We asked Lindsay Albon from Cheshire wedding cake supplier White Lace Cakes for her advice on how to personalise the big-day bake. Check out what she had to say.
How can we personalise our big-day bake to bring our story to life and highlight the romance?
In years gone by, the most popular way of personalising a wedding cake was by adding a replica bride and groom topper. Many couples still choose to do this, but with new and creative twists. We’ve seen everything from crotched Mr and Mrs dolls to little peg people and mini Lego figures.
There are many alternatives to making your cake truly yours. Bringing in the theme of your day is a real showstopping way to do this. For example, match lace elements from the dress or incorporate features of the table settings. You could even colour coordinate the bake’s embellishments, and replicate your flowers either in sugar or as real blooms. We’re seeing more couples opting for their initials in a monogram feature, which is often designed to reflect the wedding invitations or place names.
Your big-day bake is a blank canvas, and can become a real statement piece. It’s an edible piece of art that brings the whole wedding to life.
