The cutting of the wedding cake is a timeless tradition, but long gone are the days of a three tier fruit cake covered in royal icing. . .
Your choice of cake can be an opportunity to show your individual style and there are so many creative and beautiful types of cakes to choose from.
Here are some of our Capesthorne Hall favourites. . .
This style of cake has been popular for a few years now, and has become something of a modern classic.
The ‘naked’ effect is created by spreading buttercream icing lightly over the edges of the cake, and finishing with beautiful floral decorations.
Nature Themed Cakes
This is a very clever effect that mimics nature and brings the outside in! Chocolate is used to mimic the bark of a tree, and the overall look is finished with a combination of fondant icing and natural flowers to give a simply stunning result.Pastel Colours
Light pastel colours look beautiful whatever the season, and bring a spring/ summer vibe to your wedding cake.
Adding floral details and simple colourful brush strokes will finish the look, and can be co ordinated with your colour scheme.
Tall and Thin
During the past year, many couples have opted for a smaller guest list, and as a result don’t need to have a large wedding cake. This taller sleeker style is a good way of incorporating tiers into your cake design, and still looks incredible!Cake Alternatives
This is a great choice if you don’t want a traditional cake, and there are so many ideas to choose from.
Individual cupcakes, a macaron tower, a pile of chocolate brownies, or a cake made of cheese wheels are just a few ideas. We have even seen a cake made of pork pies, so have fun and give your guests something unusual!
