Tie your wedding theme into the big-day bake

The buzzword when it comes to the 2020s wedding is without doubt “personality.” Couples are seeking to reflect their characters in every inch of their special day, making it a unique experience for them and their guests, as well as an all-out celebration of their love. And rightly so!

One aspect you can use to achieve this with aplomb is your cake. In fact, today’s big-day bakes are works of art – showstopping centrepieces. You get to have a say on everything from the flavour to the topper, so have fun and go wild! We talked to the region’s experts to get you started on your journey to sweet success.

"We love to personalise our cakes by copying the lace detail in a bride's dress, or making delicate sugar flowers that replicate the bridal bouquet."

"Use your wedding stationery as a base for your cake's design. Add a personalised monogram, hand paint some details from the invitation or add colour and textural elements to bring everything together."
– Kate, Little Button Bakery

"For couples who want to express their fun-loving sides, without losing the elegance of the design, we love to hide objects such as potion bottles, pet figurines or monopoly pieces amongst the sugar flowers or to include badges and logos in piped lacework."
– Alison, Alison Loves to Bake

"Extra tall tiers are set to be a top trend. Square tiers have also made a comeback and incorporating textural elements to mimic natural material, such as stone and marble, is becoming huge."
– Kate, Little Button Bakery

"Try to tie the season into your cake's flavours. Fruity, fresh choices for spring and summer weddings or more warming, rich flavours work brilliantly for autumn and winter nuptials."
– Kate, Little Button Bakery

"Your wedding cake can be a fantastic opportunity to tie together multiple elements of your wedding day. Think theme colours and sugar flowers that replicate those in your bouquets or button holes."
– Nicola Thomas, Boutique Bakery

"Wedding cakes don't have to be iced in white or pastel hues anymore. Try adding some bold colours or metallics to your design."
– Kate, Little Button Bakery

"In the last few years more and more couples are choosing a fully-themed wedding cake, reflecting books, films and hobbies. If you're brave enough to adorn every tier with themed imagery, you can be sure that people will still be talking about your cake in years to come."
– Alison, Alison Loves to Bake

"A deep midnight blue or even black cake is the perfect choice for the couple looking to achieve a wow factor. Metallics are also popular, with a shift back to more traditional gold and silver tones, which are particularly elegant for winter dates."
– Nicola Thomas, Boutique Bakery
