Royalty - Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Katharine Worsley Wedding - London1961
Mr Cyril Brown at work on the 3-tier, 105lb cake which was presented by a well known firm of London caterers for the wedding at York of Miss Katherine Worsley and the Duke of Kent. The cake, which is five feet in height took two men six weeks to make. Decorated with delicate tracery in sugar, the cake incorporates the couple's new Coat of Arms, hand painted in sugar panels on the base tier. The middle tier bears a St George and the Dragon motif and the Yorkshire rose and the monograms of the bride and groom - E in pale blue and K in pink - appear on the top tier. This is not the official wedding cake.
