Achieve sweet success with Boutique Bakery

Do you have a sweet tooth without being a huge cake fan? This can cause a dilemma when it comes to the wedding showstopper. To cake or not to cake? We asked Nicola from Boutique Bakery for her advice on the matter. Read on to discover her mouthwatering suggestions.

Ombre macaron tower topped with a single layer of cake for cutting by Boutique Bakery in Chester Credit: www.simedlicott.co.uk"A macaron tower is the perfect alternative to a traditional wedding cake, providing an unusual and beautiful centrepiece. You can choose to have your macarons all one colour, include hand-painted details, or even opt for a multi-shade ombré effect running up the height of the tower.  As each macaron is no more than a mouthful or two, why not play around with the flavours too - they can all be the same or you can decide between a wide variety of tastes, such as salted caramel, raspberry, pistachio, coffee, vanilla, chocolate or honey – there are so many possibilities!

"If you’d still like to include a traditional element to your tower, why not top it with an iced cake? Not only does it give you the opportunity for fabulous cake cutting photographs, but you also get the best of both worlds. If you’d like to add a little more decoration to your tower, they can look fabulous festooned with fresh flowers, or equally stunning topped with a single statement sugar bloom."
