I’m getting a bit of a reputation for butterflies… these are to celebrate a Ruby Wedding Anniversary. This is a large, square lemon madeira cake. The three dimensional butterflies and those embossed and painted onto the cake make a swarm fluttering around the ’40’.
There were a large number of guests at the celebration, so I also provided a large chocolate ‘kitchen’ cake (a cake which is iced but undecorated) to ensure everyone was well fed. This is a good alternative to large cakes or tiered cakes.
