10 Amazing Wedding Cakes March 21, 2014
Let’s be honest, a day without cake isn’t a good one (at least it isn’t for us GS girls!). A slice of mouth-watering deliciousness is a sure way to put a smile on our faces and, if it looks pretty (most of our handmade attempts don’t!), it somehow tastes even better. So you may not be surprised to hear that choosing the perfect wedding cake would be up there as the one of the most exciting task after shopping for ‘the dress’. Looking at an abundance of pretty designs? Choosing the most scrumptious fillings? Tasting lots of sweetness? Yes please! All this cake talk has set our craving off so we’ve spoken to some of the most talented designers in the industry and asked them to choose their favourite of all the wedding cakes they’ve created. Mouth-watering on-trend naked cakes, pretty floral delights and wonderful, whimsical masterpieces, it’s fair to say these beauties are almost too gorgeous to cut!

I love an ombre wedding cake and this stunning ruffled cake by Bite Me Bakery is beautiful. An on-trend theme to coordinate with your wedding colours with effortless ease. Bite Me Bakery boast that "From sketch book to cake stand; it’s more than just cake, it’s love at first bite!".
8. Carousel Couture
A truly amazing cake by Melissa Woodland Cakes, with a beautifully crafted carousel as the wedding cake topper. Melissa loves to work with customers’ themes and ideas to design a dream cake.
9. Chanel Pearl
Don't be fooled that this beauty by Maisie Fantaisie is totally traditional! Inside you'll find fairtrade Arabica expresso coffee cake with Amedie chocolate and orange zest buttercream. Decorated with sugar bows and pearls and satab ribbon, the attention to detail is stunning.
Totally on-trend - naked cakes are perfect for rustic, country weddings. Uncovered with their fillings oozing, fresh fruit and flowers usually feature heavily in these designs. I love this naked creation also by Abigail Bloom Cake Company which looks delicious with its fresh fruit topping.
