How to incorporate Christmas flavours into your wedding cake

Christmas wedding cake Q – What flavours would you suggest for our Christmas-themed wedding cake?

"Christmas is a special time and gives you a wide choice of delicious flavours.

"One of my favourites is a Moroccan orange cake, which is very rich and decadent, filled with a raspberry curd buttercream.

"A Baileys sponge filled with a light chocolate ganache.

"On the more traditional lines, there’s the bakewell, a light almond sponge filled with vanilla bean buttercream and a cherry curd.

"Making the most of the season, how about a delicately spiced pumpkin sponge filled with a rich mascarpone cream? Red velvet is a deep colour and always looks stunning when cut and served to your guests.

"I never like to leave out the one that has stood the test of time, the traditional Victoria sponge. Filled with either raspberry or strawberry conserve and vanilla bean buttercream."
