St Bride’s and the wedding cake

Last night’s I Never Knew That About Britain on ITV had an interesting look at the wedding cake.

The claim that it was inspired by the tower of St Bride’s Church in Fleet Street was ¬†briefly investigated.

Apprentice baker Thomas Rich wanted to impress his master so that he could marry his daughter. Having looked out of the window at St Bride’s he made a tiered cake and won approval.

The programme claimed that the bakery was on the western corner of Creed Lane and Ludgate Hill.
