For such an elegant setting, the cake really needed to look the part. Hilary and Richard, the bride and groom, chose a simple ivory cake, with fresh roses. I piped rows of dots on two tiers, which were finished off with satin ribbon, and on the other two I piped a pattern to resemble the lace on Hilary's dress.
I hadn't visited Greenwich in a while, and I had never seen inside the Painted Hall, despite walking through the grounds before. It is free to visit, and well worth a look.
Many congratulations to Hilary and Richard on their marriage. I hope you had a fantastic day!
