Royal Wedding Cake Speculation… and Some BETTER Cakes! Yum.

By Claire

This is a guest blog post from Baking Mad – I couldn’t resist all the gorgeous cakey pictures attached to their email and asked for recipes. Those of you who’ve submitted real weddings and shoots for me to blog, I’m afraid I’ve bumped you down my things to do list in favour of baking. ;) Recipes for cupcakes, icing and a trio of cheesecakes are here too – see the links at the bottom of the page. Over to Baking Mad…

“It’s almost wedding season but up and down the country it’s not just brides-to-be who are basking in the warm glow of romance – with a Royal Wedding only weeks away, the whole country has wedding fever.

“Although there’s been speculation about Kate’s dress and discussion over honeymoon destinations, the question on’s lips is all about the cake. Is Kate going to go traditional with a multi-tier or will she have a more modern cupcake tower? Is William a fan of the Croquembouche or would he prefer a chocolate feast?

“As experts in home baking, has wedding cake suggestions fit for a Queen (or a Queen to be). They’re easy to make and use only the finest ingredients so even if your budget doesn’t match Kate & Wills, you can still wow your guests with a delicious, elegant centrepiece.

“Whether it’s one or three tiers, fruit or chocolate sponge, recommends using Billington’s Unrefined sugars, Allinson’s Nature Friendly Flours and the finest Cakecraft edible decorations.

Wedding Cupcake Tower

Not every wedding has to cost a fortune and a homemade wedding can feel more intimate with your guests knowing you’ve gone an extra mile for that personal touch. Use your bridesmaids’ decorating skills to help you perfect your cupcake tower. Some of these cakes are easy to decorate and some will need a little more skill but that’s half the fun!

Three Tier Wedding Cake

There’s nothing more elegant for a simple wedding than a three-tiered wedding cake, covered in Ready-to-Roll Icing from Silver Spoon. Using interesting icing techniques, fresh flowers or ribbon to match your bridesmaids’ dresses can make this cake the centrepiece of your big day. For a modern take, try mixing and matching your fruitcake tier with flavoured sponges.
