Friday Movies:
Rachel Getting Married


I’m very glad that Rachel Getting Married came out when it did, because I learned a lot about weddings that I hope doesn’t happen at Megan and Ryan’s wedding party in November. (A) Potpourri of World Music. (B) Excessive toasting. I want to go to a party, not a spectacle.

    Re Megan and Ryan’s wedding party: After viewing all of those Cake Wrecks, you must be a little nervous about that detail, eh?

    But from what I’ve read, the new thing — “an increasingly popular choice with modern brides” — is to offer, instead of cake, a Croquembouche. (!)

    So…best to start practicing your spun-sugar-throwing skills right away. (Oh please, have Kathleen take photos of that, we beg you.)

    Croquembouch! I had never heard of one before, and here it was featured on last Sunday’s Desperate Housewives, with the spun-sugar-throwing included as a poorly executed demonstration that embarrassed and exposed Brie Van De Kamp, and now by the not-so-desperate guest-blogger Yvonne. Dis donc!

    Hi, Nom — Believe it or not, I’ve never seen Desperate Housewives. (Geez, first I didn’t know “Miss Yvonne”; now this! I don’t hate TV all that much…just forget to turn it on.)

    I learned of the Croquembouche trend in an internet article I read months ago (quoted in my first comment):

    Saw Martha Stewart making one — throwing the molten sugar — lord, what a project! — on David Letterman years ago. (Does that give me any pop culture cred?)
