Flavours

Flavours

Let's start with the flavour! Gone are the days of the boring fruit cakes and sponge cakes, today modern couples are looking for new, refreshing flavours. Choose a wedding cake that tastes just as good as it looks, and your guests will be stunned! Need ideas? Try something mouth-watering like chocolate ganache, toffee flavour or the popular funfetti! And if you want to enhance the flavour and add another visual element to your cake, then try drip icing. 

Colours & Decorations

Colours & Decorations

Ombre cake frostings were popular for quite some time, but now we are seeing new and even more visually fascinating colour blends such as the famed marble effect or even geode cakes which are inspired by the fascinating geological formations. Hand-painted wedding cakes are also increasingly popular, especially the ones with intricate botany-inspired motifs and trendy adornments including edible flowers and pearls, fresh fruit and greenery.

Or maybe you want to replace the traditional tiered wedding cake with something utterly delicious? How about individual cakes, beautifully decorated and tastefully served for each of your guests? Or a lavish tower of donuts or miniature cakes? It doesn’t have to be a big wedding cake, you can choose any bite-size deliciousness!
