An Illustrated Cake

June 9th, 2014

A few months ago when I was originally asked to hand paint a wedding cake, I eagerly agreed without quite realising the enormity of the task. It sounded like a cool idea. But last week, when faced with an immaculately iced, 5 tier (!) tower of cake the morning before Big Day, it suddenly dawned on me: there is no room for error! No edit undo.

The bride and groom wanted a floral pattern interwoven with little details and some places and objects which were special to them. The whole job took many many hours but was worth it, I hope you agree!
