It was a great afternoon! Great to have everyone with us and some really great food. As a surprise, we gave Marnie a started for her wine cellar – 4 cases from our stash!!! And because she is making cakes now, we gave her these two books:

1).”Cake Bible”

2). “Booze Cakes – Confections Spiked with Spirits, Wine and Beer”
By Krystina Castella and Terry Lee Stone
ISBN: 978-1-59474-423-5

Two really good books. And then there was the dinner. Here are some photographs. Here is the link for Part I of Marnie’s Birthday Dinner.
