11 Festive Bakes To Jewel Your Christmas Table!
‘Tis the season!! It’s that time of year whether we’re eating it or baking it the classic flavours of Christmas are what help us get in the festive spirit and your winter wedding should be no exception! Why not go all out and fashion your very own festive feast dessert table for your big day?! After all, weddings and Christmas are both a time for utter indulgence and we have some sweet tooth treats that you and your guests will love!
TIERED SHOWSTOPPER / CAKE ALTERNATIVE
Customising your big day is one of the great pleasures of wedding planning and creating something unique to you! Yet with elements such as your wedding cake, couples often feel constrained to the traditional iced 3 tiered cakes. When it comes to your wedding cake you should feel just as if not more creative with this decision and is the perfect opportunity to share your favourite tastes with your guests or maybe even give them a new experience! If you’re worried about the wow factor, modern desserts will look just as spectacular in height, colour and decoration. This tiered delicate Pavlova adheres to the traditional white wedding look a cake should have and jewelled with ripe raspberries, the contrasting finish is totally elegant, wouldn’t you agree?
FESTIVE SINGLE TIER
Since the one tier wonder has taken centre stage for a lot of modern couples this year, a festive touch on top of your crumbed and buttercream coated cake can go a long way to tempting your guests. Make mini gingerbread houses and scatter with coconut to create the ultimate snowy scene or if your feeling a little more ambitious show off your chocolate craft with a bark effect cake collar of tempered white chocolate.
