Are you looking for a spectacular cake for your big day? Here you’ll find a range of remarkable wedding cakes that not only look the part but taste amazing too. Whether you’re after a traditional fruit or a beautiful tower of cupcakes, we’ve picked our favourite wedding cakes. Come and take a look.
The Traditional: Three Tier, Iced Fruit CakeYou can’t go wrong with a classic fruit cake. And if you’re one for traditions then you’ll be wearing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. So go all out and choose a traditional cake flavour for your wedding day: the oh-so-delicious and slightly boozy fruit cake. The best thing? Why not have your Mum make your wedding cake; we all know that no one can make fruit cake better than Mum and if it’s a family recipe, even better.
The Head Turner: Croquembouche
Aside from the bride of course, there’s nothing more beautiful than a croquembouche at a wedding. And not only does it look good, it tastes absolutely sensational. The best thing about this French wedding cake is that it’s not something that many have heard of, let alone seen at a wedding! So if you’re looking for something that’s different to your stereotypical wedding cake, a croquembouche is a winning choice. This tower of profiteroles makes for a delicious dessert and a spectacular centrepiece on the buffet table.
The Alternative: A Cheese Cake
Have you ever seen the Friends episode where Monica gets excited about the thought of living in a house of cheese? Well, if you shared her enthusiasm, then a wedding ‘cake’ made of cheese may be for you! There’s no point in splashing out on a fruit cake simply because of tradition if you’re more for savoury; Weddings cost enough as it is, without throwing money (or cake) down the drain. Make a visual statement with a cheese celebration cake, and with so many cheeses to choose from, you’ll be able to design your own dream cake.
The Stylish: Cupcake Tower
Do you go crazy for cupcakes? If you do, a cupcake tower is perfect. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t want little bites of heaven beautifully displayed at their wedding? The best thing about cupcakes is that each and every single one can be customised, and you can have a variety of flavours! Why not have a trio of different flavours such as red velvet, carrot and lemon to really give your guests the ‘wow’ factor. Fancy cutting a cake on your big day? Don’t let cupcakes put you off; opt to have a tower of cupcakes and then a mini cake on the top.
