Simple math: My grandmother > Paula Deen

Aug 15, 2011

My cousin Cara tied the knot in Mexico last week, so we threw her a reception this past Saturday.

It was no ordinary "oh let's just have some punch and cake" reception.

My grandmother, who is 75% Paula Deen, slaved over a hot stove all summer (seriously) baking delicious treats for the party.

Have I mentioned that my family has some seriousssss talent?

I don't think I can name a single dessert that we didn't have at the party

Get your bib out because I promise you
. . . there will be drool.

Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate chip cream cheese filling.

Cara's favorite childhood treat:
Pretzel sticks covered in caramel and dipped in chocolate . . .Heaven on a stick.
with various toppings like coconut, sprinkles, pistachios, heath bar, and oreos.

I couldn't help but sneak a bite while we were setting up.

Key lime pie cups

Petite fours 
(the only thing from the whooooooole party that wasn't homemade)

Mini fruit pastries

Cupcakes and cake balls!

Red velvet trifle with raspberries

Lemon cookies and almond wedding cookies

The greatest rainbow sprinkle cookies in America

Divinity, chocolate peanut brittle, regular peanut brittle, caramel, and fudge

Peppermint brownies

Cheese and fruit table

Coffee and biscotti table

Homemade biscotti!

My aunt even made the wedding cake alllllll by herself
