We asked Claire Hansen from Claire Hansen Cakes (www.clairehansencakes.com) for her advice on creating a wedding cake that's truly personal. Here's what she had to say:
There are so many lovely ways to reflect your personalities and love story in your wedding cake. When I'm designing big-day bakes, I always have a detailed conversation with my couples to really get to know them and what they'd like to express with their cake. This one used colour to reflect both the bridal party and the groom’s suit. Using swatches of their bridesmaids' dresses and the groom’s attire, I was able to colour match the green for the groom and the rose gold sequins and blush elements for the bride and her maids.
Heritage is another way that couples love to express themselves with their cake design – decorating your cake with flowers matched to your family tartan is a subtle but sentimental touch that I love.
Choosing a special flavour from your travels together such as vanilla chai or matcha can also be a delicious way to remember your past adventures. Discuss your bespoke flavour options with your cake designer with lots of time to spare so you can really get that nostalgic taste spot on.
