ANNIVERSARY CAKE

I made this cake for a client's tenth anniversary. It is a tiny version of the original wedding cake I made for her ten years ago. Her father who is a chef instructor hired me for both cakes. I hand made (out of gumpaste) all the flowers on the first cake and he saved them, wrapped very carefully, and gave them back to me to put on this tiny cake. What a special memory for the happy couple.

The picture below shows a picture of the original wedding cake.

The flavor of the cake and filling is lemon. Yum! one of my favorites.

What a great story - I love that the Chef dad saved the flowers from the first cake. They look just as good as new!
