No matter how well planned and intentioned there are few brides who don’t have second thoughts about something they have selected for their special day. The wedding cake is no different especially when there are so many styles available. Some of the easier questions are; should it be round or square? White or ivory? Sponge, fruit, chocolate, carrot or even lemon cake filling. Or can we have a different filling on each layer?
Having either seen something in a magazine or on a website some brides have a clear idea of the cake they’d like. In many respects they’re the lucky ones. For most it involves a lot of head scratching, deep thought and in some cases sleep-ness nights.
We know how important it is to get it right. This is why we encourage the bride to make an appointment with one of designers to discuss ideas and taste the cake.
Choosing the right filling
How the cake tastes is arguably what it’s all about. There can be nothing more disappointing than to have guests complain to the wedding party that “the cake was too dry” or “too ‘anything'”. Understanding that it’s not only the design that’s to be superb the cake must taste delicious too.
With a wide selection of fillings available you can choose from fruit, chocolate, sponge, lemon, toffee and carrot (not suitable for all cake designs) and many more. Many are now moving away from the tradition of fruit cake with most are finding that sponge and chocolate are the favourites and are seldom left with much to take home.
Choosing the right design
There are so many designs available it can be quite mind blowing to try and select the right one first time. Our design team are experienced in being able to take your ideas and transform them into a design that will compliment the wedding.
Not all our contemporary designs are as far removed from tradition. There are a number of neat square, round and petal contemporary cakes decorated in anything from sea holly to sugar calla lilies. All our designs are easily tweaked to accommodate the theme of the wedding.
