The cake!
Because wood is the theme for this milestone, we had Jennifer incorporate it into the cake. It’s actually kind of funny because while I was thinking ‘renovation projects’, Jennifer was thinking “woodsy.” Andrew chortled, “Yah, ‘cuz we’re so outdoorsy, it seems to fit.” Not. ūüėÄ

Nevertheless, the cake is adorable. As chronic chocoholics, we insist on the annual chocolate-chocolate mousse layered cake. The granache appears to have a wonderful wood faux finish topped by cocoa dusted meringue mushrooms.

    Your cake, as usual, is delightfully done with an unexpected flair and design. No wonder you are on such good terms with the pastry chef at the art Museum! Did you say that your wedding cake is pictured in their “weddings and wedding cake” sample book?? Now will you ever forgive us for our memory lapse?? We really would love to have a frameable copy of your Honeymoon picture!

    Happy Belated Anniversary to you both! It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years. The cake is definately droolworthy, both to look at and I’m sure to taste as well. Here’s to many more than 5 more happy years together – a good marriage really is like fine Scottish Whisky – it just gets smoother and better as it ages.

    So that’s what you call a demanding M.I.L.????? How can I turn that idea around? I must remember to make up that list you will accuse me of leaving after I’m dead and gone!!!!
    Oh, Deary Me, What shall I ever do?????
