I pulled out the old photo albums the other day and came across a zillion cakes I'd done over the past 20 or so years. Here's one that I just loved. I made it for my friends Nancy and John who were married in Ithaca, NY in July, 1998. I wrapped up the cake and drove it there, about a 5 hour drive. When I got to customs, the guy asked me a few questions, the last of which was, "So what are you bringing to the wedding?" and my response was (pointing to the back seat), "The cake!" He chuckled and said, "Have fun." And I did!
