Royal cake maker Eddie Spence(85) has finally had to retire after an amazing 71 year career making the spectacular cakes for many Royal occasions from weddings, anniversaries and jubilee’s.<br />
<br />
Eddie Spence's renowned icing skills earned him the chance to decorate numerous cakes for major Royal occasions, including the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and Charles and Diana's wedding.<br />
<br />
He also created the cake for the Queen and Prince Philip's golden wedding anniversary - 50 years after he beat the eggs for the cake used for their wedding in 1947 as an apprentice. <br />
<br />
In 2000 Eddie was awarded an MBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours for services to sugar craft.<br />
<br />
Now aged 85, Eddie, from Bournemouth, has finally called it a day.
