A confession first of all today everyone: I’ve been gazing at the images for this wedding blog post (possibly dribbling a little) for quite a long time. I should have been typing but a mixture of admiration and hunger stopped me in my tracks! Today I’m sharing the best wedding cakes I’ve seen all year – seriously these are damned impressive and then some!

My favourite! Au Naturale is a stack of Madagascan vanilla sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and fruity raspberry jam, with a long glossy red ribbon bow, which draped down the length of the cake creates a bold and striking focal point.

Designer wedding cakes from Cakes by Beth

Designer Beth is modest about her wedding cakes, and I suspect she’s blushing already but I really do admire her creativity, attention to detail and the passion she pours into her wedding cakes business. Beth is based in the North West, has exhibited and given demonstrations at top events like The Cake & Bake Show and designed cakes for high profile events and many, many weddings.

Good morning! Who likes cake? And have you chosen your wedding cake yet? I’ve picked some of my favourite wedding cakes from all the real weddings on English Wedding blog over the last few months, and thought it would be a great way to get a little wedding cake gallery going!
