Choosing your Wedding Cake

If there is one element of your wedding that is easy to make completely unique, it’s your wedding cake. You can create pretty much anything out of marzipan and fondant icing nowadays, so use this as an opportunity to have a bit of fun and reflect your personalities. We’ve seen a variety of incredible wedding cakes across our wedding venues; from extravagant masterpieces that depict the wedding venue itself, to a towering Croquembouche. 

Dating back to medieval times, wedding cakes traditionally were spirit soaked, spiced fruit cakes that could be enjoyed again at a child’s Christening. Nowadays, more couples are choosing unique wedding cake flavours to complement their evening buffet, so that once your guests have enjoyed your wedding bands’ first set, they can recharge with a sugar rush and keep your wedding venue alive all night long.
