One of the key focal pieces of any wedding is the cake. Sitting in splendor at the center of your reception, the cake is often the pinnacle of a couple's wedding theme. So just how much should you spend on this particular element of your wedding? Well, if you are baker Michael Burns from Ayrshire, Scotland, then no price is too high. He has just designed, baked and decorated the UK's largest and most expensive wedding cake for his marriage on Saturday 12th December.
The cake, which reached a towering nine foot five inches, weighed several tonnes, and required a fork lift to transport it from his bakery to the venue. As the cake weighed several tons, the floor underneath it also had to be reinforced to prevent it from disappearing through the floorboards!
