The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

Sweet union

September 7th, 2008  |  Published in Uncategorized

Yesterday, I went to a lovely wedding – the kind that makes your heart buzz and dart like a dragonfly.

There were hugs aplenty, dancing and a lot of emotional sniffling (damn witty and beautiful speeches!)

And of course, there was wedding cake.

This one was made by the amazing Tabitha: 11 cakes baked over two days on an ordinary oven (she took annual leave to complete the batch). They were stored in pizza boxes before the big day and involved more than two kilograms of melted chocolate (and I’m sure, a hell of a lot of marathon stirring – she’s bound to have some impressively buffed arm muscles as a result).

And it was so good I had to have more than the amount I originally rationed for myself (which really isn’t so dragonfly-like, in the end).


Your Comments



Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
