From a mono filigree fantasy the sky’s the limit for the wedding ake of your dreams


Gone are the days when t fficient to signal the end of a wedding breakfast. For today’s couples, the tiered and pill

have been replac d by elaboratel­y decorated cakes with adventurou­s ingred ents. ‘Textured finishes, such as marbling or bas-relief, ar more popular than plain white icing, and we’re seeing a greater demand for gourmet flavours,’ says the cake desi ner Rosalind Miller, whose latest range includes pear, whit chocolate and cardamom. Geor

ained pastry chef who has catered for Cara Delevingne, among others, is influenced by seasonal fruits and flowers: ‘Rose, elderflowe­r and lemon work well for spring weddings – I’ll use pastel shades such as pale pinks and blues, finished with some fresh blooms.’

Couples are increasing­ly looking to stand out from the crowd with bespoke designs, notes Fehintola Bolodeoku of Monannie Cakes. ‘I’ve been asked to make everything from a Game of Thrones-themed centrepiec­e to a peacock with a cascade of feathers,’ she reveals. ‘Monogrammi­ng a couple’s initials onto the icing is another way to add a personal touch.’ The cake, however, is only part of the story: ‘Many weddings now feature a dessert table, laid with everything from macarons and profiterol­es to éclairs and cookies. It makes for a real talking point.’ fh Confection by Rosalind Miller (www.confection­byrosalind­; Georgia’s Cakes (; Monannie Cakes (www.monannieca­
