{a piece of the past: cake + heirloom lace}


. . . perfectly enchanted by this delicately beautiful cake inspired by embroidered lace strewn with floral appliqués -- cake designer ron ben-israel created 25 different silicone molds, including roses, dahlias, and periwinkles, pressing sugar paste into each before applying them to the fondant to create a masterpiece of sugar and lace . . .

I trust the baker has the real cake sans all this "lovely" in the kitchen at back waiting to be shared???

simone -- think you may have misunderstood -- this cake is "real" and can most definitely be shared -- it's not made of real lace, but of sugar :)

simone -- oh goodness! apologies... difficult to tell sometimes in writing when someone is just kidding + yes, nearly too lovely to eat, although would certainly not pass up a slice :)
