There is the adage, "life is uncertain, eat dessert first." While many of us find it humorous, few of us actually put it into practice. Well, except awesome people.
A year ago today, DC Culinarian and I were in Melbourne, Australia for the happy occasion of his brother's wedding. The bride, who has a love of all things sweet, decided that priorities must be set. Before the trip to the courthouse, before the loving vows were uttered, before the kiss to seal the deal, before the sumptuous wedding banquet overlooking the sea, there would be wedding cake and champagne. And not just any cake.
Think of all the wedding cakes you have eaten. Beautiful? Of course. Delicious? Possibly. Dry? Sometimes. Let me tell you what they were not. They were not white chocolate cake with passion fruit 'caviar', coconut mousse and ginger cookie crumble. This was the pinnacle of the wedding cake experience. It also confirmed my view that my brother-in-law has found the perfect woman.
So to them on their first wedding anniversary: may your life together be as sweet, fun, and as beautiful as your wedding day was.
I am still dreaming about that cake.
