a “Did you know?” about wedding cakes

May 24, 2009

While I was in London this past April, I picked up an interesting “did you know” about the tiered wedding cake.  As our red double deck bus manuvered its way through traffic, the tour guide points in the direction of a tiered spire faintly protuding in the sky between two buildings.

“And there’s St. Brides Church to your right” he announced.  “The tiered spire is said to have been an inspiration for the tiered wedding cake design.”

Urgently, I pointed my camera towards the church while at the same time thinking, “I must get a picture for my blog!”  Unfortunately, the tour bus does not stop for anything except for stop lights and traffic jams and our view had already been obstructed by other buildings.  Nevertheless, I dragged my boyfriend the next day to revisit St. Bride’s church to take the pictures below.  Enjoy!

My 1st competition cake

Yellow Wedding Cake

Viola!  My 1st ever cake competition.  I entered the Adult Beginner division competing in the Wedding tiered category.  Although, I did not place, I did have the most enjoyable time with my sister, mom, friends and sugar art enthusiasts alike!  The cakes were phenomenal! I will post the pics from the 2009 Sugar Art Show & Cake Competition in Austin, Texas, later this week.

I already have to jump to the next project which is the sculpted dragon cake for Mr. boyfriend’s birthday this Thursday.
