If you are looking for an alternative cake for your wedding, rather than the more traditional cakes on offer then we have the perfect solution. This vanilla sponge packed with strawberries and cream will definitely set your pulse racing.
Maria & mark chose this cake for their summer wedding here in Spain and as temperatures soared up into the late 30’s it was the perfect choice to be served as dessert at their wedding breakfast.
The heart shaped cake was set on display whilst we made a back up cake hidden away for cutting only, but no less delicious….Yum! We even remembered to cater for those celiac guests too..
Silly though it may seem I always get over excited when I am asked to supply a cake & treats table for a wedding, as this is where edible inspiration tends to take over. Given a brief of “lots of pearls, roses, soft pink, gold with a hint of vintage” I set to work.
To begin with I created some pretty bespoke gold bespoke cupcake wrappers and petal cones to add texture and a splash of gold to the table. Added to this were a couple of candlesticks I picked up at a local flee market that I sprayed gold – these added height to the table as well as colour.
The five tier cake was accompanied by one or two other delightful treats. Raspberry & white chocolate cupcakes decorated with vintage sugar broaches, together with choc-chip cake-pops drenched in white chocolate then dusted with gold dust.
‘Love’ was sprinkled over the table using letters and signage…
…and finally my dear friend Shona provided the beautiful fresh roses, and rose petals to add the finishing touch to the table.
Yesterday Karen & Daryl said their ‘I do’s’ in the warm April sunshine here in Spain. Karen chose a bold colour scheme of bright orange and silver with stunning ‘Birds of Paradise as her wedding flower choice.
The cake choice was a selection of silver and orange cupcake shoes, displayed on a shoe boxes to match.
Still as popular as ever this year is the naked wedding cake, oozing with fresh fruit, cream and loveliness what is not to like about these cakes? Adding to the naked cake family we have introduced naked cupcakes and their sister cakes- naked minis..Oh so pretty!
If you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, a naked cupcake, again, bares all as it is simply topped off with a choice of available fresh fruit. The naked mini cake is a ‘mini-me’ version of the larger cake. Choosing either of these options for a wedding cake are certain to compliment most wedding styles, venues or themes, but most importantly they shout ‘eat me’. You will have very little waste if you opt for these edible delights at your wedding.

Or perhaps you prefer a less conventional style of displaying your mini cakes.

..And finally, you can even have naked cupcakes – here displayed using crates and pallets, adding accents of olive greenery and pretty babys breath.

Cupcakes are an increasingly popular alternative to a more traditional cake, more so today than ever. Although the basic cupcake remains the same, the way in which we display cupcakes has certainly changed. As more and more weddings are styled and influenced by the latest trends, we have had to think outside the box a little when exploring ways to style and showcase our wedding cupcakes.
We are finding the more conventional cupcake stand to be much less popular being replaced by a more unconventional approach to cupcake styling and display.
We have plenty of styles to inspire and share with you for your cupcake display, take a look at some of our exciting cupcake styling ideas.
