I got a call from my Future Mother InLaw the other night.. she has offered, along with his Aunty and Sister-in-Law to make the desserts for our wedding.. At first I said thanks but no thanks because I didint want anyone to be put to work or have to stress on the day..
But she said that was nonsense, most of the preparation could be done a day or so beforehand, that they have cooked for large numbers before and it would taste heaps better than stuff done by a catering company, and would probably end up costing less than a cake.. It became apparent that she really really wanted to it..
So I've said agreed.. and I think its pretty cool.. they are each masters of good wholesome country cooking.. and I love the idea of a dessert buffet, where people can pick and chose from a selection of beautifully displayed goodies.. There is something really nice about the idea of cakes, slices and biscuits, all homemade by the Misters family! And the nicest part is I can tell that she is really excited and looking forward to doing it all, she keeps calling me up with different ideas and stuff.
I think all the desserts with be very sweet indeed.
Sort of a little bit like this
