Tiered, tiny or bespoke; these cakes make a real style statement
Be it a bespoke stunner or a simple single-tier cake, there is something really magical about selecting your edible centrepiece. To help you make your decision, we’ve chosen a few dreamy cakes that are sure to inspire.
Sometimes less is more, so consider a selection of single-tier cakes on a dessert table instead of just one big statement cake. If you’re having a daytime wedding during the warmer months, avoid cakes iced with ganache or delicate chocolate details, which may melt.
