I Don’t Know If It Tastes As Good As It Looks

13 Oct 2012

Two months ago…

Me: Who’s doing your wedding cake?

My sister: Why do you want to know?

Me: I have a friend who’s getting married and you said your cake lady is pretty reasonable.

Sis: Oh, okay. I have her number at home. I’ll text it to you later.

Me: ‘Kay. Thanks.


Last night…

Sis: Oh, my God! Thank you!

Sis’s new husband: That’s the wedding cake she really wanted.

Me: I know.

(My sister’s favorite movie is The Nightmare Before Christmas and she really wanted a themed wedding, but those are hideously expensive. So I got her a second wedding cake.)

Sis: How did you do it?

Me: Remember when I asked you for the name of your cake lady two months ago?

Sis: Oh!

Me: Yeah. You’re so easy to fool.

It’s a chocolate mint cake, but I don’t know for certain because, to her new husband’s disappointment, my sister didn’t let anyone eat it. She’s freezing it for her one-year anniversary.

    Weddings are hideously expensive. My husband and I only invited immediate family and still managed to spend almost $5,000 dollars. We had it at my sister’s house.

      It’s the wedding premium. As soon as you attach the word wedding to something, the price goes up by 50% to 300%. A normal updo might cost $50, but a wedding updo will cost $150.

      It’s a conspiracy, I tell you.

        Oh well, at least the food looks good, and that cake is super kawaii. I had a little cake topper and cupcakes.

    You are an AWESOME sister–and not just for the cake.

      Now it’s her job to give me lots of nieces and nephews to spoil.

      And my new very sexy, very red iPod Nano arrived the same day. Karma’s not always a bitch.
