I started Saturday morning by making and delivering a St. Patrick's Day wedding cake.
There was not a shade of green to be seen anywhere in the elegant decor.
The wedding delivery was followed by two consultations with bridal couples. I had to turn down three, count 'em!- three other couples who wanted to meet the same day. Sheesh! What a year it's going to be!
I didn't have time to meet more brides because I had to get home and finish preparing for the bridal show on Sunday.
I made a fudge cake as my contribution to the door prizes.
And I made this fondant covered styrofoam display cake for my table decoration. Fondant is not my usual style but I had fun with the challenge of this.

This weekend was a foreshadowing of my summer to come. Until the wedding season arrives I am content to enjoy the last weekends of winter when I can stay indoors and not think about the mountain of cakes I will be baking and icing while other people are on vacation or enjoying the beach. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying that I am finding I don't long for spring like I used to. I'll enjoy my break while I still have it.
