From the more traditional cake to a range of eye-catching modern alternatives including cupcakes, macaroons and even doughnuts, the wedding cake is constantly evolving.
For your big day you can decide to be as conventional or as whacky as you like.
According to Queen of Cakes, Nazish Ozmar vintage wedding cakes are making a comeback this summer.
Popular flavours include passion fruit, pistachio-cardamom and vanilla sponge with strawberry jam and some feature traditional lace designs to reflect the bride’s dress.
However, if you don’t want to miss out on the bling why not sprinkle a mixture of edible gems to add extra sparkle to something basic.
While cupcakes and macaroons are yesterday’s news, if you want to steer away from cakes altogether, try doughnuts – these dunkable treats are taking centre stage this year.
Ok, so maybe your guests might think you’re nuts but doughnuts, like cupcakes, can be decorated to match your chosen theme. You can try anything from metallic colours to intricate icing designs.
If you are trying to keep to a tighter budget, a simple cake with a personalised cake topper can have just as much impact as something fancy and original.
Either way, the wedding cake plays an important picture perfect moment on your wedding day. Give yourself plenty of time to work closely with your venue or chosen wedding cake maker to ensure your big day lives up to your cake expectations!
