When Katie first emailed me about her wedding cake her head was full of ideas. She knew she wanted a ‘Musical Theatre’ themed wedding cake and she wanted something different and unique – a total one-off piece.
She gave me a her colour palette and a list of West End productions she wanted to have featured, including Phantom Of The Opera, The Sound Of Music, Wizard Of Oz, Les Mis and My Fair Lady
This is what I designed for her and hubby-to-be Chris.
The final 5 tier cake included 4 tiers of cake with a double height, three dimensional theatre stage, sugar eidelweiss to represent The Sound Of Music, a miniature chocolate chandelier and sugar mask to represent Phantom. A pair of chocolate ruby red slippers for The Wizard Of Oz, two flickering sugar candles for Les Mis. Layers of sugar ruffles, swags and tails all complete with silver trims and detailing synonymous with a theatre and the remaining tiers were wrapped in edible lace along with a single vintage sugar flower to represent My Fair Lady.
In the centre hand-written on a sugar scroll are the words from the West End Show Phantom,
"Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime."
It was so wonderful to design a piece so specific to the bride and groom and bring their theme to life for them. I really do have the best job in the world.
