White rose wedding cake
White/ ivory cakes are not really my thing as I love a little bit of colour on a cake if nothing else. At wedding fairs I am often asked if I make "white" cakes so here was my homage to a white cake.
It was really hard to design as I wanted to put bits of colour here and there, also there are some great wedding cake designers who specialise in tall Victorian cakes and I was very conscious of not copying anything they had done.
I based this design on Victorian style wedding cakes with piping and delicate detailing. I used royal icing piping for the boarders and for the swags on the top and second tier. To create the lace effect I used Claire Bowman Cake Lace and decorated the other tiers with moulds by The Old Piping Bag.
To make the cake a little different from my standard sugar flowers I used silk roses for between the tiers and on the top of the cake. Silk flowers are great alternative to fresh and sugar flowers and really under used for weddings.
The cake being 6 plus tiers is really tall as you can imagine and if placed on one of lovely vintage pedestal stands will make a tall imposing centrepiece for your wedding.
