Vanilla anniversary biscuits

Paper is the gift given for a first wedding anniversary.  In keeping with tradition I bought my husband a writing set but I couldn't resist baking these cookies...they are supposed to be for a wedding but why not relive the happy memories on your anniversary day

Surprise Surprise

My in-laws are about to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary.  The kind of celebration that calls for a party, a surprise party in fact.  After several months of planning and cake deliberation my husband and I found ourselves greeting guests before the big reveal.  It was so difficult keeping the secret for over three months, I'm amazed that nobody gave it away, especially as we were expecting over 80 guests.
