A Capital Opera Cake

To celebrate its 21st birthday in February, book group Wellington 102 enjoyed a very special layer cake.

Called an "opera" cake, it featured miniature chocolate books made by a culinary student who is living with the convenor while studying. 

Convenor Megan Bibby wrote in with the story:

"It has been a long held tradition for us to have supper after our book discussion. Fortuitously, we currently have a student living with us for six months, studying at the Cordon Bleu Institute in Wellington. It was Panadda's idea to create a very special cake for us. Her wonderful creation ... includes a table with chocolate books (with writing inside!) and our group number on the cake too!"

"It was as delicious as it looked." 

Megan says the photo below, of most of the group and including Panadda (at centre, with arms folded), is the first ever taken of the group together.

Happy 21st Wellington 102.

 

Members (L to R): Pip Cresswell, Marilyn Wilde, Jenny Reid, Jan Webster, Panadda Vorasinsiri, Steph Van Dyk, Megan Biddy, Cheryl Pow and Donna Hickey. Absent: Jennie Kennerley and Lyn Phillips.
