This style is just as much about the floral decoration as it is about the cake itself. I like the painstakingly perfect white curls of this three tier round but it is the gentle clusters of coloured roses on top and in between that set it off.
Flowers are an easy way to bring your colours into the cake and can be made as simple or as extravagent as you like. This one is just right though – the cake appears to be floating on the flowers. ‘Cliveden’ by Purita Hyam, three tiers serves 120 from £495.
