Here is Katia’s description of this Fabulous cake:
I chose the oriental music because I’m fascinated by their philosophy of life, I love the beauty of Japanese music and scenery in the dances. The Lotus flower has a strong spiritual significance for Eastern because of its particularity to be rooted in the mud, to lie on the surface of stagnant water coming out of pristine and beautiful them: for this is the symbol of those who live in the world without being contaminated. The folding fan was invented by the Japanese in the seventh century, Silk fans also called Gongshan (fans of the Court). They were hand-painted and adorned with precious stones with an ivory handle.
