How to choose a wow-factor wedding cake

How to choose a wow-factor wedding cake Q – We want a cake that will wow our guests. Do you have any suggestions?

"Be inspired by colour. Warmer tones are on-trend, and blues are being used in sugar floral arrangements as well as a base colour. If you’re unsure of using colour, then focus on textures and fabrics like folds in sugar paste. Designs inspired by the details on your dress can also provide the wow factor.

"The use of clear acrylic tiers will add height and drama to your design. Leave these clear to create a sense of the tier above floating, or fill it with flowers, rose petals or crystals to create an eye-catching effect.

"Flavours are becoming more adventurous as is our need for something different. Pink champagne, lime and pistachio are beautiful delicate flavours, these add a lovely pastel shade to a simple sponge, which looks stunning when served.

"Although these flavours are becoming more on-trend, I find that a majority of my couples still opt for a traditional vanilla bean or rich chocolate cake. Having the option of a different flavour per tier saves them from having the difficult decision of choosing just one flavour."
