The Wedding Cake Hall of Fame

Thursday 29th August 2013

What makes the perfect wedding cake? Is it the expertise in the modelling of the flowers? The precision of the piping? Or the creativity in reflecting the bride and groom’s personalities? We would venture to say all of the above! Not forgetting the love and care that goes into creating the wedding cake.

When we put out a call to our Facebook and Twitter fans, asking them to share their wedding cake creations we were blown away by the response. Thank you so much to everyone that’s tweeted and shared photos. It’s been a daunting task whittling them down to display here. We’ve chosen 20 to enter the Renshaw Wedding Cake Hall of Fame. Do you agree with our choices?
