Choosing your Wedding Cake

A wedding cake is a time-honoured tradition that can be traced back to Medieval times. A rich and heavy fruit-based dough, constructed of several different sized tiers and covered in both marzipan and fondant icing is what has become associated as the traditional wedding cake in the UK.  This is not to everyone’s taste however, and many couples are now opting for a much lighter and more interesting alternative. There are a huge variety of options available today, which mean you can be as wild or traditional as you like!

Wedding cake selection is a prime candidate for Pinterest (or a scrapbook if you prefer the hard-copy approach). Every time you see a cake you like the look of – even if it is just one of the flowers or decorative elements, ‘pin it’.
