2. Mixed mediums

For brides and grooms who can’t decide their favourite type of wedding cake, there’s always the option to mix things up. For example, create a three-tiered cake that includes a semi-naked cake tier, fondant tier, and buttercream tier. Delicious and decadent, it’s the perfect way for indecisive couples to have their cake and eat it!


3. Cute cupcakes


If budding brides and grooms don’t want a traditional wedding cake, why not opt for a picture-perfect cupcake creation? What’s more for the best of both worlds, have a cupcake tower topped with a classic wedding cake.


4. Modern marble

A sleek and gorgeous style that’s ideal for a contemporary wedding day, marble fondant cakes are sure to wow guests! Couples can choose their favourite colours and extra touches such as gold borders or a bit of sparkle, to achieve the cake of their dreams.


5. Marvellous macarons


Perfect for rustic and elegant weddings alike, naked cakes remain a firm favourite amongst couples. To add that extra special sparkle, why not adorn the creation with some delicate macrons – dainty, eye-catching, and of course, delicious!


6. Beautiful buttercream
