Cake of the Week #40 – Casanova Memorial Cakes!

Yes, we are quite far from Valentines day love ins, but we’re also on the cusp of wedding season. As sickly sweet as it is, we’ve decided to embrace love cakes this week, in honor of Giacomo Casanova, the legendary Italian stallion who died on this day in 1798.

It’s also a great excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the blog (Tennant played Casanova in a BBC drama three parter recently) and Kate is always looking for an excuse to put a picture of David Tennant on the Blog. Sigh.

But now to tastier things – cakes! Awesome cupcake with a modern spin – everyone loves cupcakes.

If you like your cakes masculine and subtle, this one is not for you…

 Bet it’s still yum though. Ahhhhhhhhh, and lastly, heart shaped fruit!

Not too many pics this week, because only so much sickening affection can be tolerated in conjunction with sickening amounts of fondant. We shall be back to our usual quirkiness next week, with a healthy dose of scepticism to even this out.
