Why You Should Opt for a Design Led Wedding Cake

May 17, 2019

In an age of Instagram and Pinterest, there is a plethora of beautiful wedding cakes, but you may find that they all look similar having done so for the past few years. Think semi naked or traditionally iced, yes they look lovely but I bet you’ve seen it a million times before?

Picture your guests turning up at your reception and they literally stop in their tracks in awe of your showstopper of a wedding cake. Imagine their surprise at this spectacular, beautiful and unique wedding cake. Visible to see with influences of current trends, architecture and inspiration that they’ve never seen before at other weddings.

Pulling inspiration from many different sources, you will see elements from architecture, current trends, fashion, interiors and anything that sparks my creativity. By combining these elements with my creative approach, I can guarantee that your cake will not only tickle your guests’ taste buds but have them ‘gramming it and talking about your cake for years.

What are Design Led Wedding Cakes?

Design led cakes are modern, inspired and stunning. The ideology behind design led thinking is to create a solution based approach, or rather in wedding cake terms, to create a visual masterpiece that not only ties together every element of your wedding but also the essence of you both.

I work with modern couples looking for a stylish stunning masterpiece of a wedding cake. 

I will take your ideas, inspiration and combine them with my experience, skill and ideas to create your perfect wedding cake. Every cake that I create is as individual as the couples that I design the cake for. I love coming up with new ideas and creating something amazing with unique design elements. The cake I design for you will definitely be Instagram worthy! 

So say no to the standard pretty cake and go for a design led masterpiece instead.

About the writer and cake enthusiast…

Hi! I’m Katie and I have been fully cake obsessed since, forever…

Malarkey Cakes is built on a mixture of all my passions. My work is inspired by my background in art and design and I’m honoured to make wedding cakes for couples in love in London and the South East.

I’m passionate about blogging to share my knowledge and give guidance on the ins and out of ordering a wedding cake, making the most of it and making sure it gets the attention it deserves. I also share my tips on wedding planning and team up with fellow suppliers I am lucky enough to work with and who I highly recommend.

When I’m not designing, making or eating cake, you’ll find me trying out new food in London’s amazing restaurants, drinking great coffee, taking in stunning architecture, on long walks, smashing a decent weights workout or exploring the world.
