****SIGH***** it is finally done
a weeks worth of sugar, marshmallow, big messes and lots of painting is over
and it resulted in what I believe is the best cake HEATHER and I have made together
*A quick story on the couple, they both work with James out at Hanford....it was very much a Jim/Pam relationship from the office (He liked her, she had a boyfriend, break up from boyfriend, date for a few years and then they get engaged)...and now they are finally married. It was out on their property, it was a beautiful wedding with great food, and the bride was the prettiest I think I have seen her (but then again, I don't think I have ever seen her out of her camo work clothes!)

Congrats Dustin and Katie!

It got there safe!! Probably the bumpiest rides of my life. And right when we left the house as we were getting onto the free way, a truck RIGHT IN FRONT OF US blew its tire! Talk about stressful
The back of the cake
Ahhhh, we are done....good job Heather!
***ON ANOTHER NOTE***
James and I were able to stay for the wedding since he is friends with the bride and groom. They had a roast pig with ribs, chicken, potato salad, IT WAS VERY TASTY
James and I are big fans of the Travel channel's Bizarre foods, James always talks about sucking the marrow out of the bones when we eat chicken wings since "but that's what the guy would do off of bizarre foods"
So once James saw that roast pig......there was a glimmer in his eye.....he had to eat the EAR. I tried to talk him out of it....his coworkers were behind him all the way.
Here is the pig ear eating adventure in pictures
**Look! he is so excited to have gotten the pig ear. I haven't seen a smile that big for a long time**
(There is earwax looking stuff in the middle there, and some hair)
**MMM That is a big bite James! Uhhh, I think he just ate the part with the earwax.....**
**Not as good as he thought it would be.....he didn't take another bite**
I love my husband...I love that he loves to try new things....even if it is a pigs ear, he makes me laugh everyday
The end

Awesome job on the cake! I've been in cake transporting vehicles before and it IS stressful! Glad it made it there safely.

That's cool he went for the pig ear! Too bad it wasn't as good as Andrew Zimmern made it out to be, but he eats and likes all sorts of gross stuff of his show.

Great job on the cake! It is so beautiful!

So anywho... when this baby comes you will probably get the call so everyone in the ward knows :) haha... hopefully you don't mind... I hope you guys had a great 4th and see you soon!!!
