Sarah and Mark met over a mutual love of metal, therefore their big day was never going to be a bog standard white wedding with sugared almonds in net bags, and a tiered cake with lots of piped royal icing. Thank God for that!
That's when the question came. I'd been waiting for it, and was actually quite relieved when it finally occurred. Sarah and Mark asked me to make their wedding cake. They had something small in mind, perhaps one large bundt cake with a small one on top with pretty icing. Not a chance.
After looking through my bundt page, Sarah clapped eyes on the 3D skull I did last Halloween; she was smitten. Initially the two skulls were going to be it, until I decided that this was nowhere near enough cake for our Wedfest knees up! So in the end, we had two skulls (one apple and cinnamon and one lemon and ginger), chocolate covered Snickers, Iron Maiden Trooper beer and raspberry and white chocolate flavoured bundts too.
I'll say one thing, two glittery life-sized skulls wearing top hats definitely caught the guests' attention as they walked into the wedding breakfast. I think the fumes from two kilos of Haribo helped to keep folk alert too...
It was an absolute honour to make Sarah and Mark's wedding cakes, and I'm still pretty choked that they trusted me with such an important task. We had the most fantastic day, Sarah looked utterly stunning and everything went just perfectly. I can't see any wedding topping this one any time soon...
