Our church, Holy Trinity Cathedral in San Francisco, celebrated our priest's forty years of service with a little celebration at the beginning of October. This cake, commemorating the event, was designed for both Fr. John Takahashi and his wife, who together have dedicated the majority of their lives to serving the church. One cake was chocolate and the other vanilla, both filled with strawberries and cream. It was iced with vanilla buttercream and topped with fresh flowers and a marshmallow fondant "40" dusted with gold lusterdust.
Cake: 6/10" squares
