Royal wedding cake designer creates couple's dream Jaffa cake

24 Nov 2016

Prince William’s wedding cake designer came to the rescue of one lucky couple who requested a one-of-a-kind creation made from Jaffa Cakes

Jaffa Cake fans Tristan and Maria Weedon recently had the wedding cake of their dreams created by none other than Paul Courtney - creator of Prince William's 'Groom's Cake' at his wedding.

Paul, who is McVitie's Culinary Innovation Manager, was called upon when Tristan and Maria commented on Facebook post detailing how much they loved McVitie's Jaffa Cakes. 

Granting their wish, Paul created the impressive three-tiered Jaffa inspired sponge, covered by almost 1,000 original Jaffa Cakes and which took 12 hours to make.

The couple who married on 11th November 2016 at Pendley Manor in Tring were delighted with the result and the generous donation from McVitie's couldn't have come at a better time. Tristan explains: “Our original wedding plan fell apart when our venue went into administration, and we hadn’t even had time to sort a cake out. When McVitie’s approached us and offered to create our wedding cake, it was perfect timing – we’re over the moon that they helped save our day.”

Paul Courtney said of the experience: “Making Tristan and Maria’s wedding cake has been one of my favourite projects to date at McVitie’s. We even included Jaffa Cakes that were handpicked by them both before the big day at our factory in Manchester. Within the space of a month, we designed, tested and created the cake so that Tristan and Maria were able to have a truly bespoke creation for their big day, and I’m delighted that it went down so well.”
