  1. that would make an awesome wedding cake! For our wedding we did cupcakes (long before they became popular) and one smallish cake just for the cutting 🙂

    1. The cupcakes are always a winner, most of the weddings we do go that route now. I would love to have different mille feuilles as well as a nice large one for the cutting of the cake. My first ideas was layers or different cheeses and fresh fruit and crackers, but concerned about how many people might not share my love for cheese!

    1. Not that one, but we make mill feuile a lot in the kitchen! Yeah the cheese thing is old now, need something more exciting!
