The cake!

Another shot of the cake, or well, the three cakes. (And there's a spare in the fridge.)

starter
And the food - the starter was this cheesecake with red onions, topped with bleak roe. It's on a bed of aragula (rocket) and served with a herb oil. Lena made it for our Twelwth night menu, and the recipe is posted here. (In Swedish.)

varm
Slow-cooked beef tenderloin with potato au gratin and a chanterelle sauce

dessert
And for dessert, vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce

It was a wonderful day and a great party! Must admit that I'm a bit tired now, but it was all worth it. I'm really pleased with how the cakes finally turned out - but let me just say that for my birthday tomorrow, I'm BUYING a cake...

Wow, the cakes look like a dream, you did great, and the bride and groom look really cute. I hope they had a wonderful day.

Pene said...

You did a great job, Anne. May I ask what was the cake like inside? Do you have a photo of the cut cake?

dagmar said...

What a great job you did! The cakes look wonderful! And the happy couple looks great as well!

linda said...

The cakes look wonderful indeed! Like Pene I'm curious about the inside of the cake....

Holler said...

The cakes look beautiful, as does the bride! I like the sound of that cheesecake (hold the roe). You must sit back and take it easy now Anne.

Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! (That's one for each photo. : )

What a lovely couple and a gorgeous spread. I bet everyone had a fabulous time. I made a wedding cake (well, three cakes stacked) once for a dear friend, so I know a little of what you were going through. What a tremendous job you did.

And, most importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNE!!!! Seems like you just had one--how fast the time goes by. xxx

Oh my good, we are married! =) Thank you Anne, for the great cakes! We loved them! They were so beautiful and they tasted wonderful! I could not wish for a better friend, you and Per are the best!

Anne said...

Alissa - sure, I'll make a separate post of it.

Tesse, I'm so glad you're pleased :) And you know, to get good friends, you have to be one - and you sure are. *hugs*

Jeanne said...

Wow - check out those fantastic cakes! The next time I renew my vows, I know who I'm asking to do the cake... The couple look very happy & relaxed - and I'm intrigued by the savoury cheesecake starter.
