A few weeks back , I spent the day with her as this is part of my series "behind the scene".
I had no idea it took so long to make a weeding cake. It is a 4-day process.
day-1 :bake the cake and let it cool-
day -2: make filling and put the layers together
day-3: do the frosting and put the cake together
day 4- decorate and deliver

I learned a few things about making a cake you have to be very very patient and precise.

Unfortunately,  I could not photograph the delivery part as I had a wedding that weekend. But here is one of my favorite cakes, decorated that Rachel did for Alexandra and Jeremy over a year ago.

Rachel uses local ingredients and whenever possible organic products. She also makes vegan cakes. I tried the chocolate one....yummm.
