I want to make something special for my parents' 30th anniversary and the fact that it was gonna coincide with their holidays here in Ireland made things easier.
I had help from a friend, Betty, who is as well a professional baker, specialized in beautiful celebration cakes : wedding, engagement, etc... Despite having a broken hand, she helped me make the most beautiful cake for my parents' anniversary! It wasn't a too complicated cake by all means, but because it was my first one, it still took me 4 hours to decorate it only! I was exhausted by the end of it, but boy was I happy! And the result was worth the effort.
