C is for cherry cake!

I saw this cake in the Martha Stewart magazine once and thought it was the most beautiful cake I had

 ever seen. And, I still do,


If I were having a wedding or anniversary cake, this is what it would look like. 

The cherries and leaves are made of marzipan.  I can't even begin to imagine the skill that goes into making these beautiful little pieces of fruit. Or being able to apply a layer of fondant so smoothly. (Hah! I can't even make a cake from a boxed mix!!)

My future DIL makes the most delicious and beautiful cakes.  One that she makes is a blackberry jam cake.  I am hoping that part of their wedding cake will include this delicious choice.  I know that he rmom and her grandmother both had that as part of their wedding cakes.  I think it would be so lovely for S and E to continue to tradition!

Obviously, the next year is filled with wedding talk, thoughts, choices, decisions.  So, I think that perhaps there may be many wedding themed choices for Alphabe-Thursday!
