Celebrity Wedding at Skibo Castle

Rainbow Sugarcraft were delighted to be commissioned to create this stunning five feet high cake for the recent Wedding of a beautiful young actress and her internationally famous entrepreneur husband. The venue was Skibo Castle, set on the outskirts of the picturesque Highland village of Dornock, where Madonna tied the knot some ten years ago.

The richly layered Wedding Cake was displayed in the exquisite panelled Library of Skibo Castle, sunlight streaming through the windows to back light over two hundred handcrafted giant sugar roses. The theme for the cake was champagne, ivory and white and each delicate sugar rose was added individually on the morning of the Wedding.

The highly professional and friendly staff at Skibo Castle could not have been more helpful. Cheerful and muscular young chefs and porters were on hand to help us move the multi tiered cakes sections and someone was always available with iced water and encouraging banter to calm the nerves of two occasionally stressed cake decorators.

Final decoration was added with the use of a handy Library ladder, (always wanted to go up one of those!)
Skibo Castle is without doubt exceptional and building this amazing cake in such an outstanding venue has been one of the highlights of our cake decorating careers. Thank you once again to all the staff, from the highly efficient Wedding co-ordinators to the hard working kitchen porters everyone was extremely helpful and friendly; we hope to see you all again soon.
