Christian Dell (1893 – 1974) is a German designer very well associated with the 1930 Bauhaus style.
When my wife asked me, when the cake arrived to the table, if I liked the cake… I casually answered “yes darling”, thinking “yes I like it, we chose it together!”
2 minutes later, same question… same answer… humm, this cake is going to be sooo good.
Few minutes later I over-heard the 2 words “chocolate” (hummm) and “lamp” (hoooo).
My (clever) daughter had told my (beautiful) mother that she noticed the accordion lamp made of chocolate.
I went back to my wife and asked her if she was behind this. It was so thoughtful of her and was sorry, and ashamed, that I hadn’t noticed the lamps before.
I love you Emma, for this and for everything else.
I love you Christian Dell, for making my wedding cake.
