Strawberry and White Chocolate Wedding Cake with an Elderflower Cream (GBBO #9)

Strawberry and White Chocolate Wedding Cake with an Elderflower Cream (GBBO #9)

Now I have never made a wedding cake before, but Rita could not afford to have one made for her so as a gift to her I offered to make one but in my own style! I wanted to make a simple cake but garnish it in a simple yet striking way and I think I achived this as the bride and groom (the latter of which is a chef!!! eeek no pressure then!) were thrilled with it and it did recieve a lot of lovely compliments. Thankfully too, the sponge was light, fluffy and just as I hoped it would be. I cannot tell you how nervous I was before I tasted it and how relieved I was once I had tried it and knew that all was good!

I opted for a victoria sponge flavoured with elderflower cordial, and filled and topped with an elderflower flavoured cream, then I decorated with white chocolate cigarellos and topepd with the juiciest sweetest strawberries – I was so lucky that the fruit I bought were perfectly ripe and tasty.
