One could, of course, have a traditional wedding cake with white layers studded with candied fruit and coated with virtually inedible hard, white royal icing. Instead I think a gentler cake, although gala in form and decoration, would be this layered cake made with wholewheat, honey and an infusion of camomile. The icing is pale ivory and irresistible. Once again, the fresh flower decoration is edible. If the cake seems heavy on butter, sugar and eggs, don’t worry; a small portion won’t damage your health!
