I haven’t baked in 2011! A year without baking? Pish-posh, as if I would ever do something as silly as that! I’ve just been busy with getting back to DC, and skiing, and making pizza, and all that other ridiculousness that I do.
So instead of a new cake, let’s flash back to Sister1’s wedding. The food was absolutely amazing. Sister1 and Geoff did all the desserts themselves, and had the rest catered. Yummm!
There was a make-your-own taco bar, and these fantastic chicken meatballs – in Curry, Pomegranate, and some other flavor I can’t remember…
There was pita and hummus and tapenade, and an amazingly gi-freaking-normous baked brie with caramelized onions and garlic.
And then, of course, the desserts!
A tower of cupcakes (click the names to get the recipes):
Mocha and Vanilla (Mocha is on the bottom, Vanilla isn't pictured!)
Macaroons, Snicker Doodles, Lemon Burst, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. (All recipes here.)
And of course – the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies!
The guests took cupcake boxes home with them (or 2 or 3 or 4) as a wedding favor.
Oh man, extreme deliciousness!
