Piano Recital

My daughter’s piano recital…. I can’t just bring a plain cake, right? Here’s what I came up with…recital09-2¬†Erin, my fantastic assistant and resident piano player, made the piano bench, the keyboard, and piped the Steinway logo. The recital was held at the Steinway Piano Gallery.recital09-1

I was concerned about holding up the top, but my husband, Ruel, came up with a great idea using hidden supports (and a couple of visible ones) and it worked great. Thanks! And thanks to Chelsea Payne, Erin’s amazing piano teacher!

The “cake” is actually a brownie. Both the base and the piano itself (and the bench) are fashioned out of brownies. Big ones! Two layers with buttercream filling.
