This month me and my significant other celebrate our first wedding anniversary and the date could not pass without a cake!
As you can see, the amount of flowers will be challenging, but, well, it is a special occasion! On the next days I’ll be posting my progress.
- 2 tiers (6 in and 8 in)
- Orchids (white/yellow/dark red)
- Wild roses (white/yellow)
- Country flowers (white/yellow)
- Leaves (light green/pearl dust)
- Cake topper: quilling silhouette
- Quilt pattern
- Sugar Pearls
If you have a sweet tooth, these beauties are definitely for you.
A tradition in Brazil, borrowed from Portugal, the “bem casados” (happily marrieds, or, for me, happily ever afters) are a gift the newly weds give to their beloved guests for having attended the ceremony.
Despite the variations that are popping up (brownies and gingerbread based; with chocolate, lime, pistachio and pecan fillings) they normally consist of two small circle of sponge cake attached by a decadent dulce de leche filling and coated with sugar. They are fluffy, moist, sweet (have I mentioned sweet? I think I need to emphasize it… ;)) and a party in your mouth. I could risk saying they are the macaroons of cakes, but without all the crumbling.
I’ll be posting some recipes soon and this is one that you should surely try.
