My autumn jacket has made its first appearance.
Summer is taking its last few breaths and soon it will be a distant memory. The time for apple picking, spiced lattes, caramel cake and pumpkin cookies is rapidly approaching....exciting times indeed. With new boots waiting to be worn and scarves at the ready, I'm all for the change.
I don't know about you, but it feels like my summer just flew by. My last two weeks in Istanbul were just fantastic though. Nothing but sun, beach, sights and lots of reading. In fact, I don't think I brought enough books (time to invest in an e-reader?). I'm so happy to be back though and I'm looking forward to stepping on crunchy leaves....yet, not so much ready for the snow. Sigh, if only autumn could last longer. It always seems to be over too quickly.
This wedding cake reminds me of a winter wonderland, all white with hints of silver and shine. I loved making the different types of flowers. I kept the palette all white because the bride wanted a classic, yet elegant cake. I think this hit the mark quite well. I find that my skills are improving more and more each time I design a cake.
I hope you are enjoying my designs. Comments and suggestions are always welcome for design ideas.
I'll be back with some new recipes soon! For now, I'm just going to enjoy these last few days of heat with some nummy frozen yogurt. With mini m&m's. Because I can.
