Who’s looking forward to a four-day weekend? I vow to spend at least one day stuffing my face full of chocolate eggs and resting up before the Foodies Festival season kicks off at the end of the month.
In the meantime, I’m happy to tell you that the latest issue of Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft Magazine is now available in shops and online! I am especially proud of this issue as my series of historical bakes continues.
Looking ahead to the Wedding season, I was thinking who in history I would most like to bake a Wedding Cake for. I came up with Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville; their marriage being one of the most successful of any in our royal history. Their bloodline is still alive and on the throne today. If that does not warrant cake, I don’t know what does.
You will have to pick up the magazine to read all about the significance of the motifs that I have used and get step-by-step instructions to recreate the design at home – including the handmade sugar roses. These roses are a staple for any Wedding Cake designer so it’s well worth picking up a copy today and keeping this for reference.
This cake is extra special to me as it was inspired by a love of this specific period of history given to me by my Mother and it is her Birthday tomorrow. Happy Birthday, Mum! Thanks for the constant inspiration, support, and love.
