Wedding cake tips and advice

The blog

 

I’ve got a lot to say about wedding cakes. When ordering your wedding cake, there can be a lot more involved in the process than you might think. There are flavour decisions to make, a design process to go though and the ins and outs of wedding cake set up to consider too. Of course you can leave the work to me, but when investing in an edible centrepiece it’s important to consider all the elements that bring a wedding cake together and make it work.

The blog is a collection of articles giving you all the best advice on wedding cake design, set up, delivery and costing, helping you make decisions on things like your wedding cake flavours to cake stands as well as recommending other trusted suppliers I have worked and recommend in the industry too.
