Snowstopping bakes

We asked Sarah Yearsley of Cheshire Wedding Cakes to suggest a showstopping winter-wedding bake. Here are her fabulous ideas. 

"Winter can be such a magical time of the year for a wedding, especially around Christmas.  When it comes to designing a showstopper wedding cake there is so much inspiration to draw on during this time of the year! I tend to think of the colours and textures used for decorating Christmas trees. Gone are the days of clashing baubles, tinsel and novelty decorations. I’m thinking deep reds and greens with berries and gold, jewel tones with gold leaf, or silver with frosty white and glitter. 

"I made a wedding cake last year that would fit in perfectly with a white winter wonderland theme. This cake had tiers of varying textures, using icing-like material, pearls and silver lustres to add a sheen, all finished off with a ruffle ball on the top to bring more height. Another idea is to add sugar flowers, which can be made to match your bouquet and can look amazing with the addition of some berries and frosted pinecones. To personalise your cake, why not add your names or initials with a bit of metallic gold or silver.

"Winter can also be reflected in the flavours you choose for your wedding cake. Rich fruit cake is an obvious one, but think of indulgent desserts like sticky toffee pudding or chocolate orange brownie.
