Wedding Inspiration: Cakes

I’ve never been too fussed with having a perfectly coifed wedding cake, so for our wedding we’ve chosen to go with something really simple and rustic-y, which a dear friend is kindly whipping up for us.

We (and when I say “we” I mean “I” – my fiance couldn’t care less for cake) were inspired by the simple but pretty looking cakes above. I love the look of icing that’s been roughly applied with the back of a knife and the addition of only a few decorations, like some wildflowers or fruit.

I’d love to know: what’s your favourite cake flavour? Thinking we might go for red velvet cake with vanilla icing (yum!) but I’m also a big fan of a good ol’ moist (ekk) chocolate mudcake.

What do you think?

    Claire: I am a sucker for a good choc mud…. And yep, was thinking we could do a cheese wheel stack as well for the savoury lovers. xx
