Her class was fabulous and I learned a great deal about wedding cake design in the English tradition. She also had great tips about making sure everyone signs off when you deliver the cake. The wedding planner, the bride, the event planner etc. Her story about the Queen Mother's Birthday Cake was also funny after the fact, since she broke down in her van on the way to deliver the cake. The Army came to get her on the highway with a police escort after she called the palace to make sure the Queen Mum's Birthday Cake was there on schedule!
