wedding+cake

although i know how
rarely make wedding cakes
here's the deal

elaborate
fancy
wedding cakes 
take time to 
build
(yes, just like pedro says)
which means
by the time
you
cut into that cake
it
is
old

yes
there are tricks
soak it in syrup
it will seem moist
(when really, it is just wet)
freeze it
suspending the stale
or
up the filling to cake ratio

all good ways to get the job done
but
not my thing
i'm a bit of a jerk about it

wedding cakes are expensive
and should be
delicious

which means
for me
baking and assembling
as
the bride is donning her veil

that being said
there are times
when you can't keep me from 
making a cake

last weekend 
was one of them

my younger brother got married
last of the lot
&
the bride requested
lemon

made
this

lemon meringue cake
(recipe and instructions)

fondant topper
honoring
the year of the dragon

flowers
matching the bride's bouquet

  2. I have a hunch that was one of the most delicious wedding cakes EVER, in addition to looking gorgeous! Your brother is lucky two times over to have found his love and to have you for a sister!
