I am proud to be a proud supporter of equal marriage. As such, I am thrilled to share these pictures of a celebratory Wedding Cake that I produced for a wonderful event, organised by the amazing Mango Pie Events.

The finished cake was brilliant white, ruffled, and tied with yellow ribbons. So far, so simple, right?

The cake was topped with a totally adorable Bride and Bride topper. I love these retro toppers. Still looking fairly standard for a Wedding Cake until…

BOOM! Rainbow cake inside!

The cake itself was a simple vanilla sponge. The secret to good rainbow cake is to ensure that you use the very best quality Vanilla Extract that you can lay your hands on and to up the quantity that you use in the mix. I only use LittlePod Vanilla, which is so delicious that it prevents any ‘food colour taste’.

To get this intensity of colour, you will need to use professional quality paste food colours, diluted in a few tablespoons of water.

The cake went down a treat with the guests and I received some lovely feedback…

“The cake was absolutely DELICIOUS! The client was over the moon and was so surprised that you managed to create so many fine layers and yet the cake was still so moist. The cake was truly stunning inside and certainly put a smile on everyones face.
A big thanks from the LGBT team and an explosion of gratitude from me for making our designs a reality.”
 
If you are looking to surprise your guests on your big day, I definitely recommend this Secret Rainbow Cake!
Wishing you all the most fabulous week and a wonderfully colourful Autumn ahead.
