Állófogadás--buffet reception

Look at this beautiful creative wedding cake that Mom made. How do you like the flower in the middle? I guess when you have married off lots of kids you pick up a tip or two on how to make a cake. Doesn't her fondant look great? (That's a fancy word for smooth frosting made from microwaved marshmallows.) Everyone was amazed that this was homemade--the frosting anyway.

With all this food, this must be a wedding reception.

Yep. Here's the happy couple, Timi and Peter Rimbauer, the newest members of our branch. Állófogadás literally means "standing" (álló) reception. Originally only the bride and groom were to sit but we decided to defy the name, got out chairs and joined them around the table. We brought the food over and ate family style.
