I recently had the priviledge of baking a cake for a very distinguished lady. She is a lady in every sense of the word, and when her daughter-in-law asked me to bake her 80th birthday cake, I was thrilled. And I knew that it had to be a beautifully simple, but classy cake.
This is the result. Vanilla sponge with caramel filling. A sugarpaste coating and then a single ivory sugarpaste rose, with a trail of ivory dragees. And a no 80 adorning the front of the cake.
So simple, yet oh so elegant.
