Make a striking style statement by getting creative with your cake - it's so easy to do!


#1 A pastel palette

The couple: Claire and Jaymie

They say: "The cake table featured a sweet spread, including macarons, flying saucers and cupcakes, and our cake, featuring a lace trim on each tier, was topped with sugar flowers."

#2 A striking backdrop

The couple: Tally and Blake

Our show-stopping cake was a prominent feature of the day, it reminded me of a piece of china I loved from my childhood, and looked amazing displayed against a towering wall of greenery.

#3 Bring the indoors out

The couple: Sam and Tyler

They say: We had two cakes, one was carrot cake – which is Tyler's favourite – and the other was a champagne-flavoured sponge finished with soft pink buttercream icing.
