Sylvia Weinstock: The Queen of Wedding Cakes

Sylvia Weinstock is known as the 'Queen of Wedding Cakes' and for a good reason. Sylvia makes and bakes the cakes for the very rich and famous. Her client list includes Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Maria Maples, Eddie Murphy, Tom Arnold, Whitney Houston, Chynna Phillips and William Baldwin, Cyndi Lauper, Jane Fonda, Alex Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Wayne Newton and Oprah Winfrey. Sylvia creates more than 500 cakes a year in all shapes and sizes. Her cakes can be as tall as 12 feet high and feed as many as 5,000 people. Prices for a Sylvia Weinstock cake can go well over £7,000, ouch!

Here's Sylvia and those wacky glasses :o) 

 Here's a few examples, that might offer you inspiration for a more modest version for your own wedding. And yes those are all beautifully hand crafted iced flowers!
