Today we were planning to play golf with our good friend Ruth. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and we were primed and ready.

As you may remember, Ruth is a lady of MANY talents. She is not only a darn good golfer, but she is also a professional-quality seamstress and a wedding-cake-designer extraordinaire!

Last year I posted some pictures of some of her cake creations, as some of you may remember.

Well, this morning she had asked our help in delivering a bride’s and a groom’s cake for a BIG wedding. (Then, unfortunately, she had to go to work on short notice at her part-time job so she couldn’t play golf with us. But that’s another story.)

Anyway, the cakes she created for today’s wedding were simply gorgeous. I just HAVE to show them to you. Here is a shot of the Bride’s cake, complete with edible “pearls.” The white roses are real flowers and thus are NOT edible. Unless you like roses. To eat.

The cake itself is Italian cream.

Check out the detail!

And to me, the piece de resistance is the Groom’s cake. It’s three thick layers of German Chocolate cake with a duck hunting theme. Here’s the full cake.

Isn’t Ruth a marvel? She’s not cheap, but she’s awfully good at what she does.

Wow! Ruth puts out masterpieces!
That groom's cake is different. Come to think of it, I've seen or heard of a groom's cake before.

Hmmm ... "erieorb" is the word verification.
