Story of a Wedding Cake

Mar 2, 2015

A lot happens in Lisa Raffael's cake shop. You might see a couple nervously deciding between red velvet and oreo cookie cream wedding cake; Or Lisa, working late into the night on a complex design of Fenway Park crafted out of sugar.

Lisa has baked for countless Cape Cod weddings. Anna Stitt went to visit Raffael in her shop to find out just what goes on behind the scenes of those perfect plastic-looking wedding cakes and what's it like for an artist to have their work disappear almost immediately?

You can see more photos of cakes at Lisa's website.

 This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Anna Stitt was a graduate of the Fall 2014 class.   You can find out more about that program at Transom.org
