Q. Were struggling choosing a cake design for the big day, what 2020 wedding cake trends can we be inspired by?

A. Caroline Bailey says: Caroline says: There are so many exciting colours and designs being asked for by couples this year and a mixture of shaped tiers works beautifully. I always advise couples to consider what would complement their special day and this could even be by starting with their colour scheme.

The trends this year are lots of flowers be it big and bold colours or tiers of flowers, adding extra height and a new dimension to the cake. Another popular request for many of my couples is cascading sugarpaste petals, these are utterly beautiful and can be the classic white or a colour combination to match the wedding theme.

The final element I'd recommend is taking time to consider how you want your cake displayed. Decorating your cake table can take your wedding cake to a whole new level and ensure it is showcased perfectly. Caroline Bailey | Hunkington House Kitchen |
