My sister Honor makes cakes for people. This is a cake that she made for my our dad to serve when he had his coworkers (teachers) over for dinner. Note the apple theme. Teachers, apples.. get it? In any case it was amazing. It was a lemon cake with blackberry preserves, butter-cream, royal icing flowers and hand-sculpted marzipan apples which she stayed up until all hours making. It blew everyone's mind and elevated Honor to the coveted position of my parents' favorite child. If you would like to order one and you live in Northern California, let me know and I'll pass your info. to her.
