1. Red Velvet
A modern flavour but fast becoming a mainstay, red velvet is highly in demand for a wedding cake. And why not? Its striking and unusual colour as well as its smooth texture are just a few reasons to love this cake.
You can’t go wrong with a lemon-flavoured cake, especially one made with local lemons which are bursting with zesty essence. And why not decorate with some lemon slices too? The vibrant yellow works wonderfully with lavender, greenery or even simple white frosting.
The traditional almond cake will never fall out of f(l)avour. Not only is it a great base for multi-tiered cakes due to its density, but it’s also firmly rooted in local tradition, as the cake of choice for special occasions, be it a christening, Holy Communion, and even a wedding.
Beneath the layers of floral decoration and soft buttercream, there’s nothing more pleasing than a mouthful of soft vanilla cake – ever so simple in flavour but guaranteed to be a hit with all your guests, who’ll probably be craving something light and simple after a day of fancy food.
For the chocolate lovers among us, there really is only one option for a wedding cake: chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. It’s also a great and simple choice if decorated sparingly, with a lick of vanilla or chocolate buttercream and some scattered fruit for decoration.
Baci cake has gained popularity in recent years as a chocolate option alongside the unwavering almond. Packed with nuts, crushed crackers and cocoa, it’s got the highest crunch factor from this list, and will satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth.
