Dickens by Candlelight cake
During act 2 I photographed the cake, using the materials that were being used on the foyer tables. I do admit to having had much grander plans for the design of the cake, but as time went on and I realised how overworked I was, the design got simpler and simpler. In the end it was probably a good thing, as there is definitely something to be said for simple elegance. The cake ended up just as I had imagined it would, and Abigail was delighted.
However, what put the biggest smile on my face was the fact that the cake was big enough to feed 50 people at least, yet not a crumb was left after only 17 people had had their fill. I guess they like my carrot cake!!!! To me that is the biggest complement of all.
