There were chips, and the family's requisite clam dip, veggies, wings, brie, pulled pork, mac & cheese and a deli platter. I made have gone a little overboard. I may have sent enough food home with my cousin after the party for a second party. And Jess and I still ate leftovers all week.
My favorite was the cake:
I wanted it to look sort of like the invitation. Dancers on a checkerboard floor. I was really happy with how it turned out. The floor was piped on with chocolate icing, and the rest is a homemade vanilla marshmallow frosting. The main ingredient: Fluff.
I created a stencil for the dancers using a metal centerpiece and food coloring spray. The whole thing came together with the fabulous Jute Box candle (no it isn't a tombstone all you pessimists!)
