Wedding Cake and Saturday Pudding

Bride wanted a very plain cake so she could fit fresh roses between the tiers and have an arrangement of roses on top as well. Hope it's ok for her - I made her sister's cake some years ago and that was more elaborate - pale blue flowers and cornflowers (made by me). Far prettier, but I suppose this will look pretty with the flowers on. At the moment it just looks unfinished. Which it is.

Very blurred picture of the detail round the side (I made the pearls too).


And lastly on this very brief post, Saturday Pudding. A very English one today - Rhubarb Fool, with rhubarb fresh from the garden. Even eldest son, who apparently hates rhubarb, guzzled this one down. Yum, yum, yum, for my big fat tum!

Just must quickly add this - since the sadly missed departure of the totally insane Monkee Maker, here is another nutcase blogger - this post made me laugh so much. The woman is crazy!

The thing is, I really do worry about Trashy's sanity!

That cake looks so sophisticated! I am constantly amazed and in awe of your skill!

And as for the pudding - yummy!

Pass the pudding. It looks delicious.

Your cakes are really beautiful. They make me want to learn how to make them.

Oh no Michaela - that cake doesn't look incomplete at all - it is beautiful and will be stunning with the roses. Your detail round the sides is magic!

Along with the others. The cake is beautiful. And those pearls! I am not very fond of rhubarb but I bet that was good. My husband would just love it. Am doing a slow cook beef and ale casserole for supper and the smell in the house is wonderful!
