As some of you may know, I entered The Wedding Industry Awards last year and won West Midlands Wedding Cake Designer of the Year! As a regional winner, I was automatically put forward to the finals which are coming up very soon – 15th January 2020 at Café De Paris, London – exciting!!
As part of the judging criteria, all 8 wedding cake designer finalists were given 9 days notice to video themselves producing a 3 tier dummy cake using the inspiration provided and to post cake samples (3 flavours) to the 4 judges. As you can imagine, this was no walk in the park especially on the run up to Christmas and fitting it around a busy order book!
I thought it would be nice to show you the inspiration we were given alongside my design so you can where I’ve taken ideas from and hopefully you will agree how well they match up! Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram too as videoing myself working wasn’t quite as scary as I imagined (proper introvert here!) and I will be posting some of the videos so that you can see some of the time and skills it takes to create a wedding cake.
The 7 other finalists are all amazingly talented so I highly doubt that I will win at the finals but I am immensely proud of winning the West Midlands regional title and I intend to go to the awards anyway to party the night away with lots of other fabulous wedding suppliers.
