Cake with calla lilies and ribbon wrapped round.JPG

This was a very complex cake with many components and, as such, a very enjoyable challenge. The cakes were on sheets of glass rather than cake drums, with iced polystyrene blocks between the tiers. Each tier of cake was wrapped round four times with narrow chocolate brown ribbon and then icing dots were piped in the gaps between the ribbon. A cascade of sugar mango calla lilies and bear grass completed the cake.

This cake was delivered to Le Talbooth in Dedham last week. When the bride and groom returned the sheets of glass to me on the Sunday they were very complimentary. It was a real stunner of a cake.
