Alex and Hilary’s wedding cake was made by Hilary’s mum’s friend Ann, who she describes as a ‘cake making goddess’. It was two tiers of sumptuous chocolate cake, covered in white fondant icing with blue ribbon. It also featured the ship logo which decorated all of Alex and Hilary’s wedding stationery.
The couple also had a single separate tier of fruit cake, so traditionalists wouldn’t miss out! Their delicious cake was topped by a retro Lego ship, from the 1980s, and a Lego bride and groom.
The cake was served with cheese in the evening, and guests were encouraged to take slices home. However, there was still enough left over for Alex and Hilary to be able to treat their work colleagues to generous helpings of cake after the wedding!
