Doesn't everyone love the beach? Well, I must admit that I'm a fan of the view of the beach, but I much prefer a clear blue pool. I'm not a huge fan of trying to wash sand off my feet only to put on flip flops and having to trudge through the sand again to get to the car. I remember going to the gulf coast beach often as a child and I would come home with my own little sandbox in the crotch lining of my swimsuit. Fun stuff. In the middle of January, however, I am a huge fan of the beach...warmth, sun, beauty...warmth.
Anyway, this post has nothing to do with the beach except that I did a cake for a beach theme bridal shower. My friend, Sarah sent me a picture of a cake that looked almost like this and asked for a chocolate cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling. HOLY YUM, Batman! That's my kind of girl since chocolate cake is really the the best kind of cake worth consuming the extra calories. So, at the unholy hour of 1:00 a.m., I finished it, smiled and nodded in approval to myself.
I wish you a very smooth wedding and a long life of happy marriage, Sarah's friend!
