We love cakes here at Bridalwave, especially wedding cakes. And with the excitement of the forthcoming royal wedding (do we dare say of the royal wedding of the century…) on 29th April 2011 , our sweet-toothy nature can’t help to wonder what the choice of cake will be.
Will Catherine and William go with a traditional tiered masterpiece that fits with their choice of venue, Westminster Abbey, or will the couple throw tradition out the window and choose a more modern and trend led design? Since the specific details are still very much hush hush – we do expect there will be cake though! – Sarah Howells of Rosie and Richards has shared her ideas and inspirations for the wedding cake.
As a modern couple who still value tradition, Howells would love to see Prince William and Catherine take a modern twist on a traditional royal wedding cake: “Perhaps a tower of elegant cupcakes in shades of springtime decorated with iced flowers that match the blooms in the bouquet, or an opulent chocolate torte tower topped with spring berries and edible sugared flowers.”
Now the latter one sounds absolute delicious. There’s nothing like chocolate – and lots of it!
If you’re looking for inspiration for your own wedding cake, the crème de la crème of cake designers will be at The National Wedding Show in London (February) and Birmingham (March) to offer up gems of advice and services.
