Time for tempting treats… we’re feeling inspired (and hungry) by our pick of the six of the best, most scrumptious real-wedding cakes…
It’s been emotional… even the wedding cake was in tiers… So much more than just something you eat, your wedding cake is the centrepiece and crowning glory of your entire wedding breakfast – it might even set the tone for the whole occasion. Don’t miss this delicious opportunity to personalise! We take a trip down memory lane and share a slice or two of our favourite real-wedding cakes…

Tom and Jess stayed true to their love of the waves with this sensational electric-blue and lemon tiered wave cake! We love the inspired use of golden granulated sugar for the sandy shores too!
A classic cream tiered cake gets pride of place with a spectacular backdrop of sparkling fairy lights. Don’t forget to showcase your cake in style… place it in front of an oversized gilded mirror for another fabulous way to make a statement with your cake.
Consider how to make the most of a stunning cake in the surroundings you have and considering your overall theme. This classic Alice In Wonderland-style Victoria sponge is perfectly situated on top of a barrel and decorated with petals and tea lights – perfect for this country-rustic theme.
When it comes to decorating your cake, get creative! Take inspiration from nature and combine colours and textures to complement your style. We love the use of ‘figs and sprigs’ on this drip-style cake. And these lights will keep the cake shining bright all night!
This glorious real-wedding cake shot goes to show how special the ‘cutting of the cake’ moment is for any wedding album. Discuss with your photographer ahead of time at what point in the night they will finish – many will cover the first dance but make sure their package includes this moment with the cake. An exposed brick wall backdrop and an oversized floral display will always look big-day stunning!
Bunting and berries look glorious decorating this cake, and we love the sunflower blooms and little jars of tiny white flowers. Add two candelabra either side of the cake and keep the lights low for a magical effect!
