Type of item: Food
Style: Traditional, Classic
Cakes are covered in sugarpaste and most of the detail is piped in Royal Icing. This is a dummy for a wedding show, but I would love to have the real cake royal iced as well for a truly vintage look and taste. heart is created by using a Springerly Mold/Mould sold by House on The Hill.
What was your inspiration?
I LOVE traditional looking, vintage cakes. Wanted to practise my piping techniques, so chose a different border style for each tier and piped away. More practise needed, but liked the outcome nevertheless.
What are you most proud of?
Practise makes perfect. I'm no way near perfect, but better than the time before.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Ceri Griffiths has released a couple of good books on borders. I also invested a small fortune on Joseph Lambeth's book, I wouldn't recommend this personally unless you're obsessed with Royal Icing and determined to master this.
