Make your wedding cake ideas come to life with a stunning cake design that looks as good as it tastes. There are so many different types of cake available that it can get a bit confusing.
The original wedding cake design – a multi-layered cake, with each layer separated by columns, and open space between those layers. Still really popular – always elegant and stylish.
This design originates from Australia and is created by building up a number of same sized cakes on top of each other – to look like one, tall cake – which are then decorated.
This design is extremely popular, consisting of three or more layers of cakes stacked on top of each other without the traditional columns. Suggested decorations include fresh flowers, figurines or a cake topper.
This design has a really modern feel and as the name suggests is created in a lopsided style. Similar to a stacked cake.
Wow factor. Miniature square cupcakes decorated with letters to spell out words like love and marriage can make a striking centrepiece for your guests to talk about.
Let your imagination run wild and create a cake that is personal to you both… Maybe a cake in the shape of suitcases if you met while travelling or Cinderella’s castle if you’re having a fairytale wedding.
This is an alternative to a sponge cake and has really taken off in the last couple of years. Originating from France, the croquembouche is a tall conical or pyramid-shaped tower of profiteroles filled with cream and covered in caramel, peanut brittle and spun sugar – totally delicious and sure to be a big hit with your guests. Many couples chose to serve this as their dessert.
Very similar to the croquembouche but made from mouth-watering meringues. Again this cake could double up as your dessert course.
Chocolate curls are used in a variety of ways; they can be used to decorate the edges of the cake and help contain fruit or they can be the main feature of the cake.
Usually these cakes take on the design of a stacked cake but are covered in smooth, sleek chocolate instead of icing. They look almost shiny.
More like a work of art than a wedding cake. They are intricately decorated with shards of milk, white or dark chocolate.
Again, a breathtakingly beautiful sculpture of chocolate, cleverly disguised as a wedding cake.
Round, square, heart, hexagonal, petal… the possibilities are endless. Some shapes are more complicated to ice than others.
