At the end of March, we had the pleasure of attending the ordination of our own Curate, Alain into the Priesthood. Gathered at the down town Cathedral, with heaps of clergy all dressed in their garb, followed up with thousands of little sandwiches and cakes, we welcomed four new Priests. The following Sunday at our own church, we celebrated in the most official way by having not one cake but two! I decorated this one (a fellow parishioner baked the cake), but unbeknownst to me someone else was making one as well.... ah well, you can never have too much cake!
Last time she was in England, my Mother brought me back some special sheets to add pattern to fondant and I thought they'd add the perfect amount of texture to the stole on the cake.
