I don't like cake very often. There are some cakes that are delicious, but I much prefer pies. The decision was made as soon as the question came up of what we would have at our wedding. Pies!
I asked my mom and my mother-in-law to be in charge of collecting the pies. Some were brought in from a caterer, some were brought in from Sunday School ladies, and some were made by aunts in the kitchen the day of the wedding. (It was a great relief on my small wedding budget to have all of these desserts donated. Someone even thought to bring whipped cream!)
I only got to grab one bite of pie as I was passing by the table after the last dance, but some awesome lady also send a pie home with us. We still have some of it in our fridge, and I'll tell you what. Never have I ever imagined cherry pie could be this amazing. It's fresh cherry, and I must get the recipe.
My ultra favorite is cheesecake, and my mother-in-law was able to make my dream come true of having cheesecake for what Caleb and I would cut and feed each other. She had her famous baking friend ship us one from Charleston, SC. I like how she made it a heart, and I also like how she included one for Caleb and I to save for our first anniversary. I also really, really like the golden fox cake toppers I made. xo!
