wedding reception in usa (part 4)

alternate title: cutting the cakes

The cakes

Our cakes were made by our wedding coordinator.  The "wedding cake" was strawberry, while the groom's cake was chocolate.  And, can I just say they were DELICIOUS!!  I don't care for most cakes . . . but this stuff was great! 

The groom's cake has a Chinese "chop" (or seal) that is supposed to be the wedding word for double joy or double happiness inside a door, which Lawrance choose because he and I (two joys) were starting a new home (door).  BUT . . . they left off the bottom part of the "double joy" . . . so EVERYONE--American and Taiwanese--ask us what it means. :)

Cutting the cakes was a blast!!  Lawrance had no idea what we were going to be doing.  I didn't tell him anything.  I just told him "wait and see."  So, he really was clueless, which made it WAY more fun for us and our guests too.

Posing with the Cake


Feeding him a rather large piece, but doing it nicely.


His reaction. (And, me not wanting to get cake on the dress.)


Me preparing a SMALL piece for him to feed me.


He wants a big piece and says, "Now I will show you how we do it in Taiwan."


As he puts it in his own mouth, I am a bit confused thinking he is going to feed himself.


Then I realize what he is going to do . . . and EVERYONE laughs loudly as they figure it out too!!


If you haven't figured it out yet . . . He wants me to eat it FROM HIS MOUTH!!!!  OH MY!!


After all that drama . . . we move on to the groom's cake.


Obviously, cutting it together.


And, to ensure he didn't make me eat from his mouth again, we fed each other at the same time. :)


Yay!!  It was so much FUN!! 

And what was wonderful too . . . is that a big plate of the leftover cake was snuck into the honeymoon suite for us.  We got to enjoy our wonderful cake throughout our honeymoon!  Thanks to whoever did that . . . Mom??  Sarah??
