Lambeth style wedding cake

This recent wedding cake is decorated in Lambeth style Royal Icing.  The art dates back to the Victorian times when intricate and layered designs were hand-piped on wedding cakes using a heavy meringue piped through various nozzle styles. In the 1910s-30s, Joseph Lambeth published a rare but still available compendium of this method which sealed the method as his own, although it had existed since the 1880s.
