Splashing the cash on an extravagant wedding cake has always been a bit of a tradition in the UK, but recent months have seen a heightened demand for engagement party cakes too.

Throwing an engagement party is a great way to celebrate your upcoming nuptials, get everyone excited for the big day and give a few little hints towards the style of your wedding.

With this in mind, you may as well go all out – and what party is complete without cake?!

Engagement cakes are usually just one or two tiers, in contrast to the grander bakes created for a wedding day, but many couples choose for them to be in the style their wedding cake will be.

From super-sweet chocolate to berry-flavoured treats, here are our picks of the best engagement cakes on the market.

NB: We have included third party products to help you navigate and enjoy life’s biggest moments. Purchases made through links on this page may earn us a commission.
