Wedding Wednesday: The Cake & Food

10. The Cake & Food
(To read numbers 1 - 9, click here)

Like I've mentioned before in post number 6 - The Colors - we had two events for our wedding celebration: a pre-wedding open house in California and the actual wedding in Costa Rica.

Our pre-wedding event was held at a Thai restaurant-- so you know we had some bomb foodage going on there! Yellow curry, pad thai, chicken satay, pineapple fried rice.... I can't even remember it all! I don't have a picture of the food- but I'm sure you get the gist!

Our very talented friend Amanda made us an AMAZING cake that really showed what J & I are about-- traveling! She did such an incredible job. The whole cake was shaped like a suitcase. Inside was a beach scene with little Lego figurines of J & I. She even had edible flags of every country J & I had traveled together. There were so many details, it was just really a great cake-- I wish I could have froze the whole thing to keep it forever. But it was red velvet, which is a big weakness of mine, so we had to eat it. And not only did it look awesome, it was delicious, too! The whole thing was almost gone in minutes.

Then in Costa Rica, we wanted the food to be comida tipica-- typical Costa Rican food. We had a choice of beef, pork or chicken, prepared Costa Rican style and the sides-- beans and rice, patacones (fried plantains) and a salad. Again, I forgot to have someone take a picture of the food-- but I assure you, it was delicious! I love the food in Costa Rica- it's some of my favorite.

We ordered a small cake from a local bakery in town. We sat down with the owner, talked to him about what we wanted and he really worked with our budget. They did a great job and the cake was absolutely delicious- people even said it was the best cake they had ever tasted! Since our reception was outside, so was the cake, so yes- the cake looks like it was sweating (which it probably was), but that did not affect its deliciousness. And we had to bring our Lego figurines from the California cake to add to it for the finishing touch.
