If you are a person who likes to stick to tradition then you cannot go past a classic tiered fruit cake where you hold on to the top tier of the cake, freeze it and eat this tier on your first wedding anniversary.
If you prefer tradition but also want variety then a tier cake where the top tier remains fruit and the remaining tiers are flavoured may be for you. There are so many flavours to choose from such as chocolate, red velvet, white chocolate and raspberry, carrot, lemon, vanilla, really the options are endless.
If you are a bride that wants to consider a trendy alternative then the following cakes might be just what you are looking for:
Cupcake Tower – Cupcake towers are a popular alternative to tiered wedding cakes. You can add personal touches to your cupcakes by selecting a range of flavours, special cupcake toppers and the ease for guests to select a cupcake after the cutting of the cake.
Donut Cakes – Donuts are making a splash at wedding receptions. Donut cakes can be personalised by selecting icing that coordinates with your colour palette and adding beautiful fresh flowers to the cake.
Croquembouche – the height, the crunch of the toffee, the addition of fresh flowers for colour and style, no wonder the Croquembouche is a popular request for wedding cakes.
Tiered Fresh Fruit Cakes – no we are not talking about dried fruit and fondant. These fresh fruit cakes feature strawberries, figs, blueberries and even chocolate.
Macaron Tower – These french treats come in a beautiful range of colours and flavours. Have them placed on a tiered platter for a perfect wedding look.
