Talking Easter Cake! - April 15th 2017, 12:28 PM

Everyone knows I love sharing my latest baking escapades on here.

So, following tradition on special occasions, I made an Easter cake yesterday.
My whole family is Catholic so I want to respect my upbringing as well as making something super tasty, so I came up with the 'Both Sides of Easter' cake:




So one side is all pretty with eggs and flowers and is designed to be like a bird's nest. So cheerful and springtime and lovely.
The other side represents the crown of thorns and is deliberately very plain and serious. 'It is finished' are noted as being Jesus' last words in one of the gospels describing the Passion.

The cake itself is ginger, and the nest/thorns are orange Matchmakers. It's very simple but it's worked out pretty well.


Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Definitely like the poetic symbolism of the cake. It looks delicious but I wouldn't want to eat it.

It's a work of art.

This looks so good! I love the decorations and all! Looks yummy


THE POINT OF SINGULARITY IS NOTHING AS NOTHING BEGAN EVERYTHING
PULSING IN THE EXPAND CONSUME WITHOUT BARRIER OR BORDER
IT IS DARK BECAUSE IT IS THE DARKNESS IT IS OVER BECAUSE IT IS THE END
THERE IS NO SENTRY BECAUSE NONE DARE APPROACH
IT HAS NEVER BEEN AND IT IS ALL THAT EVER WAS
AT THE CENTER YOU DO NOT FIND THE ANSWER
YOU DO NOT FIND YOURSELF THERE IS NO CENTER AND THERE IS NO YOU THERE IS ONLY MADNESS
WE ARE ALL HERE NOW.
WE ARE ALL HERE.
WE ARE.

Both the cake itself and its symbolism is beautiful. Wonderful job, Louise! I hope you continue making themed cakes and other desserts.

I know you sent me pics of this, but I just wanted to say that it looks DELISH.

When can I expect mine in the mail?

Ooh nice cake!
And interesting references and symbolism


Komorebi
This is the word the Japanese have for when sunlight filters through the trees - the interplay between the light and the leaves.

Sisu is extraordinary courage and determination in the face of adversity. Its about not seeing a silver lining in the clouds, and yet jumping into the storm anyways.

wow is so realistic that everything on it seems just like the actual thing would. Reminds me of a cake I had recently which had flowers and leaves on (all eatable).
