Last month I had the honour of delivering and setting up a beautiful cake at Stanmer House in Brighton for Emma and Robin Reed.
The cake was three tiers of different flavours, including raspberry and white chocolate, vanilla and light chocolate cake. It was then covered in a white chocolate paste and then decorated with lots and lots of lovely white chocolate cigarellos. I think I actually used the best part of 3kg or Belgian white chocolate on this cake. Yum!
What made this cake particularly great was each tier was separated by a glass vase filled with burnt orange cala lilies and glass beads with a domed arrangement on top with autumn-coloured roses and foliage. Not only did it look dramatic but it almost doubled the cake’s height and gave it the real wow factor for guests.
Here are a couple of pix – one of the cake on its own and one with the happy couple cutting it. Congratulations Emma and Robin!
