For years I've tried to convince Kait that a wedding cake wouldn't be necessary but she still wanted one. So.... I decided I would make it myself. Ann thought I was nuts. Not nuts about my ability to make a wedding cake, but about doing it when I had so many other things to do. I did most of the decorating for the reception and Jenna and I did all of the refreshments. I decided to do the wedding cake because I thought it would be fun and because I refused to pay the price of a wedding cake. I took a cake decorating class many years ago while attending BYU but I haven't made a real decorated cake in many years and I've never worked with fondant. Thanks to youtube and the advice of others and 2 practice runs everything worked out great. I thought the cake was a real success if I do say so myself.
Levi had a business trip the week before the wedding so he brought Marissa, Finn and Lila home for a visit. I had so much fun with them here. Marissa cooked dinner some nights and helped with housework throughout her visit and even if she didn't do any of that I would love having her home for a visit.
