Traditional wedding cake made with Odense marzipan or almond paste. For Birthday parties or other big gatherings, it is shaped as a cornucopia, and filled with chocolate. Contact me for further information. Make it early, and freeze without the icing before assembly, it gets even better that way. The bride and groom, gets the top ring, and the bridal figurine, and share it, then guest break pieces of, as it is passed from coffee-table to coffee-table. Prep time does not include resting time or icing or decorating time.
