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?
Leanne Tang, daughter of award winning cake designer Terry Tang, shared her wedding cake designed by her Dad. And as she says, “If you’re from a family with an award-winning cake shop… what else would you expect? :-)”
