I was very excited to have the opportunity to work with Thetis of Little Sooti on this wedding in February. I’ve long admired her work and its always a joy to collaborate with a talented stylist on a gorgeous event.
The evil eye is a look that is believed by many cultures to be able to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed for reasons of envy or dislike.The term also refers to the power attributed to certain persons of inflicting injury or bad luck by such an envious or ill-wishing look.
The ‘mati’ or ‘eye’ is a charm worn to protect against such ill projections and is widely regarded on the Greek culture as protection against many an affliction!
These charms are usually made of glass – hence the high gloss finish to this cake! White chocolate mud cake filled with a lemon scented white chocolate ganache.
3D novelty cakes are challenging and so, so much fun to make. When asked to replicate a musician’s much loved lute, my initial reaction was ‘Yay!’ but then closer to crunch time of actually creating it I was thinking “How??” !! Too late for that now isn’t it!
