Paul’s Chevron Wedding Cake mixes the contemporary with the classic – the chevron design gives it a modern feel, while maintaining an elegant aesthetic with the silver leaf and delicate cake lace wrapped around the second tier. A lovely mix of pastel coloured daisies, roses and peonies are used to decorate the cake. Paul recommends allowing yourself two to three days to make this cake and it is most suitable for intermediate to advanced cake designers.

There are some techniques that are assumed knowledge and are therefore not listed as lessons within this tutorial, but they can be found by following the links to Icing Round Cakes, Ganaching Cakes and Stacking Cakes which are within our Free Beginners section. Feel free to ask for any advice at any time.

We would love to see your take on this cake, so feel free to hop on over to our Facebook Page and share your snaps with us!
