The Wedding cake is called Victoriana, as it is a modern take on the traditional version.

You will need 2 covered cakes (instructions), that are ready for decorating. We are using a 10" and a 6" round cake.

Select a suitable cake top decoration. We made a silk flower posy top, but you may use any other cake topper, that matches the cake and the theme of your wedding.

We are using dowels and pillars to assemble the tiers, but you can use any other cake stand that you like.

In addition you will need:
  • A number 1, 2, and 3 plain round icing tube (decorating tips)
  • A bow cutter
  • A medium/small blossom cutter
  • Templates ready cut for the tops and sides of cakes
  • A small rolling pin
  • A small knife
  • A bowl of royal icing - recipe
  • A clean damp dish cloth
  • A small bowl of water
  • A small paint brush
  • A metal scriber
  • Several grease-proof piping bags
  • White sugarpaste - recipe
  • Cornflour dusting bag. I use nappy liners and a rubber band
  • A cutter for cutting strips (pasta cutter, pizza cutter)
  • Gum Tragacanth 
  • Ribbon for the cake boards that matches your wedding cake topper
