When Genevieve and Yunok told me that their cake was being made by their friend Rahul, who had won the Great British Bake Off last year, I think I just took for granted that I was in for a treat when I saw it.
Obviously I was not disappointed; the cake was unbelievable.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some pretty spectacular cakes in my time, I do attend weddings for a living after all.
This creation was on another level, truly worthy of a GBBO winner.
I must admit, I felt pretty bad by the end of the day about having taken for granted that the cake would be stunning.
As soon as I saw Rahul at the ceremony I could tell he was under pressure. He wasn’t just a guest at his friends’ wedding, he had a cake to deliver. The construction was mostly done by that point, but he still had to make sure it stayed upright and was finished off, and then stayed that way until it was time to be cut.
I could tell that he was trying to enjoy the wedding ceremony, but also just wanted to get back to his cake.
Anyway, having learned by lesson about taking talented people for granted, I happily went about my business taking photos.
