A Buttercream Weekend - In Need Of Fruit!

Monday, November 10, 2008

Honey And Lavender Opera

Update 1: for a first account of the weekend, read John's post here.

Update 2: Sorry for the confusion but this was not the wedding cake, I was just dipping into the archives to illustrate the buttercream.

As you can see I am using a little trip in the archives to sum up the last 5 days spent at Lisa's for her wedding. There was a lot of buttercream indeed, a little over 6 pounds of it actually for her wedding cake. I am still at her house and won't be back until later tonight but I will run some funny-interesting numbers for you later in the week. The food was beyond good, the people and friends I met were absolutely fantastic and even though there were quite a few nights that led to a 5am bed time, when we finally sat down this afternoon there was a huge smile on everybody's face a couple of miles long. I have so many stories and memories that it is all a big happy blur in my head right now and as soon as I download and go through all the pictures tomorrow, I will make sure to give you an idea of what an incredible trip it was.

I thought that a little trip into Opera land with a previous Daring Bakers challenge that I loved will give you a tasty tease of more creamy pictures to come...not to mention that the legs in the picture above look nothing like mine after prepping and dancing all night long (was it the vodka or the shoes...who knows?!!). I missed B. and the pupps and now that the festivities are over, my body tired and my heart filled, I am seriously craving a little detox. I know exactly what to make on Tuesday morning to fix this: Apricot And Lavender Panna Cottas! I froze a bunch of apricots over the summer but I guess good quality preserved ones can do in a pinch.

Lavender and Apricot Panna Cotta

Why I am still awake you might ask? Overdrive...pure and simple and so happy about it at the same time!! The topper? Meeting John and R. who came from Pittsburg to be at Lisa's party and spending 5 awesome days with Kelly who flew back to San Diego Sunday afternoon. More on all of this later...

Astrid said...

Oh I can't wait for your upcoming posts, it sounds like the wedding and its preparation were really special!
Ugh, while you were whipping off 6 pounds of buttercream, I was ruining yet another batch. I can't seem to make buttercream, despite all the tips I've read on the subject.

Wennycara said...

Really nice. Good work ;)

I don't think there's any way to show that smile in text but this makes me smile pretty close to that right now too.
Thanks so much for the tease, can't wait for your write up!

veron said...

Can't wait to hear all about the trip! I tried to call last Friday but no one was picking up and maybe I had the wrong number. Sounds like so much fun!

VeggieGirl said...

SO much excitement for you!!! Can't wait to read more :-)

sleepingbearinthekitchen said...

But yes, the buttercream was divine!! The chance to meet some very wonderful folks was even better!! But for the fact that it was Lis' wedding and that stole the show...Helen, your legs or more specifically the tights that covered them brought you in as runner-up!!!

Wonderful,
Wonderful,
WONDERFUL PEEPS!!!
Hugs
J

Aislyn said...

How beautiful! Like everyone, I am curious how you did the legs. I have been admiring your blog for awhile - it has been very inspiring and my kitchen has never smelled better...have a wonderful time.

Tartelette said...

The legs are made with tulip paste and you can find the recipe here:

eliza said...

wonderfully done!

leaca said...

Wow, tasty. You never stop amazing me.

Jenny said...

Looking forward to the pictures!

giz said...

I'll bet that was quite the wedding and knowing some of the people who attended, I'll bet it was just a hoot. Big congrats to Lis. I'm just confused - did you make the Opera cake for the wedding? I can't even imagine 6 lbs of buttercream.

We've reserved your spot in detox. Isn't Montreal just the best city!!!

Passionate About Baking said...

Love that Opera Helen...I remember seeing it on the DB challenge & my jaw fell off!! I bookmarked the panna cotta but never got there, borrowed the silver leaf idea & used it elsewhere!! Refreshing indeed!! That much buttercream? Have fun!!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

I love those legs!

I'll bet the wedding cake you made was the most spectacular and yummy one ever.

sefa firdaus said...

I really want to see the full version of the wedding cake.
Love the legs, though!

My Sweet & Saucy said...

What a good friend you are! I bet she LOVED them!

Tatie said...

Ma petite cherie, ce gateau de mariage devait etre superbe! J'ai hate de voir les photos!

Cakespy said...

Can't wait to hear more--you've left us all with quite a delectable teaser!

Lori said...

I got one thing to say, "Nice tights"!

kellypea said...

I'm exhausted! And I heard the snow came in today, so I hope you got home okay...mmmm...memories of that luscious cake and buttahcream. A total work of art & lots of laughs to go with it. So happy to have been a part of it all.

Jerri - Simply Sweet Home said...

Great looking cake. So creative!

A Fan said...

I know it's not the actual wedding cake but I am never tired of seeing your beautiful photographs.

A Fan said...

Angela said...

That's a whole lotta buttercream, and I'd imagine a whole lot of fun, too.

Looking forward to seeing all the pictures!

cindy* said...

i can't wait to see your photos from your trip...how wonderful it must have been! a little part of me is swept away with each wedding i attend, it must be the display of love that gets me.

Jada Ach said...

I. Am. Speechless. This is too much goodness for one post!

Kim said...

Have been thinking about you all weekend imaging how much fun you all must be having. Can't wait to see the pictures of everyone and the cake! Welcome home and I still have never had a panna cotta, and must do something about this as soon as I am off the diet.

Fifi Flowers said...

BUTTERCREAM... yummmmmmmyyyyy!
What a FUN cake! Love the legs!
Hope all is well with you!

Alana said...

Your photos and food look amazing, I will have to try some out!!

Karole said...

I made the panna cotta with peaches yesterday and it turned out wonderful! We could not stop eating them!!
Thank you for sharing your recipes with us.

Mike of Mike's Table said...

I think that opera cake photo of yours is one of my favorites and for some reason, those legs really made it stick in my head, lol!

Inne said...

Sounds like you had an absolute blast! Great tights btw.

last said...

Your work captures so much more than merely "food on a plate". You have such eye for presentation, and an exquisite attention to detail, it's a pleasure to see you crafting your art. That being said, luxurious treats aside, I must know where you found those exquisite little wide mouthed jars. I scoured a few shops I'm familiar with,, and eBay, but couldn't find anything even close. Where did you find them??
