Unfortunately I cannot take any credit for the information being relayed in today's post. The following gems were brought to my attention by my good friend Lauren. Check out her inspiring blog Lamb Likes.
Do you know why wedding cakes are traditionally made in a tiered formation? The inspiration is said to be the steeple of St. Bride’s church in London’s Fleet Street. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren in 1672, the steeple has a distinctive ‘step’ pattern that really does look like a modern day wedding cake!
Lauren is in the business of architecture and often has interesting anecdotes to do with buildings. The conversation turned from wedding cakes to cakes in general whereupon Lauren revealed that as part of a work event she will be commissioning this artist to construct two architecturally pertinent buildings out of cake! This is some next level sugarcraft and highly recommend you take a look at Michelle’s website Michelle Sugar Art..
Final word on cakes for today - are you familiar with the work of Peggy Porschen? Her shop (and in fact her life) is the stuff dreams are made of. Cake dreams. All the above photos of cakes are from her current collection!
