The final celebration for my brother and s-i-l's wedding was the Shabbat lunch at my sister's for the last round of Sheva Brachot (see yesterday's post). After a delicious hors d'ouvres and main course, the centre piece on the dessert table was a wedding cake made and decorated by DD. Well DD helped make the cake and was then guided in the decorating. Let me explain.
MishCakes of Mill Hill, NW7 is owned and run by my sister's friend Michelle Lipowicz. We've enjoyed Michelle's cakes at almost every party my sister has made. So a fancy cake was ordered for the Sheva Brachot and DD was invited to help make and decorate it.
I say, 'invited' but actually I don't know what the arrangements were. Looking at MishCakes' facebook page, I see that Michelle runs workshops for teenagers so I'm not sure if my sister paid for a workshop or if Michelle was just being kind. All I know is, Grandma dropped DD off at Michelle's house and a couple of hours later I received these fabulous photos.
DD absolutely loved it. She was thrilled to have decorated such a sophisticated cake and was very proud when she was asked to carry it in and present it to the bride and groom as we served dessert.
And I schepped naches (kvelled with pride) when Michelle told me that DD is very talented, she's a quick learner and lots of fun to work with.
