Ok can we talk about one of my favorite things to think about for our wedding. The cake and pies we are planning to serve! I mean come on what could seriously be funner to think about? Hehe. I know we want to do mostly pies at our wedding with maybe one little cake for us to cut. We are pretty darn lucky that up here on the mountain we are surrounded by apple trees as well as blackberry bushes. It makes it easy to choose, and of course it doesn't hurt that we absolutely love apple and blackberry pies!
Will kind of makes fun of me because when it comes to yummy food for everyone to eat I kind of go overboard! As of right now out guest count is 50 people with probably not too many more to be added and the amount of food and deserts I want to have is kind of ridiculous haha! But I figure whatever is left over people can join us up on the mountain the next day and help us finish it off. I mean everyone is pretty much coming from the opposite ends of the country so might as well make a huge weekend event out of the whole thing.
Ok onto some yummy looking deserts! All the sources lead you back to the recipes, just in case this post gives you the urge to try one of these guys out for yourself!
Poppy seed cake with mascarpone frosting and strawberries! Talk about yummy! I've made this guy a couple of times already now and it has always been such a big hit! The cake itself is not very sweet so with the frosting and strawberries you don't feel like your teeth are rotting out of you head, a good thing for sure! I think this is the guy we are going to make if we decide to have a cake to cut.
Apple pie is an Ellexson family tradition. My dad has always been notorious for going out to dinner and just ordering a piece of apple pie! It's pretty darn ridiculous, because you look at the man and would think he is a super healthy eater, haha! I absolutely love them made with Granny Smith apples, because they you get that sweet and tart thing going on and it is wonderful! We have a couple different varieties of apples up here, with some very yummy green tart ones!!
My beloved rhubarb pie! I would absolutely love to use rhubarb that I have grown, but if you read my last post, that might not be happening. I still have faith in my plant, so maybe! But either way there will be rhubarb pie, I demand it :)
Ok so I've never tried an Apple Toffee Galette before, but it kind of looks super yummy! Not sure if I would do that for the wedding, but maybe for the rehearsal dinner or the post wedding day brunch instead. I mean it's not like we are going to have a shortage of apples or anything.
Blackberry cobbler! Ok if for some truly bizarre reason you haven't ever tried this absolutely wonderful treat, then seriously do yourself a favor and go get all the ingredients and make it right now! I have a feeling you won't be disappointed!
We are doing barbecue for the wedding so I think all of these deserts will be perfectly complementary. I'm super excited about having my bride's ladies up here helping me with all the desert preparation. I think we are going to have a pretty fun time. Hopefully we will have a working kitchen by then cause otherwise we will be back at someones house in DC and transporting them hahaha!
What are some of your favorite pies? Or what did you end up having at your wedding?
Hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday so far.
