Ruby Anniversary Cake

40th Ruby Wedding Anniversary Cake

40th Ruby Wedding Anniversary Cake

I made this for Mum and Dad’s ruby wedding anniversary on 5th Septemebr – can’t believe they’ve been married for 40 years! We had a 70s party to celebrate, was so much fun :)

The cake is three layers of fruit cake, covered in marzipan and ivory sugarpaste. Its a small 3 tiered cake, so the largest bottom layer is only 6″ (usually the smallest top cake), and the middle sized and smallest cakes I baked in DIY tins – washed out sweetcorn and baked bean tins, lined with brown paper! The cake is covered in burgundy rosebuds, as requested by Mum, and as a surprise I made a little teacup in the style of her favourite teaset  and filled it with sugar roses.
