Hand-painted wedding cakes first made their appearance in 2015, but it seems even in 2016 brides just can’t get enough of yummy delights.

Hand-painted wedding cakes really are beautiful works of art that can have your guests in absolute awe. They can be the focal point of any wedding reception and have the ability to perfectly reflect your wedding style. Time to indulge in a little slice of heaven…

1.  I simply adore this delightful floral wedding cake by Sweet Deer Hand-Painted Cakes. It’s perfect for a Spring or Summer soiree, and would work wonderfully for an English country garden theme. I love the combination of fresh and faux flowers, and the few sprigs of foliage make it look beautifully natural. How incredible is the floral detailing?

2.  I couldn’t resist choosing this 3 tier masterpiece from Smores Sweets. The top and bottom coloured tiers complement the hand-painted detailing wonderfully, and it looks far too delicious to eat! Flowers are the most popular decorations for wedding cakes, and this cake perfectly reflects why!

3.  But you’re not just restricted to floral designs when it comes to hand-painted cakes – even though I love them! If you’re planning a Summer wedding that is ultra glamorous, this cake by Sweet and Saucy shop will definitely add a touch of luxury to your reception. The golden calligraphy writing is so pretty and the quote can be anything you want it to be!

4.  Speaking of metallic shades, gold is a must-have colour for 2016. Cake Ink have got the idea right when it comes to this glam show-stopper! The mixture of bright, hand-painted floral detailing works perfectly with the dazzling gold icing. And need we mention the gold cake stand?

6.  This two-tier wonder by Cake Life Bake Shop simply transports me to hazy Summer days. The soft, watercolour detailing of the plants is beautifully colourful, without being too obvious. The fresh flower cake topper is the perfect accompaniment.
