the cake

There will be plenty of bloggers covering the royal wedding, posting images of Kate's dress, the kiss on the balcony and ceremony. Being a food lover I'm obliged to cover the cake. Oh my, what a cake! It was made by Fiona Cairns using the Joseph Lambert technique of cake decoration, which I know absolutely nothing about. All I know is that I'll never be able to make a cake like that with my ingredients – maybe I have to abandon healthy baking!

In my mind this is simply too beautiful to cut and eat. My heart wouldn't handle the after photos.

  4. A Masterpiece, Lisa! This is art at it`s best and tons of sugar in it.... ;)

    Beautiful wedding cake! I didn`t see very much of the wedding, just important scenes on tv in the news.Unfortunately, I wasn`t very interested in seeing the whole ceremony, but I like both. They are so sympathetic! :)

    Happy weekend,Lisa! Beate XXX

  7. Wow. I love the little, thin flower detailing....it's like lace!

    I think I could handle seeing it cut into...if I were to be able to try a piece ;)
