Urban Wedding Cakes

Feb 28, 2018

The time is now for urban weddings. We got married in the city in September 2014. We could have chosen a country house with all the traditions. But then that’s not ‘us’. We wanted a blank canvas venue we could put our stamp on.

Urban Wedding Locations

The great thing about so many city venues are that they are a blank canvas. Take Hoxton Arches, for example. An amazingly airy, brick warehouse space with character adding arches. A space begging to be dressed up or dressed down exactly as the bride and groom want it. Or Take Islington Metal Works. An urban wonderland of ready made kitschiness with its random placement of many a found object.

Urban Wedding cakes to celebrate your fun and modern style

And that’s where urban wedding cakes come in. Would a traditional white wedding cake fit in here? Or would a wedding cake to reflect the couple’s style and personality? An edible centre piece reflecting current trends that’s something completely different to the wedding cake at the last wedding they went to. A talking point and something to celebrate their fun and modern style.

Cake trends tend to follow fashion. The trends around for metallics, industrial interiors, bold colours and geometric style are still very much alive for 2018.

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.
