Those suffering from cake withdrawal symptoms ever since Great British Bake Off finished its run may take some sugary comfort from the repeats of this delicious morsel. Master patissier Eric Lanlard maintains that with great ingredients, recipes and attention to detail, even novice home cooks can achieve professional results.

Maybe, but his show-stopper three-tier cake, inspired by the royal wedding and large enough to serve 120 people, might prove a tough challenge for most of us. It takes six hours to bake and half a day to ice, for one thing. It does look amazing, though. 

About this programme

2/10. The patissier is invited to create a cake for a magazine's royal wedding edition, and is joined at his home by members of a family wishing to make an equally top-notch creation for a christening celebration.
