Unusual wedding cakes are big news, just think about Prince William's biscuit wedding cake choice and you will know that you are in good company. True, they also had an amazing and stunning 8-tier wedding cake decorated with 900 flowers but the cake that caught everyone's imagination has to be the chocolate biscuit cake!
Choosing your favorite cake as your wedding cake makes perfect sense as firstly it will be yummy and it is also a nice way to share something you love with your family and friends that are present at your wedding.
One couple couldn't choose their favorite wedding cake, so they chose instead to have a favorite on a each tier. They had chocolate gateau, Battenburg, lemon drizzle and an iced fruit cake, it might sound bizarre and to be honest it also looked slightly odd as each cake sat looking a bit lost but it is what they wanted and they saved themselves a fortune!
Popular and unusual wedding cakes are ones made of tiers of donuts, again you could save yourself lots and everyone loves a donut and they are super easy to stack! All you would need is a few boxes, maybe with a few spares for tasting purposes! Other ideas that have been used are tiers of cheese cakes with a topping bar so your guests can create their favorite flavors. Or you could go for the slightly more traditional cupcake wedding cakes.
Another growing trend is to have a wedding cake made entirely of cheese! A few specialist cheese suppliers have taken the idea to make wedding cakes entirely of cheese and they look amazing. Plus they cost around the same as a store bought wedding cake, so you are getting a reasonably priced wedding cake but with all the excitement of something truly unique.
