The Royal Wedding Cake

HRH Prince Andrew & Miss Sarah Ferguson

In February 1986 David had the honour of making The Royal Engagement Cake for His Royal Highness Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson. David free hand painted a portrait of the Royal Couple in food colour onto the Royal Icing coated cake surface. The rich fruit cake was decorated with Royal Icing free-hand piping finished with a Royal Icing rose. David was requested to deliver the Royal Engagement Cake to Buckingham Palace where it was presented to the Royal Couple. Shortly after the celebrations David received a letter from The Master of The Household at Buckingham Palace who expressed The Royal Prince and his fiance’s delight with the cake.

In July 1986 David had the honour of making The Royal Wedding Cake for His Royal Highness Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson. Inspired by the society wedding styles of the late 19th century, David created a lavish 6 tiered Royal Icing design that stood over 7 feet tall. Decorated with over 6 layers of free hand over-piped Royal Icing patterns, the Royal Wedding creation was adorned with a cascading trail of fresh flowers. David was requested to deliver and set up the cake at Buckingham Palace. Shortly after the celebrations, David received a letter from The Master of The Household at Buckingham Palace who expressed The Duke and Duchess of York’s delight with The Royal Wedding Cake. David was informed that his creation had been viewed by Her Majesty The Queen and all of the Royal Family and their guests during The Wedding Breakfast. The Duke and Duchess also requested that David be presented an official photograph of The Royal Wedding Cake set up in ‘The Blue Room’ at Buckingham Palace where the Royal celebration took place.

The Royal Wedding Cake

HRH Prince Edward & Miss Sophie Reece-Jones

In June 1999 David had the honour of making The Royal Wedding Cake for His Royal Highness Prince Edward and Miss Sophie-Reece Jones (soon to be HRH The Countess of Wessex). Inspired by the location of The Royal Wedding being Windsor Castle, which was built in the year 1086, David created a very ornate medieval style 6 tiered free hand Royal Icing design that stood over 8 feet tall. Decorated with over 9 layers of free hand over-piped Royal Icing patterns, The Royal Wedding creation was adorned with pastillage cherubs and an array of free hand fondant flowers. David then applied airbush shading onto the cake to create an ‘aged’ look to the gothic design. Buckingham Palace requested David to deliver the Royal creation to Windsor Castle where he was greeted by His Royal Highness Prince Edward who watched as David set up The Royal Wedding Cake in the medieval surroundings of St. Georges Hall. Shortly after the celebrations, David personally received a letter from Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex who expressed both her and the Royal Prince’s delight with design. Buckingham Palace sent an official photograph of the Royal Wedding Cake to David which he was most honoured to receive.
