Would you trust the Hairy Bakers to make your wedding cake?

Quite a risk to take, asking the Hairy Bakers to make your wedding cake just a week before your wedding without having tasted what their cakes taste like!  Seeing the lads trying to master the art of cake decorating at Patisserie Viennoise of Otley makes you realise why wedding cakes cost so much money.

At Slattery’s they made it all look very simple but that’s because they are the experts and have years of experience.  Just one daisy took about fifteen minutes to make, imagine how long it would take to cover the cake in them!

And this is the final cake, five tiers of fruit cake with daisies, love hearts, piping, vw stick around and the piece de resistance was the VW cake topper (understatement when you call it a topper) which was made by Karen Davies.

The gamble definately paid off, there are not many people who can say they have had such a unique wedding cake, and it looked pretty yummy too!

    Wow! We have two VW campervans – both of which co-incidentally are originally VW orange. Looking on web to see if anyone did cookie cutters for campers, I came across this magnificent wedding cake. Brilliant, from the little campers around the second top cake to the piece de resistance on the top with the two little people looking out. Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for showing.
