Cake Style

6. Classic

Sometimes a plainer cake can make just as much as an impact as a decorative one. Stripped back, chic classic styles have made a comeback this year – when less certainly is more!

How gorgeous is this classic cake by Cake Style pictured? We imagine it would look fab in an urban setting, at a black tie wedding, or traditional wedding.

7. Pink

Pretty in pink – candy coloured wedding cakes are feminine, girly and fun. Pink is a popular wedding-theme, particularly during the spring and summer months, so why not tie in the look with a pink cake?

Christine’s Cakes have created this gift box style wedding cake in shades of pink, white and grey – ideal for a Christmas wedding.
