Wow – what an impressive wedding cake.  It feels very celebratory and looks stunning with all those fresh strawberries decorating the icing and scattered around the base.  It has that feel of an English country fete – not that I ever saw one this good growing up!

Tiered Victoria sponge cakes at weddings have been really popular this year, so I like this bit of a twist on that idea.  If you like this tiered sponge cake, have a look at this one here and here.

I simply love Victoria sponge cakes, perhaps even more than chocolate cakes – now that’s saying something!  I think it’s great that they’re making an appearance at wedding’s, and as tiered wedding cakes.

I had dreamt of making one for our wedding, I’d even bought three different sized cake tins, but had to admit half way through the week leading up to the wedding that I would just kill myself off if I tried to make a cake on top of everything else.

I’m determined to make a tiered Victoria sponge cake one day – watch this space!  This one above is very pretty with its roses and fresh strawberries, what I really like is the use of three different coloured roses – pink, red and white.  I think this cake is a bit too neat for my liking, I much prefer this more rustic homemade-looking one, but it doesn’t make this cake any less lovely.

A rustic homemade wedding cake with early spring flowers

I’m all for homemade wedding cakes – whether made by the bride, family, friends or neighbours.  So this fabulous tiered sponge wedding cake is right up my street – if not homemade it looks like it could be, and I love that there’s no fussy icing, just some gorgeous early spring flowers – tiny yellow narcissi and anemones in jewel shades.

Now that’s my idea of wedding cake heaven!  A sumptuous tower of Victoria sponge cake filled with jam, fresh fruit and cream or butter icing.  All finished off with a dusting of icing sugar, dainty roses and a crown of fresh raspberries.

All displayed on a rustic up-turned crate.  More of this sweet Vintage Sussex wedding can be found here: Part 1 and Part 2.
