What do you do when you are faced with going to a wedding and considering having or not having wedding cake. And you love cake. Particularly, wedding cake. And the last time you had it was ..hmmmm, let me think. Wow ! 1998 at your own wedding. Birthday cake , sure on occasion , but WEDDING CAKE is a whole different thing.
I started thinking about this back in December the day a family wedding date was announced. It has been looked forward to. It has been discussed in therapy . There is a plan. Other desserts were avoided because I was going to have real wedding cake in June. As the days ticked down to the
I've been there done that with the "not having any" approach. I've gone months , years with 'no sugar, no white flour.....". Yep that backfires on me eventually and the regretful comments afterwards are "it would have been better / easier to have just had one piece". And I can have one piece if I'm prepared for it. I can enjoy it and eat it mindfully with the help of a loving husband. So that is the plan.
I'm not going near the cake. I'm not going to drool or hover it, and stalk out just the right piece. I will look at it from afar. Then my husband is going to cut me an appropriate sized piece and bring it to me. The groom's cake? That will depend on what kind it is-that is optional.
It will be a beautiful, outdoor wedding in June at an old country farm house. A hot June afternoon in Georgia. I will soak it in. I will enjoy the flowers, the clothes, the people, and the joy in the new beginning. I will have a piece of cake. This is my solution.
