Traditionally wedding cakes were 3 tiered fruit cakes. Nowadays in an ever increasingly cosmopolitan society the wedding cake can be any shape, colour, flavour and size; you may even choose to have small caricature figures on the top. It is becoming increasingly popular to have all tiers of the cake different flavours: chocolate, lemon, vanilla sponge, carrot cake or even made of meringue or profiteroles (croquembouche).
Your cake should be ordered well in advance, at least 6 months before the wedding. You will need to supply details of the
number of guests, the bride’s dress colour, the bridesmaid’s dress colour and the colour of your flowers. Most confectioners will deliver and set up your cake for a modest charge, ensuring peace of mind on the day.
The Bride and Groom should make the first cut of the cake to signify their life together which now lies ahead of them. The top tier of a rich fruit cake is usually kept for the christening of the first child.
