Like Faux Fuchsia, I am starting to believe that the universe is cake-centric. While the universe directs FF to bake, it mostly just directs me to eat baked goods.
Due to wedding-in-less-than-60-days panic I am no longer allowed to eat baked goods. Mores the pity. However, the universe has instead provided me with a cake in lieu. A wedding cake to be more precise.
My parents are so lovely that they naturally attract wonderful people. And so it turns out that Martha, the 70+ Egyptian chef at their business, had a previous career as a pastry chef/wedding cake maker. As soon as she heard I was getting married she offered to make my cake!
I asked for something ruffled, somewhere in between the Taj Mahal and two tiers. A few sneak peeks of the one layer test cake she made are below. Fab or what?! I can't wait to eat it!
What sort of cake did you have? Fruit cake, icing, dessert bar? We are having chocolate cake inside ours!
