This vintage Wedding cake was designed for a unique vintage themed Wedding at Papplewick Pumping Station, Nottinghamshire. The blue-green Royal icing textured surface, with the silver shimmer all over, enriched the colours of the fresh flower garlands adorning it.

I was really excited about creating a cake for the Wedding Cake competition at Cake International Exhibition at the NEC this month as it was the first time I have entered it. My hard work paid off as I received a Silver Award – a fantastic result.

I decided on a theme of cherubs and hearts for my entry. I loved creating these cute little cherubs with their tiny toes and hands.

They were draped in robes made from icing and tiny flowers were cut in half and attached to their shoulders then brushed with gold.

Two thirds of the cake was highly decorated with the hearts and cherubs but the other third was more simple and gently textured so the overall effect was dynamic in decor and contrast.

The more simple side used a mixture of techniques involving piping, edible lace and painted relief background.

The cake was highlighted with gold columns for the cherubs paradise, delicate roses and topped with 2 cherubs holding edible lace covered hearts.

I received a birthday present earlier this year and the wrapping paper gave me an idea to decorate a cake which was inspired by the colours and shapes.

There are a variety of techniques involved in creating this cake. Firstly I sprayed aqua and white over the torquoise icing to give it different textures.

Then I applied coloured royal icing using a paintbrush. Followed by piping white flowers on it.

It was then finished off with gold and pearlescent spray.

This technique can be used in a variety of different ways, so if you’d like me to decorate a similar cake as a centre piece for your special occasion then please feel free to contact me for a quote.
