What I Did in San Francisco

I love weddings.

And the wedding of a dear friend is even better.

Especially when you like the groom (not always the case, right?).

Especially when that friend has great taste and knows how to throw a good party.

But weddings are also kind of tough, because they are sort of like goodbyes.  Goodbye to a way of life.

But they are also hellos, too.  Hello to a new way of living and a bright future.

In other words, I never really got why people cry at weddings until I watched my best friend get hitched under some redwoods one California evening.

Anyway.  Don't lets get all sappy now.  This blog is about food, after all.

And I got to make the cupcakes.

Lime, berry, vanilla and lavender.  Fun with frosting colors, and something for everyone.

Plus those little edible pearl things.  Edible pearl things!  Brilliant!

Happy wedding, old friend.  Thanks for letting me be a part of it.

Anna! I couldn't bear tossing all the leftovers out so I filled my freezer with them. After 10 minutes thawing on the counter they are maybe 70% as good as fresh. If I don't let it thaw at all it's pretty weird, since they were so moist to begin with the cake is frozen solid and it's a bummer to gnaw through.


Thank you so much. If you have any design or website needs let me know, chris and I can help out

freezing is a great idea, libby! much better than shoving them all in your face before they go bad, which is probably what i would have tried. i'm so glad they worked out, and even more glad i was able to go to your wedding! don't worry, i will never not hit you up for website and design help. :) love you.
