The Wedding edition is one of my favourite issues that we bring together every year. This one is filled with so much beautiful wedding inspiration, from Naked Cakes to cakes with multiple tiers, cakes covered with flowers and even special themed cakes. I am really excited about our Dream Wedding Locations feature, where ten cake artists have come together to make cakes inspired by these amazing settings. Each cake has been made with a place as the theme and they are just stunning!
The highlight of this issue is our interview with a cake hero of mine – Sylvia Weinstock. She needs no introduction, but I will give you one anyway: with over 35 years of experience making cakes for the likes of Oprah, Robert de Niro, Jennifer Lopez, the Kennedys and the Clintons, I am totally honoured to have Sylvia in our magazine this month. She is a force to be reckoned with, and someone with incredible sass and drive for her love of creating beautiful wedding cakes. The one thing that totally floored me was the discovery that she only uses Italian meringue buttercream to cover her cakes – NO FONDANT! Hers is a truly amazing story, so I hope you enjoy reading it.
With so much in this issue, we have a lot to share with you. We have some interestingly refreshing takes on Wedding Toppers for you to be inspired by. We have a masterclass in Naked Cakes from Miss Ingredient, who specialises in beautiful wedding cakes. Also in this issue is a detailed account of how to create fabulously tall wedding cakes. Covering all the DOs and DON’Ts, it will ensure you get it right when assembling towering cakes. For this feature, we asked the boys from Sugar Sugar Cake Studio to give us their top tips and tricks and they share some fantastic insight!
We have four wedding cake tutorials for you to try, from the classic and stylish to a novelty Owl Wedding Cake. My favourite tutorial this month is the Tuscan Illusion Cake by Nasa Mala Zavrzlama. It’s very detailed and easy to follow – you must give it a go!
As always, check our our Elevenses section for competitions, reviews and tips and, this month, expert advice from Mich Turner MBE. Mich answers questions with advice for beginner wedding cakers, through to dealing with bridezillas!
I hope you enjoy this issue, remember to share your creations with us on Facebook!
