I was contacted last year by Wedding TV. they asked if I would be interested in taking part in a programme to be aired on Sky TV.
Of course I said yes and then thought I had better get a few details and find out what I would need to do.
The idea is that 6 brides with very definite ideas about their dream wedding cake present these ideas to 6 cake designers who then set about creating that dream wedding cake.
The aim was to create something totally out of the ordinary and a one in a million cake.
The six cake style categories were: Gothic, Glamour, Shoes, Sweets, Animal, and Steam punk.
Each of the six cake designers was given three of these categories and the task of creating something with the wow factor – not to be confused with the X factor which is easily done as the TV and charts have been dominated by it for weeks.
The programme culminates in a ‘reveal’ where the cake designers display their cakes and the brides to be choose their favourite.
It is then the job of that designer to re produce that cake for the wedding
Anyway getting back to the point. I was given the Gothic, shoe and steam punk cake.
No probs with the first two. Then the producer said steam punk and I (and everyone who I have since told) said what?
I will let you know how I did at the reveal but not just yet as the programme is not due to go out until spring 2010.
I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who is into Wedding TV and likes to judge and decide who will win – just like the X Factor!
