Riddings baker Luke Evans has designed and created its biggest wedding cake so far this year – for managing director David Yates and operations director Helen Waterfall.

The couple chose a five-tier cake as the centrepiece forv their wedding reception after tying the knot at Shirland Church, near Alfreton.

The fruit cakes were decorated with a completely different intricate design on each tier by the team at the bakery, which has been baking bread and cakes for more than 200 years.
Real avalanche roses in white were placed in between the tiers.

Bride Helen said: “We were absolutely thrilled by the wedding cake. Our team did a great job. They’d been feeding the cake brandy for the past four months and it was beautiful.”

The bakery sells direct to the public from its shop in Greenhill Lane, Riddings, and also supplies around 300 trade and wholesale customers, including in Derbyshire.
