I still can recall the first time I saw Judy Garland and Fred Astaire dancing and singing to classics like “We’re a Couple Swells”, “Drum Crazy”, and of course “Easter Parade”.

This was my practice session for the top tier of the Kenyan Roses Wedding cake. The bride and groom asked for the top tier to be a 6” round Battenberg. I made this tester cake using a guide I found on www.cookgoodfood.com. This was made using two pink 7” and two plain 7” sandwich cakes.
