Spotlight on: Rosalind Miller Cakes
Former graphic design lecturer Rosalind Miller, decided to apply her artistic skills to baking and cake design - and we’re sure glad she did! The world-renowned designer has been named Best Wedding Cake Designer of the Year for two years in a row, and it’s easy to see why.
Floral cascades, whimsical designs and intricate detailing turn cakes into show-stoppers that have garnered attention from every corner of the world. The cakes have found the perfect home at London’s iconic Harrods where an exclusive new range of Rosalind’s wedding cakes are available.
We love the elegance of cakes of designs like the Anna Floral five tier wedding cake (below). This breath taking cake includes delicate roses, hydrangeas, viburnum and ranunculus cascading down each tier on a layer ivory icing. Then there’s the modern touch of bling featured on the Golden Meadows cake. Inspired by floral head garlands, the cake includes tiny meadow flowers and gold leaf to create a cake with the magical feel of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Under the outer layers, there is something special to be found. The cake is first covered in a layer of chocolate ganache or a traditional marzipan undercoat. This provides the foundation for a flawless sugarpaste covering. Cakes are also available with a covering of purely Swiss Meringue buttercream instead of sugarpaste (anyone else starting to feel hungry?)
For craftsmanship like this understandably doesn’t come cheap. Tiered cake prices start from £480 ($815) and for bigger cakes and elaborate designs you can expect to pay £1125 ($1910).
Another option is making your own as Rosalind runs masterclasses in London where she teaches skills in cake design and baking, imparting her knowledge and tricks of the trade in an intimate setting.
