Imogen and Chris’s Wedding Cake

I can’t take credit for the cake (the three-tiered sacher torte of your dreams) or the absolutely stunning wedding (a weekend of perfection, all coordinated by the bride herself), or the genteel hospitality proferred to a couple of Yanks overseas in Great Britain, but the night before the wedding, Imogen allowed me to do a little chocolate ganache work on the icing of the cake, and the great-delegator she is, Imogen asked me and David to be the cake point-people on the big day.  Which meant I got to re-glaze the entire cake, assemble the tiers, and then decorate according to her specificaltions with giant, beautiful peony blooms.  How classy is this cake?  Only half as classy as the bride and chef herself.  The only thing David and I can take credit for is the use of the leaves around the cake and the actual labor.  Oh, and eating far more than our fair share.  I can own that.
