Let’s face it, most of us spend the months leading up to our wedding day on a strict diet of lemon water, as much fruit and veg as we can stomach, and not a lot else! We certainly try to steer clear of cake! Perhaps this is one of the reasons we put so much thought into our wedding cake!
But with so many different types, what type of cake do you go for?
Gone are the days where everyone has a 3 tier fruit cake, where the top layer is to be frozen until your first baby’s christening.
Naked cakes are huge at the moment! We do love a good naked cake…
Cupcake, cake pops and cake jars are also popular…
I think your wedding cake needs to fit in with your theme…...
Add cheeky reference to you. Cake toppers which look like the happy couple on the wedding day are great! …...
Although Brides, make sure you don’t show anyone who hasn’t already seen your dress!
Cheese cakes are also lots of fun! If you’re not a huge fan of traditional cake, then why not have a cheese cake?
Whatever cake you end up going for, you need a pretty back drop and good stand! A barrel, in my opinion is perfect! And make sure you get the all important photo of you cutting the cake. And make sure you actually cut the cake together, don’t just pose, it’s good luck!
The St Mawes Classic Car Festival is now in its 7th year. The Festival invites owners of classic cars down to the picturesque coastal village of St Mawes where each day over the festival period, owners are given the opportunity for some wonderful scenic drives around Cornwall’s coastline, stopping off at areas of outstanding beauty and sampling some of Cornwall’s finest food on offer. There is more information on their website, www.nearwaterevents.co.uk and photographs from previous years.
