You just gotta love Martha Stewart. I came across this photo on Pinterest and had to post it. I’m just loving the intricate design of the breadfruit(ulu) pattern on the cake . The meaning of the design is abundance in love, happiness and money.
‘Ulu is associated with many Hawaiian myths and legends.Legend traces its origin to a time of famine when Ku, the god of building and war, buried himself in the earth near his home. He later turned into an `ulu tree so that his wife and children would not starve. Ku had told his wife that a fruit shaped like a man’s head would spring from his body. “My body will be the trunk and branches; my hands will be the leaves; the heart, core, inside the fruit will be my tongue. Roast the fruit, soak it, beat off the skin, eat some yourself, and feed the children.
