Black and White Stripe Cake

Black and white statement Cake

This cake reminds me of the dress that Audrey Hepburn wore to the Royal Ascot horse races in the movie, “My Fair Lady.” She was simply lovely, and this cake is too. We love the play on black and white, the use of stripes on the top tier of the cake and on the ribbon at the bottom, and the damask filigree in the middle cake subtly mirrored by a touch of lace at the bottom layer. When the hubby feeds your cake and is quite slow at it, just refrain from saying (as Eliza Doolittle did), “Move your bloody arse!”
