Naked wedding with flowers

wedding Sue & Mike Aug 2016Okay, not really a “naked” wedding with flowers; more like a naked wedding cake with flowers!
My friend Sue was marrying her long-time best friend Mike in an outdoor, country wedding. The ceremony was to be performed outside. Folks would sit on hay bales. The greenhouse which once housed Sue’s flower and garden biz, would be transformed into the dining room with one long table to seat 65 guests.
And yes, it all happened as planned yesterday in the full sun of a gorgeous summer afternoon.
The cake? We talked about it months ago and after going in different directions we decided on a carrot cake, done as a naked cake with real flowers for decoration. Lucky for me, my garden had flowering purple basil and variegated marjoram along with black-eyed Susan and nasturtium. It all came together and looked perfect sitting in the greenhouse. Like it was meant to be — just like Sue and Mike!
