In my line of work I meet all kinds of couples who are about to embark on a new life together, and believe me, I’ve seen some diverse and unlikely pairs- matches that my great-grandmother would never have conceived of, including my own. Background, mother tongue, age, nationality- here in the East Village, it’s been the rare wedding cake I’ve made for a couple that shares even one of these characteristics among them, and it thrills me to see what new cultural mixes are being whipped up right before my very eyes.
I baked a 7” square red velvet cake and I filled it and finished the sides with buttercream. I rolled out a piece of white fondant and covered the cake, then decorated with the black flowers to match the cupcakes.
