Recipe For Beetroot Cake — 20 Comments

  1. Lovely.. and old-fashioned cake is now hip and trendy with the use of beets for flavor! I’m old school and believe in hand written thank you cards and I believe this is the norm. I attended a shower two weeks ago and got my card in the mail within 2 days!

    • I love handwritten thank you cards and it is so good that you received one so soon after an event 🙂

  2. What a wonderful idea to create a memory box! I haven’t been to a wedding the last three years, but we are having two in the next 5 months!

  3. This cake sounds amazing!
    On the topic of thank you cards, I absolutely agree: if not a card, then at least an email, call, Facebook post, tweet…you get the drift. With the myriad of communication opportunities, there is no excuse for not extending a simple courtesy! I had this happen recently and I was very peeved – more so because the cash I gave was demanded in the invitation (please give cash – and generously – yes really!!) I waited for several weeks and then contacted the bride, who sent a brushed-off, half-baked reply. Next time I will follow my heart and decline!

  4. I’m a bit iffy when it comes to thank you cards, but if the gift comes in the mail, I always give the person a call or a thank you email!

    LOVE this cake. The cream cheese frosting sounds divine.

  5. I can’t say I personally have been invited to many weddings because all my friends are my age 😛
    But the ones my parents get, when traditional, are so lovely!
    Like your cake actually 😀

  6. I’ve also noticed the lack of thank you cards. One I received over 6 months later. I always send a thank you, even for a birthday card. I guess it’s the way I was brought up. Lovely recipe, Tandy. I’ve saved it. 😉

  8. I too enjoy the old fashioned way of wedding invitations, which is odd because I can’t abide buying and receiving cards in general.
    When my husuband’s son married they did all the invites on the web, similar to what you experienced. I didn’t like it at all, found it way to impersonal, and pretty tacky with sections for posting your song requests – which they didn’t use – and general well wish comments.

    In general I do make a point of sending a thank you when I’ve been to somebody’s house for dinner, or if I’ve been sent a gift, but I tend to fall down if somebody has been to me and brought something as I feel I’ve thanked them on the spot. Same applies to other celebratory gifts, thank you on the spot doesn’t always generate a follow up thanks.

    • I also don’t like buying cards as people just throw them away! We have also been invited to a wedding where everything was done on the Web! I also do thanks ‘on the spot’ and then follow up via sms 🙂

  9. The last few weddings I’ve been to sent out an email ‘save the date’ a proper invitation followed. Out of the 3 weddings I have received 2 thank you notes, so 2 outta 3 ain’t bad! 🙂
