Warning: are you allergic to NUTS?
Fruit Cakes and Marzipan contain NUTS (Almonds)
If you, or a relative has a nut allergy PLEASE say so!
For sponge Wedding or Celebration Cakes I use a moist Victoria Sponge type cake base and fondant icing; plus marzipan if you prefer for extra cost. Alternatively, the marzipan base under the fondant can be substituted with either a mock marzipan or white/dark chocolate paste base, and even Chocolate Ganache. For carved Cakes, a moist dense sponge cake base is made for carved cakes requiring a lot of modelling.
All cakes are a minimum of four inches deep, all made of four layers of luxurious sponge, and filled twice with whipped vanilla butter cream and the centre with jam flavour of your choice, which holds its own when cutting, particularly for wedding cake portions. For chocolate cakes, White Belgian chocolate can be whipped into the butter cream to give that extra luxurious taste.
For those who prefer no icing or marzipan and who prefer just a butter cream icing coating, I make a Traditional Sponge, and the same recipe for Naked Cakes with no covering and just a dusting of icing sugar and some prefer fresh berries around the sides (subject to availability)
All sponge cakes are of 4 layers of sponge, filled three times, below are some suggestions:
Traditionally, a Wedding Cake sponge is Vanilla; you can also choose from Chocolate, Lemon, Orange, Carrot cake, Coffee, and more besides. The choice of flavoured sponges and fillings are left to your imagination………. !!!!
