When Mukesh emailed me the first thing he told me was that he was having his very own ‘big fat Indian wedding’ and wanted a cake to match. He also told me that the venue (Twickenham Rugby Stadium) was huge and needed a large cake to stand out in such a large space.
With that in mind we went all out on this 7 tier (including a double height 8 inch) red stencilled showpiece with a traditional Indian dupatta cascading the full length of the design. The dupatta was hand-beaded in sugar dragees, studded with flowers and piped with edible gold. The design was finished off with two bespoke sugar figurines of the bride and groom.
The cake was entirely egg free to cater for all of Mukesh’s guests, meaning everybody was able to enjoy a slice of cake.
I wish Mukesh and Amandeep the happiest of futures, and thank you so much for letting me take on this design for you.
