I went to a wedding shower this afternoon and was surrounded by sugar. There was a fancy cake for the bride to cut and a table full of homemade sweets. Normally I would have filled a plate with cookies and had a piece of two of cake, but it is still lent, so no sugar for me. Although everything looked delicious, it wasn’t actually that hard to pass on dessert. I was also told that while the cake looked really good, it wasn’t.
Here are some pictures so you can see what I mean.
Yes, there are teacups on the cake.
The table of cookies.
Chris’ moms famous “peaches” cookies.
There was so much left over that everyone was encouraged to take a plate of cookies home – I took two. Just because I can’t eat them now, doesn’t mean I can’t eat them later.
