GIVE TRADITIONAL A CONTEMPORARY TWIST
A WEDDING cake can take many shapes and forms. No longer confined by tradition, it has shaken off the shackles of multiple tiers, marzipan and heavy icing. From cupcake towers to fairy castles, anything goes today.
In recent years, fads have come and gone – from traditional, cascading roses to quirky, contemporary cakes with little icing people made to look like your guests; from themed designs to the ever-popular “little cakes” piled high on fancy stands.
Now, one Scots bakery and cafe has turned the idea on its head again with its wedding cake table concept: offering several cakes in an assortment of styles and flavours. Nichola Reith, pastry chef at Three Sisters Bake in Quarriers Village, explains: “If you want the ‘wow’ factor, forget large, unimaginative, multi-layered cakes. The one-cake-suits-all mentality doesn’t work any more.”
She adds: “The ideal wedding cake table should consist of five or six cakes – for example, carrot, Belgian chocolate, New. York cheesecake, coconut and raspberry and a profiterole or meringue mountain.
“If you have a vintage theme, you could opt for an array of Victoria sponges, chocolate gateaux and rustic traybakes set upon traditional cake stands with mismatched cups and saucers.”
Nichola, who founded the cafe bakery with her sisters Gillian and Linsey, says: “We have noticed more brides opting for something with a bit more originality.”
