And not just any old cakes either. Wedding cakes, to be specific. Mine was a traditional fruit cake in three tiers (I hate fruit cake, so I had a separate sponge tier just for me), with plain white icing, garlanded with sweet peas.

But if I was to go back and do it again, I think my choice would be tiers composed of fairy cakes, each decorated with white icing and little silver balls. On the other hand, now you can have a cake made entirely of cheese (what a fabulous idea!) or perhaps a Krispy Kreme donut cake....

Incidentally, how long do fruit cakes keep for? We've still got the top tier in a tin, over a year later...
