Met the nicest lady at the cake supply store, she's the owner and has the best prices on stuff that I needed! Cakes by Jan in Bangor, wish that I had her in my town!
A 15 layered cake? WOW! That is going to be some cake. Does Jan have an internet shop that she sells over? When A friend can recommend a place that has great prices and givers great service, I like to make them a favorite place for me too. I find that a lot of places in small towns give better service with better prices. They will go out of their way to get you what you want or need if they don't have it. It is when a company gets too large that they lose sight of the customer and have eyes only for the bottom line.

Okay I am getting nervous also. Is the local paper going to cover your wedding? Hopefully on the society pages.

The main cake is 3 tier and each tier will be 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of filling. There will be 2 satellite cakes in chocolate, those will also be 3 layers with filling.

Yes I found Jan via her online site. She had add lot more in her store and she's willing to mail just about anything. She special ordered these flowers for me a couple weeks ago. With her prices and with her only charging the actual price of postage, I'll be ordering from her for sure!

I hope you gave Rob a long Honey Do List to keep him busy while you are doing the baking and cake decorating!

Here are a few pics of the event.

I'm the bald one in case anyone was wondering!

Here we are opening gifts, this is pretty much the expression that my partner has on his face all the time,


Can you guess what's in the wrapping paper?


Our color inspiration was peacocks, our friend has wild ones roaming through her yard. One of the hostess made this for us, she loves to do sculptures, this was totally awesome! Peacocks have kind of taken over the wedding as a theme, thanks to my other half... I didn't realize that they are now trendy!


She also made these!


Here is the pan that was under the wrapping paper, from our registry.

Ramekins! Also from our registry!


A beautiful gift of flowers
Congratulations and best wishes for many years of happy partnership

I've made him a list on the Our Groceries app and I can add to it at any time!

That's brilliant. I never thought of it for a to-do list.

And Bakechef can watch items on the list disappear and stalk Rob as he gets stuff. And add more as needed!
