Winter Wedding & Happy New Year!

The holidays are such a busy, but fun time to catch up with family, friends and colleagues.  It is all about celebration!  In my family, we had another reason to celebrate.  My sister is getting married in a couple weeks in a private ceremony all the way in Narvik, Norway.

For weddings, the bride is usually presented with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.  So, as part of her Christmas present, I wanted to give her something blue - a cake!  She wouldn't be able to take it with her - but we enjoyed it with Christmas dinner.
The cake was winter-themed with snowflakes and a snowball on top - as its quite cold up in Norway.  The flavors were Strawberry Vanilla and strawberry buttercream on he bottom tier.  Then Chocolate Sour Cream with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream.  The snowball was lemon cake.
I wish my sister Cindy and her fiance Jon Arne an amazing 2010 and a lifetime of adventure, travels, fun and happiness!  Stay warm in Norway!
To all my family, friends, blog readers and clients - thank you for the most amazing 2009!  It was my first year officially in business - everything was better than I expected!  I'm looking forward to 2010 and wish everyone health, happiness and lots of Sweet Things!
