Tracy and Jeff’s Cakes

Cousin Tracy and Jeff had three different cakes at the wedding shower yesterday. This one was the vanilla bean one…

This was the carrot cake…

I had half a slice of the chocolate ganache and a slice of the carrot cake. Both were delicious! I think the vanilla bean was probably equally yummy, but I didn’t get to try it. Brian had half a slice of chocolate ganache cake leftover and I was really tempted to eat the rest of it. I ran to the bathroom real quick (well, not so quick – Brian said that I tied up the bathroom and there was a line of people behind me wanting to use it) to brush my teeth and put my braces back in so that I wouldn’t eat his leftover cake. LOL.

Susan G. Komen Benefit Dinner at Carrabba’s

Please join Carrabba’s Amici Club at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, September 21, for a special four-course wine dinner benefiting Susan G. Komen of Wichita. You’ll get a taste of a variety of wines from Carrabba’s award-winning wine list paired with four delicious courses of hand-prepared house favorites.

The cost is $40 per person (cash or check only). Credit Cards will not be accepted. Half of the proceeds will be donated back to Susan G. Komen of Wichita.

Does that sound delicious or what? BTW, some of these events are invitation-only so be sure to sign up for the Amici Club to start getting invites. Seating for this event is limited so you’ll need to RSVP by Tuesday, September 20, if you plan on attending.

I will unfortunately be unable to attend as I missed Zumba today because Brian and I had swing dancing lessons. So I promised Gina Ann that I would not miss on Wednesday. These Amici Club events are awesome, though. This one is even more special since 50% of the event proceeds go toward a great cause. Anyway, you have to sign up if you’re not already a member!
