This simple, yet beautiful wedding cake is perfect if you don’t have much experience making wedding cakes. I’ve given excessive quantities of marzipan and fondant icing, as it’s best to start with more than you need, especially for beginners.
Equipment and preparation: For this cake you’ll need an 18cm round tin, 25cm round tin and respective thin cake boards and a cake smoother. To assemble the cakes, you’ll need a 30cm/12in cake drum, 4 dowelling rods, a 12cm/4½in thin cake board and a 12cm/4½in polystyrene cake spacer. All of these are available from specialist cake shops.
