I can’t deny that some of the wedding cakes these days are amazing – absolutely wonderful creations that quite rightly cost at least three month’s ordinary food budget. But sometimes I do baulk at the idea of spending six hundred pounds on what is essentially just a fancy cake.
One current trend to justify the cost is to do without a dessert at the reception and instead serving up the cake as pudding. The other option is to buy a simple store bought wedding cake. The one pictured is a three tier fruit cake costing £50 at Marks & Spencer and serves 74 people. Embellish it with some great decorations such as a floral display similar to this style – your florist could produce something that matches your display – or top with sugarcrafted displays to give it the wow factor.
