1. Flowing florals

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

For towering tiers of sweet dreams, there’s no better choice than a cake made from buttercream bands. Whether couples prefer plain white or a colourful creation, a buttercream cake can be designed to complement their special day. Meanwhile for a lovely layering effect, incorporate a tier of fondant icing – the perfect visual and taste combination!


7. Sandwich-style cakes

9. Delightful dessert display


If one cake just isn’t enough, how about an entire dessert table? Sure to look and taste amazing, fill the table with sweet treats such as a traditional tiered cake and cute cupcakes – it’s bound to delight guests too.


10. Cake collection
