Flavour ideas for a winter wedding cake

Cake slices Q – We’re having a Christmas-themed wedding and would love to incorporate some of the season’s flavours into our cake. Do you have any suggestions?

"There are many ways you can incorporate seasonal flavours into your cake. Here are some of our ideas:

"Why not indulge in chocolate and spice it up with cinnamon, orange and a hint of cardamom filled with a rich chocolate ganache?

"If you don’t like orange, then how about a dark chocolate cake filled with white chocolate and peppermint ganache? Ideal if you’re serving your cake as dessert.

"My all-time favourite treat for this time of year is Baileys, so give a traditional vanilla sponge a hit of Baileys and fill it with white chocolate and Bailey’s ganache.

"Raspberry red velvet filled with a raspberry liqueur is delectable.

"A spice cake filled with cinnamon, mace, nutmeg and allspice with a white chocolate ganache creates a seasonal feel without the traditional fruitcake.

"Bring back your childhood memories with a light gingerbread sponge filled with a rich chocolate ganache.

"If you’re finding it hard to decide, remember you don’t have to stick to just one flavour."
