Mango Cake with Passion Fruit Cream

Then another friend suggested a garnish of mint! So needless to say this was a community effort well worth it.

Croatian and Polish Wedding

27 Jul

Last weekend we enjoyed a wonderful array of food in North Vancouver by a wonderful catering service called Forage. The groom was my cousin  who has a Croatian background. The church ceremony was at the immaculate heart of Mary in Vancouver and the reception was held on the fifth floor of the Vancouver school board building. There was a balcony with beautiful views of the Vancouver harbour.
