This is personally one of my favorite cakes, most of all because of the message it brings--"He is risen!", Christ arose from the grave! I wanted to do something other than bunnies and baskets for Easter and I had played with the idea of this cake but was not really sure if I could pull it off. After I finally decided to go for it, I did a sketch and made the crosses ahead of time. Then the Saturday before, a friend of mine came over and helped me and gave valuable insight as it all came together--Thanks Kristin! :)
I was so thrilled to see the finished product (especially after the some-what confusing carving process), and how realistic the crosses and rocks looked--all it needed was a light inside the tomb! I truly hope the Lord was pleased.
