When you are looking to save on your wedding budget, a decorated single tier cake can be a good option. This can be in a variety of shapes such as an open book or double hearts.
There are many options for our single tier cakes, and they make a beautiful presentation. This solution is the most economical for receiving a wedding cake that still gives you a dessert serving for the reception.
Today our decorators use some interesting techniques to give the wedding cake a new, more modern appeal.
The most popular cake is the rolled fondant wedding cake. This style of cake has the smooth finish that allows very detailed decorating to produce a very simple but elegant look while underneath is a delicious European buttercream cake or even a carrot cake.
Rolled fondant cakes are today’s decorating trend, but for those brides and grooms who favour a lighter cake, a chocolate mousse might be more to your liking or perhaps strawberry mousse would be more seasonal. These cakes are limited in decorating styles due to their soft texture (whipping cream is their main ingredient), but we do decorate these cakes very attractively.
Royal icing is the hard icing used to decorate fruitcakes. It works well when cakes cannot be refrigerated. Its flavour profile is considered somewhat marginal, but decorators can do an outstanding job of decorating your cake. This type of cake can be purchased well in advance.
