This challenge was set up by the lovely Mrs Thrifty as a way to get those usually endless 'WIPS' completed, one per week for 52 weeks and importantly to enjoy and find pleasure in the process of the making of those projects. I wasn't inclined to accept such a challenge as I hate feeling I have to do things but I thought of that list I have of things I mean to make and somehow never get around to. I thought I'd use this challenge as a way of trying to get through that list and any of those new challenges in the land of homemade. All that and any of those things I really find pleasure in making.
So for Week 1 I thought what better place to start than with THAT wedding cake! It was mainly a pleasurable experience, especially when it was done and dusted, ready to be enjoyed. So here it is...

Here is a the photo of the gorgeous Bride and Groom with their heads....the above photo was all about the cake...
Don't they look happy?
They cut the cake with a humongous sword, by the way, shame you cannot see it!
It was a wonderful wedding! The atmosphere was amazing, infectious and all the guests were up for having a huge celebration. The last wedding I was at was so serious, formal, dire and pretentious, it was actually really uncomfortable and unsettling to be there so it was bliss and such a relief to attend a wedding that was how they should be, a joy filled celebration!
Other than our own wedding four years ago, My Biscuits have never been to a full day ceremony and reception, so they had a ball.....check out their outfits!
Eldest Biscuit cannot pose seriously for a photo!
They managed to stay until the end, for Runrig and Loch Lomond, at midnight, but they did flag a little during the disco...
Not really sleeping though, just resting their eyes.
So that was the wedding, the cake and the first week of The 52Marvellous Makes Madness Challenge.
I wonder what I'll make next week?
