English Garden Cake @ The FCI

At The French Culinary Institute, the pastry level one students created an elaborate faux wedding from which pastry level two students would create a wedding cake. The theme? An English/Japanese Garden Wedding. The cake was a classic, french Genoise Cake soaked with a Sake Simple Syrup and a Fruity Plum Filling.

The English-Japanese Garden Wedding Cake was complete with butterflies, roses, tulips and even a bumble bee. Also, there were Japanese characters all around.

Once finished, the cake took on a life of its own and was voted best in class. Awesome!
