Cake it till you make it

Several out-of-town guests went blue in the face when they saw my faux wedding cake

It’s pretty laughable when you think about it – us “cutting” into a comically large and faux cake in front of our family and friends, four hands clasped on a gigantic knife with a fussy bow hanging off its handle. What’s that supposed to symbolise? A lifetime of fondant-encrusted fakery together?

I'VE NEVER been a fan of angmoh-style cakes; I much prefer local, soupy desserts such as ice kacang, cheng tng, orh nee, tau suan, pulut hitam... I could truly go on forever.

So it didn't matter when our wedding venue told us they only provide dummy wedding cakes - ours was a mammoth five...
