On the plus side, the shriveled old rose petals distract the eye away from the poor cake construction. The weird grass sprigs sprouting haphazardly from the side and top help in that arena, too. LOL

What could be better than a decadent chocolate cheesecake with a fudge brownie bottom layer? That same decadent cheesecake covered in rich chocolate ganache then wrapped in chocolate for a grooms dessert table.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this cute little store in Remington, VA called The Farmers Wife. I would have posted a picture of the food but we ate it too quickly. ;-) In addition to the home made food, the store carries lots of neat items to buy.

Very interesting. I prefer my cake without petroleum products. What about you?

Very interesting. I prefer my cake without petroleum products. What about you?

My birthday was last week and I had only one thing on my mind. Can you guess what it was? Nope, it wasn’t thoughts about getting older, or what presents I wanted this year or where I wanted to go … Continued

A perfect idea for a fall wedding; pies for the dessert table. Pecan, apple, blackberry, buttermilk, coconut cream, chocolate fudge, and pumpkin all with decorate crusts to match the fall theme. The adorable pie crust tree (with engraved heart) was inspired by their invitation.

Not all buttercream is created equal.....

American Buttercream: Butter and powdered sugar. VERY sweet and the powdered sugar has a slight grainy feel in your mouth. It's what most of us are used to in the U.S.

Bad American Buttercream: Crisco (or some other brand of shortening) and powdered sugar. It's what you get from grocery stores and big box stores. Sadly, many bakeries use it also. It's also very sweet and you still have the grainy feel from the powdered sugar but with the added bonus of a greasy coating on your tongue. Not to mention all the chemicals from the shortening.

European Buttercream: Cooked sugar, eggs, and butter. It isn't overly sweet, it is rich and luscious. It's almost like eating ice cream but it's not cold. I have friends that want it by the bowl full to eat with a spoon (no worries, I won’t name names ;-) ). The ingredients are more expensive and it’s much more labor intensive and time consuming to make but its soooo worth it. Once you taste this type of buttercream, you will never want any other kind.

I like the way this photographer tells the couples story in both words and pictures.

Brittney and Chris were married on June 1, 2013. When Brittney contacted me about being the wedding photographer for her intimate backyard wedding in Waxahachie, Texas, I was thrilled. The bride and groom met online in 2011 and got engaged over the holidays, while they were unfortunately sick with...
