Your wedding is also described as the best day of your life, and maybe it’s the biggest party you’re ever going to throw, so make sure you remember it.
Without a cake, no party is full, and the wedding cake industry has exploded in recent years with designs becoming increasingly stunning (think metallic colours) and complex (layers and ruffles). The Knot talks about all the new wedding cake design trends, but a cake is more than that.
It’s just as important how a cake tastes, if not more so than how it looks, so it’s worth spending some time studying tastes. Maybe you’d like to be a little adventurous! Make your cake different and offer something for your guests to talk about. Choose a single flavour throughout the whole cake, or try a mix-and-match strategy on each tier to choose complementary or contrasting flavours. Organic Vanilla Extract from Foodie Flavours is a great flavour to go for.
Sponge is a favourite of the wedding cake since it’s easy to layer and blends well with buttercream and icing layers. Chocolate is always going to be a favourite with every cake, but by upgrading to an indulgent and rich sponge in Ultimate Belgian Chocolate, you can make it extra special. Layer it with buttercream with either chocolate or vanilla and enjoy!
Try a caramel-infused sponge by taking the Belgian chocolate sponge in another direction. At the moment, salted caramel is everywhere, and why not get your wedding cake? Layer the sponges in salted caramel with plenty of delicious caramel sauce and buttercream, too.
