Last weekend I also got to make a cake for a mama to be. We had a party for her draped in bunting, sipping warm teas, and guessing how big her belly was. It was a chill, intimate baby shower just like the mama. The cake was a cake meant to be enjoyed with tea. It was a dense almond cake with a layer of thinly rolled marzipan in between the layers which was then slathered high in mascarpone frosting. It was so scrumptious. The frosting was light and airy, not too sweet or sugary. The tart burst of the blackberries made it a perfect combo.
