Wedding cake bakers

I've been to Auckland for my nephew's wedding (you can see a photo of the happy couple here).. One of the many nice things about it was the cake. In this picture it's minus its bottom layer - I couldn't get a good shot of it before.

What I liked was the way it kept up the family tradition, only with a nice modern twist. Our mother made the cakes for my wedding (the first one!) and for my sister's wedding. But it was my brother-in-law who made the cake for his son's wedding. He's always made the family Christmas cake, too.
         My nephew takes after his father - he's an excellent cook, and so is his wife. They go in for mini-Master Chef contests at their place. I couldn't help thinking how nice it would be if, in the years ahead, he made the cake for the wedding of his son, or daughter.

My lovely mum made our wedding cake. It made the cake very special for me.
