Traditional or modern ? Sponge or fruit?

In my Brackley kitchen, 2015 is looking like a very busy year and wedding cake orders are now in place for 2016 ! It has been an amazing start to the year and I have been surprised how many rich fruit cakes are being chosen for at least one tier of the wedding cakes. The designs vary including modern, traditional and novelty but all personalised for every wedding couple. The ordering process is lots of fun with a face to face meeting with clients where we design the cake whilst tasting the different cake flavours in order to make the right choice. Fruit cakes are often chosen to please the ‘older’ members of the family who expect the traditional wedding cake, but a fair few couples want a cake that they can keep and either enjoy themselves after the wedding or keep for that first Christmas, Anniversary or Christening. No two cakes on my order book are the same which I am delighted about because it defines the service I provide as truely ‘bespoke’.
