"We’re seeing two popular trends that are almost polar opposites of each other. The first is the use of very natural, floral themes. Typically featuring a light, simple colour pallet, decorated with fresh blooms and filled with buttercream, chocolate ganache.

"The second is the use of very dark and rich colours such as black, burgundy and navy blue. These designs are often textured and accented with metallic gold, providing a striking creation that catches your attention.

"Of course, the choice of wedding venue and staging of the cake have a massive impact, and should always be considered when choosing a design. For example, a beautiful bold bake would look out of place in a simple, rustic setting.

"As for flavours, two options that seem to be popular recently are sticky toffee, and coconut and lime."
