1. Groom in a kilt

Scotland’s traditional dress is not often seen on the streets of Glasgow or Edinburgh, but almost always worn by the groom and men in the bridal party at weddings.

You will often get asked for figures of the bride and groom for your wedding cakes. Remember with the bride its always size zero!

When the groom’s getting married in a kilt its a great touch to offer to make a sugar model of him in his traditional dress. It’s quite straightforward just by following the steps in the video.

To have the groom standing up you can set the legs the night before by adding gum tragathan to the sugarpaste which will give you the support needed to add the body. When standing up always support with spaghetti through the body.

You can spend a lot longer on the kilt by cutting out different colours of sugarpaste instead of the colouring pens used here. It’s just down to choice and time.
