This was a very traditional Ukrainian wedding, with the Starosty (Elders…Godparents carrying the icons), the Korovai – a Symbolic Ukrainian Wedding Bread, Greeting Bread with salt and wine, lots of embroidered runners (rushnyky), special Icons for the Newlyweds, the Wedding Cake of course, and lots…lots…lots…of food at the Cocktail Hour and at midnight at the Venetian Hour.
This time I will even share pictures of the dress of the Bride, the Bride’s Maids and the Starostyna (Godmother carrying the Icon).
Apricot Cake is a must on my dessert table, especially when my sons are visiting for the holidays. Even though they like most of my baked goods, this one is their favorite, because it is not readily found in bakeries or restaurants. A friend of mine, who is not a big fan of apricots, gave this cake her vote.
