Cake Note 63: "The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds - they mature slowly. ~Peter De Vries"

40 years to be precise! This cake is for a friend of mine, celebrating her Ruby wedding anniversary - but she didn't want roses and ribbons, oh no. She wanted the cake to represent her life with her husband. Over the years they have bought Gites in Brittany, and an apartment near Salzburg  - these were the things she wanted on her cake. PLUS...her husband skiing, maps of her special places and maybe her, sitting outside her Gites with a G&T! Oh, and trees please........

Good job I'm fond of her :)

The cake is a 10 inch fruit covered with sugarpaste. The houses and the ski slope are made of rice crispy treats , the snow is that good ole standby, Royal icing and the models made out of modelling paste - the maps and the inscription are edible images, as is the gin bottle :)

Thanks for looking.
