Squires Kitchen’s school on BBC Two

Tuesday 3rd May

Did you see The Great British Wedding Cake on BBC Two at 8pm on Wednesday 20th April 2011? You may have recognised Squires Kitchen’s cookery school where the finalists of The Great British Bake Off, Edd, Miranda and Ruth, each took on the challenge to make and bake two spectacular wedding cakes in just 16 hours.

Renowned baking writer Mary Berry and professional baker Paul Hollywood also looked at how the British wedding cake has changed dramatically through the centuries, from Tudor and Victorian times to wartime Britain, the affluent 80s and present day.

As well as a traditional tiered wedding cake, Edd, Miranda and Ruth each created a contemporary wedding cake in their own individual style with Ruth choosing a lemon meringue tower, Miranda a white chocolate cake and Edd a macaroon tower.

To have a go at making the finalists’ wedding cakes, visit for all the recipes.
