Suffolk Wedding Cakes - Creating the Cake of a lifetime

There’s a lot to consider when planning your wedding cake and here are our top tips for choosing yours:

Consider… colour
The Wedding Cake can be colour-co-ordinated to fit in with the bride’s dress, the flowers in her bouquet or even the wedding reception décor. Ensuring that your cake complements the colours of your wedding may seem trivial, but remember that the cake is often the main feature in wedding reception photographs – get the design right and “cutting the cake” will provide you with an excellent set of photographs, which will be cherished for the rest of your lives.

Gone is the traditional tiered pile of fruitcake and royal icing. Nowadays, wedding cakes come in all shapes and sizes, from a more modern or unusual take on the traditional tiered cake, to upside down tiered cakes, opulent, artistic designs and the ever-popular wedding cupcake.

Eye-catching cake holders, sugar paste flowers, mounds of juicy fruit, chocolate swirls and even ribbon and lace can all be used to create unique Wedding Cake designs that suits your personality and your wedding. We’ve even seen a wedding cake topped by a white chocolate skull!

Consider… size
Often, wedding guests are invited to enjoy a slice of cake during the wedding reception or to take a piece home with them, so the size of your cake will usually depend on the number of guests you plan to invite. If you’re planning to stick to tradition the bride & groom should take the top layer of a tiered wedding cake home to save until their first year anniversary. This will deduct from the amount of cake available for guests so always plan to feed more mouths than expected.

Consider… filling
These days you have a wide variety of choice as far as filling goes.
Are you going to go for a traditional fruitcake? Perhaps you’d like something lighter like vanilla sponge, or chocolate! If you can’t decide which is your favourite perhaps you’d like a mixture of all three. Speak to your Wedding Cake Maker about your filing preference. Don’t forget to check if any of your guests have a dietary condition.
