When it comes to planning your big day, there are few tasks as delightful as deciding on your wedding cake. Make sure your cake is everything you dream it will be with our tips:
Be sure to taste the cake - this will ensure that your cake really does taste as good as it looks.
There is nothing more disappointing than a beautiful cake that ends up being dry and tasteless.
Consider the overall theme of your wedding - the best idea is to decide on your cake after choosing your venue, decor, wedding dress, and colour scheme.
Consider the weather - deciding on buttercream versus fondant will depend on the weather around the time of your wedding. Getting married in the heat of summer? Stick with fondant - it doesn't even need to be stored in a fridge.
Have fun with the details - whether you go for the popular naked cake or more traditionally decorated fondant cake, make sure your cake represents you as a couple. Here are a few of our favourite cakes we’ve seen at the forum weddings over the past few months.
Naked cakes are still a big trend in weddings - we love it!
How about a variety of gorgeous cakes topped with fresh fruit? Perfect for a rustic or farm style wedding.
Fondant gets a bad wrap these days but just look how stylish and elegant they can be!
A sweet cake topper and pretty stand is all it takes to add that wow factor.
Perfect for our Turbine Hall venue, this couple went for a Jozi themed cake - love!
