For the likes of many of our parent’s generations, wedding cake was almost always a fruit cake. Over the years things have moved on with more variety being introduced, culminating with the popularity of the chocolate biscuit cake in the late 90s and noughties. Today, we’ve seen a massive shift in what can be considered a wedding cake. It’s not just the variety of the fillings which are now featuring everything from red velvet to chocolate fudge! Instead, couples are now thinking bigger and wider than ever before and going for unusual options that aren’t even in the strictest sense of the word ‘cakes’. Everything from doughnut towers, to macaroons, to even savoury options like cheese and how could we forget the meteoric rise of the tasty cakepop?
