Fiona Cairn from Leicestershire and her team made this cake - she supplies the likes of Selfridges and Harrods.
This 9 tiered baby took 5 weeks to create.
Do I like it ? Yes and No - I guess it has to be suitably embellished to compete against the surrounding elegant setting ... perhaps a little too much for my liking .... but perfect for a princess!
What I love about this cake is the detail and thought that went into it - Kate gave detailed instructions to include 17 different types of flowers for their meanings...
the "language of love"...I detail some below
Sweet William: Grant me one smile
Honeysuckle: The bond of Love
Lily of the Valley: Sweetness, Humility
Apple Blossom: Preference, Good fortune
Daisy: Innocence, Beauty, Simplicity
White Heather: Protection, Wishes come true
and many many more..... I am SUCH a hopeless romantic.
How can you not become lost in that list?
The fourth tier featured intricate garlands, reflecting the architechtural details in the room.
The cake was traditional fruit - and the bride was suitably impressed. The detailing is mindblowingly exquisite.
What do we all think of the cake?
