Which Wedding Cake Will You Choose?

Which Wedding Cake Will You Choose?

We are all incredibly lucky to live in what I’m deeming a Cakenaissance. Gone are the days of a choice only between a fruit cake or a Victoria sponge – we, worldwide, have gone wild with our cake choices. Not only are we experimenting with flavours, but decoration is getting wilder and taller too (whilst, at the same time, a lot of the time we’re opting for much more pared back, contemporary designs. How does that work?).

So we thought we’d put all of your wedding cake options in one place. It’s nowhere near an exhaustive list—though if anyone wants to task me with that and make my official role World Cake Taster I will categorically NOT complain—and obviously you should talk through everything with your cake maker to ensure structural integrity and a nice shine, but it’s a good starting point if you want to think outside the (cake) box.
