My dress has been ordered and we have started to tell some of the people we need to tell before the news is common knowledge.

We were supposed to go to TB's parents' place last night to see them and our two nieces who were down for an annual charity run. We figured it would be a good way to tell most of the family. However, my bronchitis was getting the best of me and I needed to stay home and rest.

I am phoning the pastor in the morning to set up some time to meet with him to see if he will perform the ceremony and what day is best. I have my best friend's holidays and thankfully they are not the two dates we have in mind. She missed our first wedding (I would have had her stand up for me) but was away then.

We have pretty much confirmed that the dinner will be baron of beef and all the trimmings. Now it is the desserts and the tea menu to nail down and that is not as simple.

We've Set the Date!

So, our vow renewal ceremony is going to be on August 23, 2014.

Now begins the fun!

Well, I have designed my "re-wedding" cake. We are going to have a cake for the open tea after the ceremony and dessert(s) after the private dinner.

Since it isn't a normal "wedding", I am not making a normal cake. Well, it is cake with icing and fondant, but the shape is what sets it apart. I don't want to say too much, but for those of you who saw my "defying gravity cake" for my niece, this one takes it to another level! I am going to do most of the prep and a friend of mine will do the last minute constructing, etc.

I wish August would hurry up and get here - I am going to have everything done and won't know what to do with myself!

This is the cake I was referring to.

Ours won't look anything like this, but this was my first attempt at non symetrical cakes.

That's strange, Bunny, the link takes me to a beautiful blue cake with sunflowers.

This is strange. I clicked on the link here on my PC and it came up with the cake. However, when I clicked on it earlier on my phone, I got what Bunny got.

Somebunny, if you go to my profile and the album "my cakes", in the middle is a cake in shades of blue with sunflowers. The layers are all on angles in the air! Sorry you are having problems with this.

This will give you a bit of an idea what I am going for with my cake. It will be different, but very much along these lines.
