8 crucial wedding cake do’s and don’ts for the confection of your dreams

Unveil a stunning centre piece – which tastes delicious too!


1. Do reflect your wedding theme

Before you decide on the colour and style of your scrumptious cake, make sure you have the details of your wedding theme decided. Then, you can integrate it within the overall look of your big day.

2. Do think about the venue

And, part of this is to explore the venue and determine exactly where the cake will be placed. This will help you decided the shape (yes, there is more than one!) and the number of tiers you go for.

3. Do retain consistency

From tier to tier, that is. While each section of your cake does not need to be identical, makes sure a theme is followed through from base to tip.

5. Don’t be afraid to push the style boat out!

And, you can really do things your own way, even when it comes to the cake’s finer details. Pick a colour or a flower which speak to you and integrate it within the design on your cake.

6. Don’t feel forced to go for an almond interior

While its typical to order an almond cake for your big day, this is changing, with more and more couples opting for flavours and textures they’ve always loved. So, whether its red velvet, or vanilla sponge, choose your fave!

7. Don’t be afraid to go for one tier

A multi-tiered cake is, admittedly, the most popular simply because of the amount of people invited to a wedding. But, if you’re having a small, intimate affair, make sure your cake reflects this – otherwise there’s going to be a lot of wastage!

8. Don’t be afraid to go vegan

Make sure you’ve ordered something which everyone can eat and with today’s environmental concerns taking centre stage, there is no reason why you should not cater to your vegan guests.
