Post-Elopement Celebration(s)

Our post-elopement cake was made by Luci Pina of Fashionably Cake. I was turned onto Luci's work after tasting a delicious wedding cake she made for my cousin. She was wonderfully accommodating to our desires - we wanted a tropical theme to match our wedding in Hawai'i. The result was a Puerto Rican Rum pound cake with a large mango filled layer, a guava filled layer, and a small pineapple layer. We were able to have the guava layer made without rum to allow those who do not partake in alcohol to indulge as well. I am not much of a dessert person (I will almost always go towards the savory, spicy, and salty over the sweet). But as you can see, this cake can change your mind too. cake is also featured on the interactive feature from "With This Burger, I Thee Wed" Reader's Wedding Food interactive

home cooking

As many novice bloggers, I have yet to learn the art of regular postings. However, I hope to gather much data for a upcoming post. Today we will feast on home cooking, a fine blend of Filipino, Pakistani, & Western foods created by myself, my father (labeled as a frustrated farmer and cook by some), and my mother. While I am vegetarian, there will be traditional (non-veg) foods and some vegetarian adaptations. Plenty of desserts, including a "wedding" cake that features a halal tier. I'm getting hungrier as I type. Looking forward to eating and sharing the results soon.
