Earlier in this thread I mentioned a cake we did in the Lambeth class taught by Edith Gates in 1964. It was a cake made with 3,000 apple blossoms made petal by petal with a #101s rose tip. I have found the old photo and posted it in the gallery here.

I also found my wedding cake photo but we are in it and since we aren't allowed to post photos of people I won't try and post it. The detail of the Lambeth work doesn't show well in the snapshot anyway.

Thanks everyone. I loved learning that technique, I think it is beautiful. But todays cakes are beautiful in their own way and I like learning new things. Although the Peter Allen song "Everything old is new again" is so true, as I see Lambeth is a subject of interest and seems to be making a comeback. I know someone in San Diego is teaching and also Wilton in Chicago.

I will be 68 this year, if I don't pass this stuff on now while I'm here, what will we do with it when I am gone? I understand Frances Kuyper has a cake museum in California, maybe I should donate some of these old photos and books.

You would have to beat my 14 year old granson Dominic to them. He wants to go to California Culinary Academy in San Francsico after graduation, he wants to be a pastry chef. He will get all of my cookbooks, but probably some of the cake books as well as the pedestal cake plate collection.

Good idea, we like to hang out together but as he gets older it is harder to find ways of entertaining him. We have worked on gumpaste items together, he helped make the seashells for his sisters wedding cake. Last year he called and asked what I would like for my birthday. I suggested he make a cake or brownies, he elected to make brownies and they were decorated with pink icing piping and a pink ribbon to "Worlds Best grandma" but the best part was the numeral candles he added, they made me three years younger than my actual age. icon_lol.gif
