Isn’t life too short we hear you say? Why not simply bake a slab-cake and divide it up into little squares?
Actually, there are good reasons
for going to the trouble of baking individual cakes, particularly in the case of wedding gift cakes:
Firstly, a cut-slice can never
reproduce the variety of textures found in an individually baked cake.
But more importantly, any dried
fruit which is sliced-through when the cake is cut will eventually leach fruit-acids into the icing and stain it: Not what
you need after spending hours lovingly decorating dozens of cakes for that special day!
