Sweet sensations

We're a nation of cake lovers, so choosing what to have for your wedding showstopper can be sticky! 

So many flavours - sweet or savoury, vegan-friendly or full-on sweet fix - what to do?! Dorset-based cake maker extraordinaire Sally Beedles of The Crumb Factory is here to help with news of all the latest trends and must-haves.

She says, "This year I'm seeing some wonderful new ideas coming through as well as continued love for some trends from last year. Here are few of my favourites."

STYLES
❤ Extravagance – my 2019 diary is filled with four- and five-tiered cakes full of textures like ruffles, sequins and glitter to give your wedding cake the wow factor.

❤ Semi-naked or buttercream-covered cakes remain a popular choice; adorned with fresh spring flowers and foliage. This style is perfect for couples on a budget and you can always add some colour to the icing for something a little different.

❤ Plaques and motifs are the perfect way to personalise your wedding cake and can come in a range of styles to suit your theme.

COLOURS
❤ Think blush pink, teamed with either grey or navy or even a marbled effect, which is still very popular.

❤ We can't ignore Pantone Colour of the Year Living Coral, although my preference is for a slightly paler tone or peach shade.

❤ Metallics – silver, gold, rose gold, copper, sequins and glitter for extra glamour.

FLAVOURS
With multiple tiers come multiple flavours so why not treat your guests to a selection? We have an extensive menu to choose from but these are our top three:

❤ Champagne and raspberry
❤ Lemon
❤ Salted caramel
