Cake of the Week: Wedding Food

First things first, Happy National Human Trafficking Awareness Day! (Bet you didn’t know it was a holiday, did you?) Get more info here.

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!


  1. Man, your blog always makes me hungry but this one is tops! Looks like an amazing wedding. You are going to have wedding crashers the next time someone in your family gets hitched!

  2. As always, your blog make me soooo hungry!!! I agree with Jessica, actually she and I may be the ones! Hope you are enjoying the snow!

  3. Those delicious sweets make me wanna jump on the screen and eat them (lol)! But I love what you guys did about making the food choices simple enough so that the guests could enjoy them all. I totally love having simple wedding receptions, just like what me and my friend from San Diego did on our respective weddings. We both did it outdoors with the help of the tent rentals and a large canopy to keep us all under the shade.

  4. Having a great food presentation is probably one of the most important thing on catering business. Keep posting guys!
