Choose a flavour that will appeal to many.

There are so many different cake flavours out there today but we find that crowd favourites like chocolate, vanilla and red velvet, all go down a treat! Choose a cake maker based on recommendations or great reviews. Check out their showrooms and online profiles so you can see their work first hand, and be sure to ask about tasting boxes to help you select your flavour!

It’s the most expensive cake you’ll ever buy so you want it to be amazing.

White is the new white

There’s no such thing as boring white when it comes to cakes. White is a universally loved colour for a wedding and one that fits with almost any theme. What it lacks in colour vibrancy can be well and truly made up for in creativity and piping skills. Intricate patterns, embellishments and well-placed decorations will create a cake of elegant beauty.

If cake just isn’t your thing, there are alternatives. Cupcake towers are becoming increasingly popular, along with donut walls, croquembouche, or even macarons can be just as delicious and interesting to serve at your wedding. Presentation is really key if you are trying something a little bit novel for your wedding.
