Copy Cat!

We are sometimes asked to copy a cake found in a magazine. Sometimes, as in the case of this particular design it's lots of fun, challenging and a most definite learning curve.  This cake was designed by New York designer Ron Ben Israel (who designed Carrie's wedding cake in Sex In The City) and was featured in a Martha Stewart Weddings magazine (pictured below, right).
When Ellen came to see me and asked me to replicate this cake I was sincerely honoured to do so.  This design matched perfectly Ellen's theme and colour scheme of ivory and white.
I was delighted to receive an e-mail from Ellen on Sunday morning:
"Hi Lynne,
This is just a quick informal note to say thank you sooooooo much for the cake.  It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!  You did an amazing job - we both loved it.  There were many, many compliments on it, both about how it looked and tasted!!  I am so glad you were able to do it and re-create the design.  It was perfect!!!  
Thank you so much,       Ellen" 

The pleasure was all ours!
