It is no secret that I love Glee. If you follow my tweets, or have read my blog long enough, you know I am obsessed with the show.
So, let's talk about last nights episode. The Glee club finally made it back to Regionals, and won. Why I the only one moved by their "original" songs, and Rachel Berry's performance?
I don't know if it was because I've had an exhausting past couple of weeks, and the stress of leaving my current job is finally catching up with me; but I cried my eyes out during her song "Get It Right".

Michael calls me a "Gleek." I think he is right.
Yes, I want Rachel and Finn back together. Yes, I hate Quinn and I think she is evil. Yes, I think it's awesome that Blaine and Kurt finally got together. Yes, I am a Glee nerd - and I own it!
I hope you are still reading - I'm sorry if I officially scared you off with my Gleekness. We all have flaws, right?
Well, I know today is Wednesday, which means: Wedding Wednesday!
I've been going back and forth trying to decide what kind of wedding cake I would like. Is that too greedy to admit that I would like two wedding cakes?! Let me explain.
I really want the French version of a wedding cake; which essentially is about a hundred little cream puffs filled with either vanilla or chocolate cream, covered with a caramel glaze to form a pyramid of cream puffs. I believe they are called "Croquembouche" in America.
If done the right way, they turn out beautiful - and so unique!
A part of me also want to celebrate the American tradition of wedding cake - which is where I thought "why don't we have two cakes?!" Of course, with a French twist.
I love macarons, and from the moment I started planning my wedding (10 years ago), I told myself I would find a way to incorporate them in my cake. I can't really do a pyramid of macarons, because it would look silly next to the French version of the wedding cake.
So I thought - why not do cupcakes topped with a mini-macarons? Cute, thought right? Or course, I would love a full on big wedding cake, topped with macarons just like this one,
But I am not sure that I can afford two large wedding cakes. So I might just settle for cupcakes topped with a mini-macaron.
What do you think?!
Welcoming all suggestions and ideas here!
Happy Hump Day ladies!!!
