Blooming lovely!

Chris is very patiently allotting slots on his Netflix queue to and sitting through (probably so he can clear UP his Netflix queue) episodes of Pushing Daisies with me, which, a little kitschy, a little silly, but possibly the coziest show of all time. I love it. I want to live in it. Well, mostly just in Olive Snook's floral wallpapered apartment and Chuck's floral vintage-style dresses. I don't know when I became such an English garden hound, but there is no recovery in sight.


Further to the preceding post, maybe we should have a reality show-type contest for the cake whereby you guys post pictures or links to pretty ones. I'm really hitting a wall. Two and a half months out and I have yet to order it! We don't have a huge budget, so it can't be large, and I don't think our baker does fondant, so it can't be elaborate. My mom had pearl dots on her cake, so I want something different. Maybe something either very very smooth or something very very textured. And while I do secretly adore pale pink cakes, I think I'll be the one pushing daisies if I try to talk Chris into it. Especially since he kindly didn't call off the wedding after Tables: To-Number-or-To-Otherwise-Designate Breakdown of 2009.

I really need to watch that show.

In regards to the cake, I say make it match the one on your stamps. =) Or, like I saw on cakewrecks today, you could have it in the shape of a tree stump.

How about pie? Pies are nice.

I find it hilarious (mostly because I'm done; sorry) that you are having all the same difficulties I had. I cared not one whit about my cake. My mom arranged for everything having to do with the cake (our cake, the guests' cake, the topper, the flowers, the service set, etc., etc., etc.). And she did a lovely job.

Meanwhile, do not mourn fondant. It tastes like paste.

I do love pies...but I think I really want cake. I LOOOVE wedding cake. Seriously, I'm the girl who always secretly wants a second piece.
