Victorian style royal iced oval wedding cake, which took a few weeks to create. All decoration is piped royal icing. This cake has a pre cut portion (which was was common practice up to the 1970’s). It’s a 10 × 8 inch oval (7 inches high before decoration) on a 16 inch x 14 inch cake board and had a finished weight of 2 stones (28 lb or 12.7 kg). The piped cushion work on the top edge of the cake was 20 piped lines deep. The piped decoration at the base of the cake is extension work.
Just in case you are wondering the groom was from Yorkshire hence the Yorkshire rose, the bride was from Staffordshire hence the Staffordshire knot.


Exquisite work!

Gorgeous piping work!
What do you mean by “pre cut portion”?
And how does one cut a cake so enrobed in royal icing stringwork, extensions and cushions??

Hi Garden Baker
All that’s is required to cut a royal iced cake is a sharp knife (the royal icing has glycerin added which stops the royal icing drying rock solid so no need for a hammer/chisel), as to all of the piping most of that will just break away from the cake during the cutting process.
Hopefully this picture will help re the pre cut portion!

Thanks, June.
Piping is my thing
