More Cake Love

Over the weekend my fabulous friends had a bridal shower and bachelorette party for me. It was great fun. One of the best parts was the cake my friend Steph made.


She was inspired by the Mexican flags from our invitations and I think she did a great job! She also designed, in cahoots with Matt, an NPR inspired Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me bridal shower quiz. Instead it was called Mate, Mate, Don't Tell Me and luckily I won the prize of our dissertation committee member's voice on our home answering machine. This may sound like a lame prize but if you knew us or him it would be hilarious.

Luckily the gals didn't do to much to embarrass me. Although I did sport around a "veil" later in the night.

Wow, that's amazing fondant techniques there. I hate that stuff with a passion now myself, he he he.

You know I don't think I ever asked you want part of Nebraska you're from. I come from Norfolk myself.

I totally forgot to get a picture of the inside of the cake. There were 3 layers of lemon cake separated by raspberry - my favorite. It looked good and tasted good!
