Cake Tales: Dear Sir

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.

Celebration Cake for Sir Stuart Etherington.

 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.

Arise, Sir Stuart.

Congratulations, Sir Stuart!
