Wedding Cake(s)

As a cake-focused blogger, when you get married the cake is going to be a central aspect of an ceremony. But what happens when you can’t narrow the different types down?

Well, this.

I knew as a slightly fanatical baker, that I wanted cake to be a central feature of my wedding, and so I decided to have a Great British Bake-Off style cake competition. So I suggested the ideas to my guests, and as you can tell they responded fantastically.

The contestants were asked to bring and decorate  a cake of their choice, with two prize being awarded – one for taste and one for decoration. Here are some of the amazing entries we had!

      1. Fantastic. I think if we definitely go for this option it will also make a great centre piece in the room especially if we get the lighting to highlight it.

      2. Its a great focal point – we had it on the dance floor for the day and then moved it to the side for the evening reception. By having a competition attached it also meant that the guests had an activity for the afternoon part and it encouraged a lot of conversation.
