For a few years, I did an event at my office which I called Cake Thursday wherein every other Thursday I would bring in a cake that I'd baked and invite colleagues to join me for a slice. Eventually I moved the event to Monday's, but the gist was the same. Following are a selection of invitations and their respective cakes from those years.
Invite: Lincoln's Birthday Cake
Cake: Lincoln's favorite cake, with oomph. Two layers of White Almond Cake with a filling of Lemon Mousse. On top is powdered sugar dusted on through a hand-cut stencil.
Invite: Raspberry Cream Cake (photograph is one I shot in Andrew Wyeth's kitchen)
