How to incorporate the season into your wedding cake

Wedding cake Credit: www.bylaurenbarber.comQ – How can we incorporate our autumnal-themed wedding into our cake?

"By pairing your wedding with the natural beauty of the season, you’ll be able to take advantage of widely available products, which you can incorporate into different aspects of your cakes design and styling.

"When creating your overall look, why not add sugar or dried flowers, berries and foliage? When paired with deep, saturated colours like burgundy, golds and plums, your bake will ooze warmth and embrace the seasonal charm.

"Plan your flavours around the time of year. This will tie it in nicely with your theme and give you the chance to use the best ingredients available. Rest assured, going down the autumn route doesn’t mean you will be limited in terms of flavours. You could choose blueberry and cinnamon, which is warmly spiced and tartly fruity. If fruit isn’t your thing, why not go for layers of moist gingerbread sandwiched between a whisky and caramel sauce? This sassy combination is an indulgent alternative that your guests will love."
