I finally finished the The Wedding Cake Book, cover to cover. Well, I had stopped reading it, except as a reference, once I'd settled on a couple recipes, but now I've even gotten through the appendices. Only a zillion more books to go! For my birthday, I received copies of The Pie and Pastry Bible and Room for Dessert, which led me to find David Lebovitz's web site, which led me to discovery the existence of his Paris Bakery and Chocolate Day Tour. Now that's a reason to travel. Seriously, how delicious and informative would that be? Answer: very!
