Birthday Cake from Armenia
I`ve been posting a few items from my trip to Armenia that I took recently. I was there for two week chaperoning the kids from the youth group I mentor.
We actually celebrated a few birthdays while we were there, and coincidentally, our last night coincided with one of the other chaperone`s birthday.
In order to celebrate our last night, and her birthday, we decided to order a cake. I happen to know an artist who lives in Armenia and his wife is also a fantastic baker. They had made a wonderful cake for my cousin when he was living in Armenia, so I thought it would be a great idea to order one from her.
Her husband actually helps her decorate her cakes, and they even resemble his paintings. They make the cakes according to the number of people, and it was filled with fresh fruit and crema.
The design on top is painted with edible paints, and the little 3d items in the front are made with fondant.
The shapes along the side resemble very classic Armenian decor - you can see that they resemble the theme on the tablecloth :).
The picture painted on top is of historic Mt. Ararat. Mt. Ararat is said to be where Noah`s Ark landed after the flood, and is the most famous mountain in historic Armenia. After the Armenian Genocide of 1915, it now resides within Turkish borders, but is a huge symbol of importance to Armenians, and you can see it from within Armenian borders.
Even though I dont eat desserts, and avoid processed sugars, I did have a little piece with some of the fruit filling. It was just as delicious as it was pretty!
