Just to say thank you to everybody, who came yesterday to taste the trial wedding cake .

I hope that everyone enjoyed their afternoon with a slice or two ( or four 😮 )

Here are a few shots of making the 5 tier wedding cake.  By the way, it took 3 days to make the sugar decorations and the bottom layer (only because I was trying to find the best way of doing it and it had to be redone)

The rest of the cake (4 tiers of different flavours)  was done in 3 days.

No fondant or marzipan covering, the cakes are covered with thin layer of Swiss meringue buttercream of different flavour.

Here it is!

It’s been a while since my last post. It’s not because Galya’s kitchen was closed , in fact it was and is very much open.

The summer has gone and now we are not as busy at La Croix du Reh (our B&B) as we were then. But there is a lot going on in Galya’s kitchen.

They say that one of the biggest and most stressful events in a life is Wedding. Correct! I can confirm that and many people will agree. My daughter is getting married and the date is rapidly approaching.

And guess what? I have taken a responsibility for MAKING ( yes, making!) the wedding cake.

At first we might think that there is nothing unusual and there are many people nowadays making HOME MADE wedding cakes for their daughters, sons, nieces etc…

But how many people can say that they made a wedding cake for 150 people?

This is the reason why Galya’s kitchen was quiet for a while. I’ve been doing a lot of research and practising making cakes and decorations.

This coming Sunday the 30 of October there will be my first attempt to put together FULL SIZE 4 TIER CAKE for 150 people.

And anyone who wants to come and taste it is welcome !

(I know, I know, it’s a short notice. But running B&B  is full of surprises such as last minute reservations, which  can interrupt the preparations.)

Nevertheless, the date is set.

 

The Wedding cake tasting party is on :

Sunday the 30th of October

from 14.00 to 16.00 hrs.

See you there!

This time it is a home recipe and I call it Galya’s Rafaello cake. That’s right, it tastes exatcly like Rafaello chocolates .
