40 years and counting…..

Last year my aunt asked me to make a cake for her  40th Wedding Anniversary. I wanted to do something special for them so I went back to their early days. They met while Eileen was still training as a nurse and Steve was in the navy.

My inspiration was the famous photograph ” The Kiss ” taken in Times Square on VJ Day in 1945. Although I had used sugar paste icing to make flowers before my skills just yet weren’t up to a true re-creation….however I am still very proud of the cake I created. The bottom layer madeira and the top a rich chocolate cake

Mmmm yes, if you look closely you may see a salt and pepper shaker holding up the couple but these are the things that make an occasion more memorable!!
