Telegraph UK online ~ Making your own wedding cake could not be simpler. Diana Henry decorated this wedding cake using a mixture of crystallised petals from large ivory roses and whole miniature roses. This icing looks best with ivory, cream, pale yellow or peach-coloured petals. The miniature roses are not edible, so remember to warn guests. The iced cake can be brought to the venue on its stand, with the crystallised petals in an airtight box. Apply them a couple of hours before the wedding.
