Royal Wedding Cake Inspiration

Royal wedding cake by Fiona Cairns with wedding cake inspired by Royal Wedding cake

Royal wedding cake designer, Fiona Cairns has added a beautiful new cake design to her collection inspired by the magnificent cake she created for the wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton.

While the replica is still relatively grand at 5-tiers, it is a smaller, simpler version of the royal wedding cake retaining the same overall shape, design and many of the same sugarcrafted features.

The base tier is a petal-shaped cake which very cleverly re-creates the look of the 12 base tier cakes of the royal wedding cake.  In all, it’s a very beautiful cake design for any bride wishing to add a touch of classical romance to her wedding reception. (Image:
