My lemon tart turned out perfect!

The sweet shortcrust pastry was not too thick, not too thin and the lemon filling complimented the pastry...it went down a treat...and I gave mum a big slice to take home

I have to confess, I was going to make my own gumpaste flowers but decided not to. So it's going to be fairly plain with some store bought gumpaste flowers!

Oh no, Bakechef! You slacker, you! As if you have nothing else to do.

It will be absolutely gorgeous, can't wait to see it! Yeah, plain. Right.

I've decided to do a smallish 3 tier with 2 chocolate 9" satellite cakes. This should more than enough.
At least you're checking your sizes a few WEEKS before. Smart! Our Cake Lady called me two days before our wedding to let me know her scallop-edged pans made enough cake for only 90 cuts, not the 150 we requested - AND, might I add, paid for! I was hysterical. Called Himself in a panic. He's very analytic and said "well can she make an extra pan's worth for 60 and hide it in the kitchen?" Bingo!

So bakechef, are you making the cake at home and then transporting it to Maine or are you going to make it up there? Either way, we all want to see it.

BTW, what is the date of the wedding? This is like waiting for the overdue baby to arrive. We are all waiting.
