June 04, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there, sweet-toothed couples and dessert aficionados! Today, we're stirring up some tasty conversation about one of the most delicious aspects of wedding planning: the wedding cake. As West Midlands-based wedding photographers, we've had the pleasure of witnessing some truly mouthwatering cake trends, and we can't wait to share them with you.

First things first, let's address the age-old question: is the traditional fruit cake going out of fashion? While it may have been a staple at weddings of yesteryear, we're seeing a delightful shift towards more diverse and flavourful options. Gone are the days when couples felt obligated to keep the fruit cake for the christening—it's all about embracing your personal tastes and preferences.

Speaking of tastes, why settle for just one flavour when you can have a variety of flavours for each layer? That's right, we're all about mixing it up and tantalising those taste buds with layers of decadent chocolate, zesty lemon, and creamy vanilla. After all, your wedding cake should be as unique and delicious as your love story.

Now, let's talk about the rising popularity of the naked cake. With its rustic charm and exposed layers of sponge and frosting, the naked cake has become a favourite among couples seeking a more relaxed and natural aesthetic. Pair it with fresh berries or delicate floral arrangements for a truly Instagram-worthy dessert table.

But wait, there's more! We've recently seen a number of couples opt for rolls of cheese instead of traditional cake, and we're here for it. Not only does it offer a savoury twist on the classic dessert, but it also provides a fun and interactive element for guests to enjoy. Plus, who can resist a cheeseboard piled high with artisanal cheeses and mouthwatering accompaniments?

Of course, we understand that not every couple may choose to have a wedding cake, and that's perfectly okay! Whether you're serving up a tower of donuts, a decadent dessert bar, or even a savoury spread of appetisers, the most important thing is to choose what makes you happy and reflects your unique style as a couple.

So here's to celebrating love, laughter, and delicious desserts in all their forms. Whatever sweet treats you choose to indulge in on your special day, we'll be there to capture every scrumptious moment.

Bon appétit!
