We put the all-important questions to our experts... this time we quizzed Katy from Quintessential Cakes.
Q How do I incorporate my vibrant colour scheme into my cake design?
Katy says: So, you’re not a pastel kind of couple? No worries, the cake doesn’t have to be something you buy because you think you need one or because of the photo opportunity it presents. Practically anything goes with wedding cakes, they can be a real expression of who you are and your journey as a couple. I had a couple recently that came in for something plain and by the end of the consultation we had a life-sized Hedwig owl sitting atop their cake!
It’s very common to choose colours that run throughout your day from the invitations to bridesmaids’ dresses and table dressings. Don’t forget the cake is something else you can use to highlight your colour palette. Vibrant hues can be hand-painted on to your cake or included in a floral arrangement. It’s possible that you might want to remember a loved one who can’t be there on your big day, but their favourite colour was yellow. In this case a nice bright sunflower is a winner.
Sitting down with your cake designer is an absolute must, and don’t forget, we’re creative folk and love a challenge!
