Aside from the very popular, however infamous quote that forms the title of this post, when I think about cake there is yet another quote which comes to mind: Eddie Izzard’s Cake or Death? Easiest question in the world because honestly you could pair cake with anything else in the world, including macarons and cupcakes, and you still get the same heartfelt response: CAKE!
So when my parents 26 wedding anniversary came around there was no question in my mind regarding what I will surprise them with. I spent an entire day and a good chunk of the night to pull off 26 gumpaste roses which I used for decoration of this Walnut Cake with Vanilla and Crunchy Caramel Cream. I admit I was responsible solely for the decoration bit, as my mom took on the task of actually making the cake. A long and meticulous task so let me know if you need the recipe and I’ll see what I can do :)In the mean time, I hope you enjoy the visual stimuli and allow me to wish my parents a Happy Anniversary and Long Marriage! xx
