We have a wedding!

This was the first "hint...."

                        .....and this was the second!   

Do you see something "peeping" out between the bears and in front of my little Irish maiden in the top picture?  Look closely, now.  That is a bride and groom standing there!

The second picture is an illustration of tiered cake pans.  A wedding is where cakes of this type will most usually be found!

So - that is the "mystery" of March 17!  Farm Girl had an idea in the comment section in my last post.
Our "Country Girl" will marry her "Country Gentleman" on that date!  And - we are going to be very busy!  We will be baking both the wedding cake and the groom's cake - as well as assorted other "delicacies."  So, if the posts become few and far between now and then, we probably have our hands in flour, dough, or whatnot.:-)

I will post some pictures of some of the finished products, as well as a recipe or two, after the event.

Now, I know I said that the next post would feature chicken.  Well, it just wouldn't be right to do that since "Country Girl" is a vegetarian!  Instead, I will refer you to a wonderful recipe for Black Bean Soup from that was posted a few weeks ago.  It is an outstanding soup!  She is also an outstanding cook!  Guess I should mention that she's one of our daughters.:-)

Thank you so much for reading along and adding your comments.

Next post - can't be sure when that will be.  Never fear!  There will be another one coming!:-)


  1. Can't wait to see the food(s)/cake you create! xo Diana

  2. You have been busy this week, preparing for that CADES lunch, and your life is going to be busy for the next two weeks! I'm very excited for these two lovely young people who have found each other, and looking forward to seeing those marvelous cakes that you will create! Just a hint for others--I had to blow the picture up larger to see that tiny bride and groom in the top picture, but they are there! We'll be happy to see your entries whenever you have a chance, so don't stress yourself on our account. :-)

  3. How fabulous. Enjoy all the wedding preparations. I never got any of the hints. Thanks for the reveal!

  4. Nellie, you're a character. I definitely look forward to your baking results!
