What we love about wedding cakes is that they can be as unique as the couple being celebrated. From classic to contemporary, bohemian to luxurious, there is a wedding cake perfect for any wedding theme. Here are some of our favourite bohemian bites to get you inspired.
Pretty Little Things
Many couples are choosing bite-size delights instead of a traditional tiered cake. Cupcakes and macarons are the perfect mouthful of scrumptious splendour and offer a unique alternative. You can display them beautifully on a layered tray, decorating each one in miniature or ask your cake designer to create a tower of tantalising temptation.
The naked cake has made a big splash in the wedding world, particularly for those planning a boho, country or rustic-styled wedding. If you don't want a completely naked cake, opt for a semi-naked cake, where the icing is applied unevenly, allowing the cake to peek through from underneath. Pair this cake with flowers and fresh fruit.
Work Of Art
Hand-painting is a great way to add intricate artistic design to your cake. Designs can range from delicate hand painted flowers, to impressionist-style watercolours, there really are no limitations with this style creation.
Add an element of whimsy with some delightful drizzles on your big day. Up the ante with some florals, fondant or fruit.
This year is all about texture and lashings of flowers atop any masterpiece. We are seeing a return of big fluffy flowers like peonies, David Austin roses and dahlias and delicate blooms like lilies and orchids.
Pay homage to the bounty of Mother Nature and invoke a harvest festival vibe for your cake, by finishing it off with lashings of luscious fresh fruit.
