Walnut cake with American frosting

This cake makes a perfect autumnal wedding cake – in fact, we had it for our own wedding, baked by our dear friend Dervilla. We decorated it with sparklers and dark red rose petals, which made for a rather dramatic and beautiful effect.

It keeps well, so you could send a slice to anyone who was unable to come to the reception. You don’t need a wedding to enjoy this cake, however, as it’s great for any special occasion.

Well done Waqas. There's no way Rachel would leave anything out of her recipes Pratima. American frosting isn't hard like normal icing LG104. It's more like snow - firm but melts in your mouth. Enjoy !
