The Simple Wedding Cake Guide

The Simple Wedding Cake Guide

Your guide to picking the perfect cake for your big day!

We all know what kinds of cake we like when choosing a tea-time treat; but when it comes to picking that all-important wedding cake, it suddenly becomes akin to a ‘red wire/blue wire’ situation. Whether you have an idea of what style you would like or not, there is no need to worry; this simple wedding cake guide is here to help make the decision for that delectable dessert just another item checked off the list!

 

THE SHAPE

 

The traditional yet elegant ROUND CAKE — when we think ‘wedding cake’ this is the one that automatically springs to mind. Not only is it the most popular style, with its three tiers, this conventional cake is evolving with modern twists as brides add funkier designs (including, gold leaf, custom toppers and similar heart shaped and scalloped cake designs) to add a touch of glamour to their cakes.

The sassy SQUARE — speaking of more modern styles, the traditional three-tiered round cake has been transformed into a traditional three tiered square cake—you know for those that find circles a little offensive. The square gives a little more to work with due to its boxy style and straight edges.

The TOPSY-TURVY CAKE — seen more in Alice in Wonderland theme celebrations, this funky and very unique design can be great for both theme and non-themed weddings alike. Gone are the days where a wedding has to be the typical traditional affair we have long envisioned; nowadays, brides are showing more of their personality in their choices and to that we say right on!

 

Wedding Cake Guide

 

Of course no wedding cake guide would be complete without wedding cupcakes or cake pops. The centre piece of the event need not be the standard three-tiered cake; recent trends have seen a rise in the pretty little cakes as a replacement for the traditional wedding cake. Not only do you get to have a variety of flavours, but they’re a cute and quirky way of adding your individual taste.

FLAVOURS AND FILLINGS

 

Simple Sponge — is the more traditionally favoured cake type as it is so simple to make and makes for easier stacking.

Fruitcake — a sponge cake with added dried or crystallised fruit for an extra sweet yet different taste.

Chocolate — this wouldn’t be a wedding cake guide without the mention of chocolate! This popular flavour can be luxuriously filled with vanilla and chocolate cream for a rich and creamy taste.

Strawberry cake — filled with fresh strawberries and clotted cream with a smothering of strawberry jam, this cake is every strawberry lover’s dream. To incorporate your favourite dessert, a strawberry shortcake style wedding cake will tickle your taste buds.

Lemon sorbet — having a summer wedding? This light and tender cake can be paired with a zingy and fluffy lemon frosting for a refreshing and creamy texture.

 

Carrot — not just for rabbits, this style of cake can be finished off with a beautifully light and creamy frosting to compliment the flavour.

Red velvet — yet another popular choice! Red velvet is topped with a smooth cream cheese icing with red layers filled with delicious buttercream.

 

Cheesecakes — want to break boundaries again? Who doesn’t love a good cheesecake? If a simple sponge cake is not your thing, why not try an unconventional cheesecake in your favourite flavour?

DECORATION

 

Whatever style you’re going for, this wedding cake guide knows that choosing the decoration for your cake is just as important as choosing the flavour! Wedding cakes are now an opportunity to showcase all your favourite things or just to have a little fun whether you have a theme or not!

 

A traditional TRIM, can really finish off your cake if you’re going for something simple yet elegant, whilst some GOLD OR SILVER LEAF can also add some much desired glamour.

 

Wedding Cake Guide

 

Some favour the effortless elegance nature can bring by placing FLOWERS whether on top or around the cake while some may go for a QUILTED OR BEADED texture for their cake to add a touch of designer glam.

 

Don’t forget your cake topper! From initials of the happy couple, a sweet picture or the standard figurines, ensure that whatever goes on top is simply the icing on the cake!
