Quasia's Wedding Cake

Today, we had another wedding at the dergah. (We are really getting used to this now.) You can see the bride posing with some of the dergah kids and her wedding cake in the above picture. It was another sunny and beautiful day, but this time it was much hotter than last Sunday. Fortunately, the mousseline is a sturdy frosting that can withstand heat quite well, so we did not have to worry about the cake melting away before our very eyes. This 4-tier white butter cake (13", 10", 7" and 4") was decorated festively with colorful roses and piped swags. It had a lemon curd mousseline buttercream inside and plain mousseline outside. It was served with Rose's strawberry sauce on the side--a combination that looked and tasted very good.
