Another Fairytale Castle Wedding Cake.JPG

Two fairytale castle wedding cakes in 8 days. But they were both so different. This is from a specific fairytale, as suggested by the pumpkin carriage at the foot of the stairs. All I can say is if Cinderella had to run down all those stairs no wonder she lost her glass slipper.

This was for a wedding at Gaynes Park last weekend.

These cakes are my most popular wedding cake. They are called 'helterskelter' cakes because of the way the white chocolate wraps round the cake in a continuous spiral from the top to the bottom. They are, in fact, 4 tiers of chocolate cake stacked up and then wrapped round with the white chocolate. When this has firmed up I add the white chocolate fans and roses, which I have made in advance.

No two helterskelter cakes are the same as they 'evolve' as I build up the wraps and add the fans and roses. Here are the last three I made. You can see they differ and yet the effect is still, 'WOW, how did you do that?'

This very elegant cake was delivered to Crondon Park on Saturday. It was all sponge, covered in ivory sugarpaste with white royal iced dots, mocha ribbon round the base of each tier, and hand modelled white chocolate and milk chocolate roses on the top.
