We're having a relaxed wedding in July. What style of cake would suit our day?

For laid-back nuptials, lots of couples would automatically choose a buttercream style – but there are considerations to be made. If the wedding is outside or in a marquee on a hot day, then the cake won't last long in the heat. Timing is key, as you won't be able to have your bake on display all day as the butter content will melt and make it unstable.

Instead, try a traditional ganache and fondant covering as it's much more sturdy. You can still use real flowers to get a summery look, but I recommend sugar flowers as they are long-lasting and can be kept as a memento of the day.
