Designing a beautiful wedding cake


Designing a beautiful wedding cake with a couple is something I really enjoy doing.

To give you an idea of the process here are a few pointers to think about:

  • – the style or theme of your wedding
  • – your wedding colours
  • – how many are you catering for
  • – what would you like for your wedding cake


For a recent wedding cake I used the couple’s beautiful invitation to help design something unique for their wedding.

I took the beautiful duck egg blue and peach colours, tiny punch flowers and bird cake and love bird features from the invitation and incorporated them into the wedding cake design.

A wedding cake can be as personalised as you would like.  You don’t have to just pick from a book.  Be as creative as you like.


Here are a few ideas to send on to give me ideas-

– a copy of your invitation (promise I won’t land at your wedding!)

– an image of what your flowers might look like

– a pic of your dress which might have some detail like lace, flower design or sash to use

– anything else you might have in mind that could help.


I hope these ideas are helpful and good luck with all your plans.
