    Enjoy the journey of the process of getting married-Don’t be afraid to express or apologize for the way you want your wedding to be planned- Ideas and suggestions offered are just that- suggestions- Don’t be swayed by family or friend guilt- Remember this is you and your hubby to be special day and start of your life together. So important that you allow yourself to breath it all in, and have fun, even in the stressful moments- These are memories that you will carry with you through your life- Good new is, the event will be flawless no matter what takes place in reality because all anyone will be looking at or remembering will be the union of the both of you in marriage- Pure Joy! ( Just my 2 cents from what I learned in my journey) :)
    Blessings to you both and Congratulations.

    Just found your blog! I’m making your vanilla buttercream frosting for cupcakes and your CCC recipe for a party with 30 ppl next weekend. So thankful I ran across these as they look promising and delicious! Should my hard gold sprinkles hold up well on the icing? My last recipe my other sprinkles bled right in. I live 2 hours south of you in St Mary’s county, Md! :)

    Reply

    • Sallyreplied on September 13th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      Hey Lisa (my MD neighbor)! I love both recipes you wish to make. Two classics – both favorites. Do not put the sprinkles on top of the frosting until serving. Otherwise they could bleed.
