Why not bake your very own wedding cake?

Wedding cakes are a real treat at the end of any wedding celebrations and a wonderful decoration and focal point on display throughout the day. So why not make your own wedding cake extra special and unique by making your own, Great British Bale Off style!

If you are dreaming the traditional fruit wedding cake, don’t forget to add this into your wedding planning timeline, and do not forget, this kind of cake must be made in advance for the best results. Make sure you allow plenty of time to “feed” the cake with brandy and let it mature. Traditional fruit wedding cake can be made up to three months in advance of the wedding. This is a lovely moment to mark the beginning of your wedding season. Making your own cake with family or friends is a lovely way to kick off the the exciting build up to the big day! Something equally lovely for you to do together as a couple, knowing you both made it together will make it taste extra special on your wedding day! Or alternatively a fun thing to do with your bridesmaids, a small pre hen do get together perhaps?

Looking for an alternative to the traditional fruits wedding cake? here at Mickleton Hills Farm we can highly recommend Mary Berry’s American Chocolate Wedding Cake as a delicious alternative.

If you are looking for a different flavour for each tier, cover it will white icing and the outside look will be seamless and elegant, whilst there is something for everyone inside: fruit, chocolate, vanilla, lemon? Anything you love, why not have it all. It is your wedding day after all!
