It’s been a crazy, wonderful week, we had our cocktail reception party on Saturday night and it was fantastic!  Friends and family have raved about everything and enjoyed a really great night, I look forward to sharing all the juicy details with you.

We spent quality time with friends and family at various gatherings, I had another fantastic night at a girlfriends medicine graduation ball on Wednesday night and lot’s of running errands and trying to catch up on everything that fell by the wayside.  Today it’s like aahhh, I finally feel a bit like I can catch my breath a little, but there are only 9 sleeps until Christmas!!  I still have Christmas cards, baking and wedding thank you’s on the to do list.

I feel with the wedding, the honeymoon, reception, and all the celebrations happening it’s time for me to step back from the blog a little bit over Christmas and enjoy some quality time with my husband, love saying that, and friends and family.  So I’ll be back with Friday Link Love, better than ever, and with wonderful posts sharing all my wedding and cocktail receptions details and photos for you in the new year.

Cake Pops for Christmas or Just Because…

Cake Pops are the latest thing for your sweet tooth, and I can see these featuring in weddings more next year, they would be great in a candy/dessert bar.  I love these themed boxes from Truffle Pops in Victoria, Australia.

Macaron vs Macaroon

I know that some of you may understand the difference, but most people don’t, even bakers and chefs and people you would expect to know the difference between a Macaron and a Macaroon, often simply have no clue.  I learnt the difference because my mother baked Macaroons, the coconut kind as did my many mums in the 80’s.  Some clever pumpkin has come up with the perfect explanation, visual of course, perfect for this highly confusing pair of goodies.

MvsMI usually call them French Macarons and Coconut Macaroons to help differentiate.  So I hope if you didn’t know the difference you are now “in the know”, meanwhile I’m pigging out the leftover Macarons from the cocktail reception…goodbye waistline, hello running.
