Although only fleetingly seen in episode 1 the enormous 4 tier wedding cake we made for Lady

Marys wedding received some press coverage and a mention from the British Sugarcraft Guild Forum.
Thank you to designer Charmian Adams for the mention in The Radio Times!
Asked for something spectacular the design was developed from a black and white photograph of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s wedding cake of 1936.
Elements of Highclere Castle and the family coat of arms were incorporated into the design and the surface of the styrafoam cake was heavily decorated in cast detail and piped in white decorators caulk !
We  also made Lady Ediths slightly more sober cake in a later episode.
