How long have you been designing wedding cakes for?
We have been designing wedding cakes since 2009. Initially a home based business, the company has now grown to 14 members in the team and we have recently opened a showroom in Mayfair, London. It’s a journey we are very proud of and we welcome wedding planning couples to be part of our journey going forward.

What three recommendations would you suggest to couples when it comes to choosing a wedding cake? 
When choosing a wedding cake, the first thing to consider is the flavour. Trying out cake flavours should be one of the most enjoyable wedding planning experiences. Don't be afraid to try flavours that are outside of your current favourites; you may be surprised by flavours you might have originally dismissed.

The second thing to consider is the various dietary and religious requirements of you and your guests. When you are sending out your wedding invitations it's common practice to ask for any special dietary requirements to be stated by your guests on their RSVP's. So,if you have many guests who have a particular dietary requirement they too can be catered for, whether it's a gluten-free, vegan, low sugar or vegan cake option.

However, we find that the most important thing when it comes to ordering your cake is to choose a design that really speaks to both of you and fits with your personality and taste. There is nothing better than putting your feet up at the end of your wedding day and tucking into a delicious slice of your wedding cake

How far in advance should couples order their wedding cake? 
Typically we suggest up to 12 months in advance,  but no less then 3 months.

Do you have a best seller, and if so, what cake is it?
Our best sellers are floral designs, especially cascading sugar flowers 

Do you offer a variety of wedding cake flavours?
At GC Couture we offer up to 16 wedding cake flavours including all dietary requirements.
Our delicious wedding cake flavours include: Vanilla, Chocolate, Red Velvet, Nutella, Green Tea, Cookies & Cream, Lemon, Salted Caramel, Cherry Bakewell, Chocolate & Orange, White Chocolate & Cranberry, Strawberry & Champagne, Mint Chocolate Chip, Carrot & Walnut, Coconut & Lime and Raspberry Ripple.

Are people still ordering traditional wedding cakes or are people going down an alternative route?
Traditional wedding cakes are here to stay but with a twist, alternative flavours on each tier is a great idea when it comes to pleasing your entire guest list. 

Do you offer a bespoke wedding cake service if couples have their own vision of wedding cake design?
We are very flexible in our approach and would welcome couples who have their own vision. With our experience we can guide the couples to design something extra special for their wedding day.

What are you favourite wedding cake trends?Pastel colours such as pinks, corals, yellows, baby blues and mint greens are always a popular choice. Pastels are so pleasing to the eye, and so much can be done in terms of the style and design of cake. They can act as a canvas on which to place a couple's own thoughts or they can look classic and elegant as they are.

If you could create and design a wedding cake for any celebrity couple, who would it be for and why?     
Victoria & David Beckham; sophisticated style icons with an elegant and timeless presence. The GC team would embrace and enjoy every moment of the design process.
