Jedediah Revisited





A few months ago, My mom and Aunt went to lunch out Jamesport, N.Y. They were visiting the Victorian home, now turned into a restaurant and hotel, Jedediah Hawkins Inn. As my mom described the house I relived the making of a wedding cake we did a few years ago. It was an exact replica of the home. We tried to execute every last detail down to the paint colors and the hydrangea bushes that were recently planted.

The actual cake was Banana (one of my favorites) paired with Chocolate Ganache. Since the cake took place in August and it was extremely hot, and the wedding was to take place in a tent (read: NO Air Conditioning) I convinced the mother of the bride away from Chocolate buttercream in favor of the Ganache for stability reasons, thank goodness she agreed!

Anyway, I thought it was fun to look at the actual photos of the Inn next to the cake!

One of the best qualities of Mirosoft Office 2010 in particular is its organization. Microsoft word is more sleek, user-friendy, and intuitive. The pitfall of many of microsoft's programs is not in the options the program offers, but in the delivery of the program itself. With download Office 2010, Microsoft has managed to maintain and expand their options, while organizing and designing menu toolbars in a way that better fits the modern Office user.
