Here is the wedding cake we made yesterday for the wedding (today) of my friends Eddie Hostetler and Carolyn Dienes.

There will be only five (5) of us gathered in person, including the bride & groom, the Matron of Honor (the groom’s 88-year-old mother Hilda) and my friend Garnet who will officiate.

I have written a new poem for the occasion which I will post later, along with the recipe for the Italian Wedding Cake pictured above.

I would also like to invite all of my Medium friends to join the ceremony virtually if you are interested and able. Here are the details:

Time: Apr 18, 2020 12:45 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) — the meeting starts 15 minutes early for folks who need to work out technical issues beforehand. The wedding will commence at 1pm!
