Red Dragon Castle Wedding Cake
I have been designing and creating castle wedding cakes for many years. Each one is unique and sculpted by hand. Castle cakes provide the opportunity to include personal details and touches making each one very special to each couple.
I met Alison and Russell at a wedding show. Initially, they had not considered having a castle as a wedding cake. However, as avid ‘Game Of Thrones’ fans, once they saw one of my castle cakes they decided that a castle was just what they wanted for their wedding.
We arranged a consultation and discussed the size, flavours and important elements that they wished to include in the design. The main feature of the cake was to be a large fierce red dragon. The castle that I designed for them featured the dragon clambering down the side of the cake with its wings outstretched. Russell was depicted as a Knight in armour with his sword drawn at the base of the castle and Alison in her bridal gown waiting demurely to be rescued further up the castle.
The castle was created from six tiers of cake, predominantly white iced, with hand painted details. To the top of the castle a flag was placed and hand painted with their names and there was also a shield with their wedding date and initials. The cake also featured trailing creepers with tiny red roses. Alison and Russell also asked me to include some multi sided dice and other games pieces as a personal joke.
