All you need is love (and cake)

From naked cakes to painted cakes, cheese towers to macaroon masterpieces, the world of wedding cakes can be a confusing place. We've teamed up with The Grand's recommended wedding cake supplier Emily's Mixing Bowl to give you the low-down on the best styles from 2018.

Informal but Super-stylish

Naked (and semi-naked) cakes are perfect for a relaxed wedding. They offer the opportunity to decorate with seasonal fresh flowers and berries and can be easily customised to compliment your wedding colour scheme.

Simply Beautiful Florals

Hand-made sugar flowers can create a truly show-stopping effect that can be customised to fit your style, from the more traditional pastels to a brighter contemporary feel. A definite advantage to these flowers is that they will not wilt on a hot day and they can even be carefully stored and kept as a reminder of the Big Day.

Minimal and Modern

Buttercream cakes are the ideal choice for couples not so keen on traditional icing. This simple look, garnished with a few fresh flowers, is modern, clean and fuss-free - enough said!

All about the details
