Hello there!

I recently had the rare opportunity to bend the ear and pick the brain of a top class wedding cake designer who displayed some of her wonderful creations at one of our recent Wedding Open Days. It was too good an opportunity to miss, so I just delved in and got it from the horse’s mouth – this year’s top trends.

Soft pastels

Soft pastels are definitely an in-demand colour for weddings in 2015. Think soft lemon, pearl, pistachio, orchid tint. Looking at cakes on Pinterest, one idea that seems to be quite popular is choosing a different shade for each layer, creating a wedding cake with a colour gradient from light to dark.

Wedding cakes are no longer just elegant tiers of royal icing with simple or sugarpaste flowers. They’re statements, talking points and reflections of your personalities.

And as with everything in weddings, fashions come and go. Cakes are exciting.

Tiers are out… and then they’re in. And then it’s cheese, and then cheesecake, then cakes get naked, or half-naked, or everyone has cupcakes then towers of croquembouche… and bloggers say don’t bother with a wedding cake. What’s a bride and groom to do?! If there’s one thing writing the English Wedding Blog has taught me, it’s that cake is important to me. I’m a cake lover – and not just for my sweet tooth but for the beautiful, breathtaking wedding cake designs I get to see every single day. Call me lucky! 🙂

UK wedding cake designers are the best in the world. My favourite cake designers are all based in the UK, and there’s so much choice in wedding cakes you’ll never struggle to find one you love! Gone are the days when designers were limited by convention; ingredients for a modern wedding cake include folklore, nature and Russian jewellery boxes – at least according to the fabulous Rosalind Miller Cakes!

A Winter Garden – Rosalind Miller Cakes

Rosalind Miller’s Winter Garden wedding cake is a true showstopper; the ideal statement cake for a winter wedding celebration. I love icy blues and silver for a winter wedding; the delicate styling and flower stems of this cake make it both intricate and striking.

Ring O Roses Rosalind Miller Cakes

For a floral wedding cake and an English garden wedding style, I just love the Ring O Roses cake – inspired by a nursery rhyme, it has a pretty simplicity and girlish colours which work beautifully together.

Apologies everyone for the cheesy title to this blog post. I’m overheating and in a giggly mood! I have a very special blog feature this morning for you – delicious and money-saving, written (and styled and photographed!) by wedding experts and with beautiful images. And for cheese lovers, this is just perfect. Tasting box, anyone? Oooh….

Imagine a tiered tower of artisan cheeses, hand-selected to create a perfectly balanced cheeseboard, and cared for by their dedicated cheesemongers to arrive in peak condition for your wedding day. What a fabulous centrepiece with a difference for your wedding breakfast!

The Fine Cheese Co. have just launched their new Cheese Wedding Cake Brochure. They certainly love their cheese. They know what tastes fabulous and how to make it look stunning. Cheese deserves to be the centre of attention too!

“If you want your cake to be all English, then try their Georgina; a striking cake made entirely from English cheeses, both traditional and modern.”

Morning everyone! I’m back to old habits… wedding cake for breakfast again, damn! Hehe… I wish. Although something tells me I’ll be craving cake later today, having spent the last half hour devouring Caroline’s gorgeous wedding cakes with my eyes while my tummy rumbles pathetically at me! Seriously though, you need to see these.

New for 2014, this floral white wedding cake really looks the part. Deliciously clean and white, with decadence in the romantic flower petals – a wedding cake with character and flamboyance

Cake designer Caroline Black decided to follow her heart and begin studying cake decorating. Armed with baking experience gained as a child within the family, more formal training and lots of trial and error she now specialises in creative, custom designed celebration cakes, creating cakes with contemporary designs that are also delicious!

Hey! Is anyone else feeling a little cakey this morning? I have a lovely new discovery to share with you – Jane Rose Cakes. I have been chatting to Jane on my facebook page and I asked her if I could please show you a photo or two of her gorgeous wedding cakes. And the lovely lady said yes!

Jane’s cakes are already making a splash on Pinterest and I’m sure we’ll see the wedding magazines fighting to share her beautiful creations. So I feel ever so privileged to be introducing you to her today. I just love how delicate and beautiful these wedding cakes look!

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.
