The National Council for Voluntary Organisations’ Chief Executive, Stuart Etherington was made a Knight Bachelor for his contribution to the Voluntary Sector. His staff wanted to congratulate him with a celebration.
I made this fantastic cake: Vanilla Sponge with Vanilla Buttercream covered with fondant and presented on a fondant board. We decorated the cake with lettering and a golden satin ribbon and with an edible image of Sir Stuart’s coat of arms.
I set up the cake with one of our cake stands and silver knives – some occasions mean that the cake needs a fitting presentation.
After a number of speeches, Sir Stuart was able to cut into his cake, in statesman-like style.
Congratulations, Sir Stuart!
