Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Vanilla flavour all butter sponge cake, filled with chocolate ganache, covered in white sugarpaste. All white rose and lily of the valley flower sprays, made from flower paste, on white flower wires. Flowers lightly dusted with Rose coloured edible powder tint, with crystal bead accents. Cakes finished with white ribbon and diamante trim. Cake toppers made from flower wires, clear beads and swarovski crystals, inserted into posy picks.

What are you most proud of? This was my first and only attempt (so far) at a wedding cake. I t was quite hard work( and dare I say a tad stressful!) , but I was pleased with how it turned out and the bride and groom loved it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time. Prepare as much of the decorations as possible in advance. Try and make sure each cake is completely level - You can use little rolls of sugarpaste tucked under the cake to make it level. One of the tiers of this cake was out a little bit and then this threw all the rest out - it really showed up from the side view :-( If I did this again I would check each tier with a small spirit level (kept just for cake use) When you cover the cakes with sugarpaste, leave them to set before attempting to decorate and stack. Dowel each tier well (except the top one) to give adequate support. All wired decorations should be inserted into posy picks or similar before putting into the cake - never put wires directly into a cake as it causes contamination. Finally, if covering your cake drum fully with sugarpaste, do this well in advance and leave to dry at least 2 days if possible before use. Finish the board off with a matching ribbon,
