We Had a Wedding (part 2)

Each wedding has it's own unique flavor. This one was Mexican.
:0)

We ate Mexican food brought by the groom's family and a few close friends. The bride's father also contributed a very large pot of green chile stew. (He's still got a little bit of New Mexican in him.) It was all so yummy, but the best part was the cake.

If you have never enjoyed the pleasure of Tres Leches Cake, you are missing out. It is quite possible I have gained back every ounce I lost in the past three weeks of watching my eating habits. I think I could gain weight just thinking about that cake!

Whipped cream frosting, moist, light cake in both vanilla and chocolate with pieces of pineapple hiding here and there. Oy vey! (ha ha!) It would have been easy for the bridal couple to make an absolute mess with cake like that, but they were tame and civil with only a hint of possible mischief on the second forkful. Even those were empty threats. Besides, that cake was much too good to waste. (I had chocolate the first time around and vanilla the second... but I shared... and that makes it all good.)

In the end several leftover pieces went into the trash. They were already on plates. So sad. (I actually heard myself say, "Goodbye, cake...") However, the story ended on a happy note. We left a good sized piece of cake for the park caretaker and took almost half a vanilla cake home. Oh, my! I had almost as hard a time sharing that as I did sharing my camera. Maybe even harder.

PS. Don't miss part 1 below.

  1. Congratulations, your baby is a married woman! Wow, huh? It looked like a beautiful celebration, and she was a beautiful bride. Sergio looks positively thrilled:) Three milk cake: Mariel made it once, and I told her she can't make it again as it is irresistible to me. mmm. Phew, though, isn't it such a relief when it all falls into place?

    1. Yes, it is! I kept telling her it would all work out, but when we were home with all the decorations and no way to get to the park, I did start to stress out. :0) Thankfully, God had it all under control.
      I have a brand new favorite cake. Yes, irresistible.

  2. Oh how beautiful. I love milk cake too. Was introduced to it recently. Yummy. The couple are so sweet together. When Michel got married to Miguel (Mike) His parents did the reception and it was delicious mexican food. They roasted a pig and we had a full carnetas dinner and a mexican band (which I cannot spell)...but it was fun.
