The 5 best wedding cakes to consider for your big day!
Weddings are always an event to remember, and the biggest day of your life would simply be incomplete without the little things – the venue, the dresses and suits, the décor and the cake are all vital aspects of the day, that your guests will recall for years to come. When choosing your wedding cake, it’s important to consider what flavours will compliment the rest of the food to be served, and what decorations will match your venue.
Red velvet cakes are one of the most popular wedding cakes, as the red colour is perfect for an eternal symbol of your love and passion for one another. A red velvet wedding cake goes well with cream cheese icing and all-white decorations, which often adds to the mystery of the flavour within.
Chocolate cakes are and always will be a classic, suitable for every type of occasion – including weddings. Chocolate wedding cakes are great as they offer a lot of flexibility with richness and options for flavour accents. You could keep it simple with just chocolate, or add in subtle hints of orange or mint to make it special. Either way, your guests will be satisfied.
Raspberry and white chocolate
A popular flavour combination for wedding cakes is raspberry and white chocolate. Tart raspberries paired with sweet and rich white chocolate can make an amazing cake for your big day – you can choose what form the raspberries come in, from jam to cream to actual raspberries on the top. This wedding cake option is perfect for those chocolate lovers that want something with a twist for their wedding day.
Lemon sponge cakes have always been a classic wedding choice – the light flavour is perfect for spring weddings and is a good option for those that don’t want any flavours that are too rich or indulgent. You can either have a lemon sponge or just lemon flavoured icing – you can even pair your lemon wedding cake with other fruity flavours for a fresh twist on a classic.
For those that want a cake that will please just about everyone, look no further than a simple and delicious vanilla sponge. You can make this as plain or exciting as you like – vanilla goes with practically anything, so adorn your cake with fruit, chocolate or flavoured icing if you wish.
