Here at Wedding Ideas we’re always on the look-out for gorgeous wedding cakes, so we couldn’t resist an invitation to the recent Langs of London launch event at The Bloomsbury Hotel in London.

The magnificent centrepiece of the event was a breathtaking 10-tier wedding cake which was decorated with over 500 individually handcrafted sugar flowers, which took 150 man hours to create!


Rising to more than 7 feet, it weighed in excess of 20Kg and cost a staggering £5,000 – a real show-stopping centrepiece for any glamorous reception.

Of course Wedding Ideas couldn’t resist a nibble of the other cakes on offer including Langs’ most popular flavours, Lavender, Chocolate with Rum Buttercream, Vanilla Rose and Sicilian Lemon. Lavender was our favourite of the bunch, with its gorgeous colouring and deliciously light and summery taste – a real hit for spring/summer weddings in 2014 and the perfect inspiration for your colour theme.


Whether you’re looking for a classic or a contemporary cake design for your big day, Langs of London have got it covered. They also specialise in statement cakes – the piece de résistance of any reception, and something that will have your guests talking for years to come!

  1. I spent £200 on ours and thank goodness it wasnt more because it never turned up. made me realise it would never of been worth spending so much on a wedding cake personally because nobody cared anyway, the whole day was perfect. if Id had no budget however, im not saying I wouldn’t get a fancy cake 😉 x

  2. What a waste of money. Its not even that great. My wedding cake cost a fraction of the price and was so special. It was 100% designed for us by a great lady Mary Hnatyszyn-wight and was made with such love care and attention. It was one of my favourite things about our day.

  3. My mum made ours because she used to do wedding cakes and catering for a living. It cost her quite a bit for the ingredients with being a fruit cake with booze in, but nothing like the price of buying one in a traditional wedding cake (maybe £200ish at a guess?). However, if I hadn’t had someone to do that I think I would have bought those tiers you can get from m&s and decorated it myself-seems ridiculous to spend a huge amount on something that will just be eaten.
