You know exactly how many tiers you want your cake to be and you’re already picturing it adorned with fresh flowers, but have you considered what flavour it’s going to be? Gone are the days where couples were restricted to traditional fruit cake, which as tasty as it is, not everyone is a fan of it. Brides and grooms are instead opting for more daring, delicious flavour combinations that will leave your mouth watering and your tummy rumbling! Discover our favourite flavours for luxury wedding cakes…
If you’ve opted for a wedding cake design with more than one tier, you can have fun with your sponge flavour and mix it up with each tier. You can also give your guests a lovely surprise by creating a cake that looks understated and elegant, but it’s full of exotic and extravagant flavours that will tantalise the taste buds.
There are hundreds of flavour combinations to choose from so if something takes your fancy, please do mention it to me to see if we can create the cake of your dreams.
Strawberries & Champagne
If you’re planning an ultra-elegant affair, you need a wedding cake to match! The perfect choice for a stylish summer celebration, strawberries and champagne promises a delicate fruit-infused flavour for you and your guests to enjoy with a glass of bubbles. This is a scrumptious choice if you want something rather sweet and the light, fresh sponge effortlessly compliments the season.
Lemon & Elderflower
The newlyweds, Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, opted for a wedding cake with lemon and elderflower-flavoured sponge and this delightful combination is set to stay in the spotlight. A hugely popular choice for a spring or summer soirée, this is the perfect combination if you want to add a touch of royalty to your celebration. A floral twist on the traditional lemon sponge, the elderflower softens the zest creating a cake that will leave you and your guests wanting more.
