We got to celebrate two lovely friends this weekend! They had a property with 3 swanky houses out in Leavenworth the party took place on. It was on the Wenatchee river with salmon jumping from the water, a nice big hot tub, and full of lots of good people.
And they asked me to make their wedding cake, which was a huge honor & I was shocked for at least a few months after she asked me! So I spent Thursday night hand grating 60 carrots, making runs for more eggs mid batter and knocking out 3-12" and 3-9" layers of carrot cake. On Friday we drove out and I iced the mountain cake and topped off the peaks with some glitter (we were in the mountains and they also got engaged on a mountain hike, so cute) Then on Saturday I, very very nervously assembled the cream cheese frosted cake outside atop a cute bed of ferns and greenery from the site. And I LOVE IT! I think it turned out beautifully and I'm so thankful that they gave me freedom and trust to just go with it. Plus I have to say it turned out to taste quite yummy. I was thinking I was done with carrot cake forever but after eating it, I may cave and make it again :)
