Fabergé eggs are jeweled egg shaped structures, created by the House of Fabergé, in St. Petersburg, Russia. Virtually all were manufactured under the supervision of Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. They were primarily made for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers. I visited the Faberge museum this summer with my dear dear friend who turned 90 this month. So this cake was for her birthday party in memory of a fabulous visit to St Petersburg. It was a huge cake that weighed at least 30 pounds. It took me close to 40 hours to make it. The birthday girl loved it and bragged to her friends about me as the cake artist. God Bless you dear friend.
The bottom cushion was a carrot nut cake with cream cheese filling and the top two layers were almond with marzipan cannoli filling.
