Most of us have seen a few unbelievable cakes on television programmes and on the internet, but sometimes they just don’t seem that real. We’ve put together some of our favourite wedding cake creations from our real brides to show you that you can have your dream cake too – no matter how crazy!

With a cherry on top

This oversized wedding cake comes complete with an oversized bunch of cherries on top, and our love for this tasty creation is oversized too! Have you ever seen anything like it?!

Keeping in season

We always tell you about making sure your flowers are in season to save you dosh and get your bouquets looking the best they possibly can, how about your wedding cake?!

A little bit of you

Have you and your h2b got a special memory? Did you meet whilst travelling? Why not have your wedding cake similar to this one, and make it completely appropriate to you from top to bottom?

A sweet tooth

Decorate your wedding cake with your favourite sweets and chocolate. It’s guaranteed to look amazing with the colour pop and is guaranteed to get your guests talking… because of the original idea, and possibly because of the E-numbers.

Say cheese

We have always loved the idea of replacing the traditional tiers of cake for tiers of cheese, and this is perfectly done. With the complementing fruit of grapes, figs and dried apricots, there’s a cheese to suit every taste – even some good old Babybels to suit the fussier few.

Light up

Cake is great, and when it can double-up as a candle or light, that makes it even greater. This lighthouse creation for a beachy wedding is both fun and functional – we wouldn’t mind a slice!

Personalised caketoppers

A bit different to the standard bride and groom couple for a caketopper, this matches to the couple. Show your hobbies and interests by personalising a miniature you – saves you getting your flippers out on your big day to show them you love to scuba dive!

Gigantic cupcake

Cupcakes instead of your wedding cake is a bridal trend that’s been going for a while, and is set to stay, too! But what happens when you don’t want to ditch the bride and groom ‘cutting the cake’ tradition? Make a gigantic version of the smaller cupcakes, of course!

A real pudding lover

Maybe cake just doesn’t do it for you? Then you should try a croquembouche, or tower of profiteroles! It’s an original idea that will make sure that guests get at least one each, and who doesn’t love something that combines chocolate, cream and pastry?

Bold and bright

This cake creation certainly has personality. This Beatles-inspired cake needs no other decoration on the table around it, let alone on it! A real work of art.

Flower power

Do you love your bouquet? Why not incorporate that into your wedding cake? This simple base is topped by the beautiful selection of roses and daisies to make for a real country garden look.

Again with the cupcakes, but we love this couples’ idea to personalise the cases! They make a great keepsake for a wedding day.
