Hey, so I totally forgot to post graduation photos in the last post. And really, what would be the point of spending all that money, nine months of our lives, and the last month in a kitchen without working air conditioning for 15 hours a week if we can't at least celebrate at the end?

Apparently we were the first class to ever hand out class superlatives. Rebekah and I were excited to share them with everyone after everyone received their diplomas. Although we look mischievous above, they really were quite tame and graduation-worthy.

After the ceremony, we relaxed with some well-deserved champagne.

(Yay, we're graduated!!)

A couple of things

We graduated - yay! There are many, many things that I wanted to post here during the last weeks of school, but life got in the way.

So, as a quick catch-up, I just wanted to share some wedding cake and graduation photos. Enjoy! I'll be back with a great Linzer dough recipe that got me rave reviews when used in summertime pies.

This wedding cake, like Rebekah's earlier, was a class project done in a Marie Antoinette theme. These pictures were taken about a week after the cake had been sitting in my fridge (again, I'm going to play the 'busy life' card) so the curved bottom and top tiers look a little ... well, dumpy, here.

But you can see that the use of the gold edible paint in the beading, royal icing piping, and the furls at the top really give this cake a fun and flamboyant twist. The theme was also expounded in the chocolate cameos on each of side of the middle tier.
