Romeo and Juliet would be another good cake idea, but here is Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy on this occasion. An 8″ square chocolate swirl cake, trimmed to create a book shape and covered in sugarpaste accordingly.
The figures are made in advance to allow for drying time.
The tricky thing here is to resist embellishing the scene with additional props. As the great designer Laura Ashley used to say,’ stop before you think you are finished!’
Happy Birthday G. X
