They come to our in person consultations full of ideas, colours and pictures, which we then use to create something completely unique to them as a couple.
"The one thing that we've definitely noticed is that all of them want handmade sugar flowers as part of their design. This is as true for a macaron wedding cake as it is for a traditional tiered cake. Our style of sugar flowers tends to be more bold and colourful, although we do offer more neutral designs too.
"Many couples choose to complement the florals from their bouquet or the colour scheme from their wedding, but the real joy of sugar flowers is that you aren’t constrained by them being in season. Our couples also love the idea that you can keep the flowers forever!"

Many couples opt for clean, minimalist designs with simple yet sophisticated aesthetics. This style often features smooth, fondant-covered cakes with minimal decorations such as delicate floral arrangements or metallic accents.
"The second is floral decorations. Flowers are a firm favourite when it comes to wedding cakes. Couples often request silk flowers, sugar flowers, or fresh flowers that match their wedding theme or bouquet.
"And the final one is personalisation and customisation. Couples often seek unique and personalised touches for their wedding cakes.

How Much Should I Budget for a Wedding Cake in London?
Explaining how the prices of wedding cakes are impacted in London, Floriana from Let Them Eat Cakes explains, "A number of factors will affect the final cost of your wedding cake including size, design, how elaborate your design is, and the bakery you choose (Central London bakeries with their overhead costs, tend to cost more than smaller bespoke cake companies, for instance).
"On average, wedding cakes in London can range from £450 to £1,500 or more. It's a good idea to reach out to local bakeries or cake designers to get specific quotes based on your preferences and requirements. They can provide you with more accurate pricing information based on your desired cake design and size."
Adding to this, the team at Bluebell Kitchen explain, "How much should you budget for a wedding cake is really that cliché of "How long is a piece of string?", as the cost of your wedding cake depends on so many factors. There's not a one-size-fits-all cost for your wedding cake. We believe your wedding cake should be the best cake that you ever taste, you want it to look exceptional, but also have the most amazing flavour.
"We explain to our clients that when they're budgeting for their wedding cake, it will depend on the size, number of guests that you'd like to feed and style of cake you’re going for. Budgeting for a two tier wedding cake for an intimate wedding in London is likely to be less than for a show-stopping five tier design."
And it also depends on the amount of detail you have on your design, explain the team who add, "A significant proportion of the price of your wedding cake is for to cover your design which includes your sugar flowers, hand painting, texture and much more to ensure that it's designed uniquely for you."
What to do With Leftover Wedding Cake in London?
Advising couples on what to do with leftover wedding cake in London, Floriana says:
- Enjoy it: Keep the remaining cake as a sweet treat in the days following the wedding. Give away a tier to a family member or enjoy it at an intimate afternoon tea with family the next day.
- Freeze it: If the cake is still fresh and you have enough space in your freezer, you can wrap individual slices or the remaining cake in plastic wrap and freeze it. Just make sure to thaw it properly before consuming.
- Repurpose it: You can transform the leftover cake into other desserts. Crumble the cake and use it as a base for cake pops or truffles. You could also create a trifle by layering the cake with fresh fruit, custard, and whipped cream.
- Donate it: If you have a surplus of cake that you won't be able to consume, consider donating it to a local charity, shelter, or community centre. They may appreciate the sweet treat.
- Make sure there’s none leftover: Serve it as the dessert element of your wedding meal you can compliment and enhance the slices of cake by serving them with fruit coulis, fresh fruit or berries, caramel, ice cream or whipped Chantilly cream.
Remember, the shelf life of cake depends on its ingredients and storage conditions, so use your discretion to determine if it's still safe to consume.
Where to Buy Wedding Cake Toppers in London?
Floriana gives her recommendations on where to buy your wedding cake toppers in London.
"There are a few places couples can source their cake toppers. The first would be cake decorating supply stores who specialise in cake decorating accessories. Another would be wedding and party supply stores who offer a range of different cake toppers to suit different styles and themes. Couples can also consider browsing online retailers who offer a wide selection of unique and personalised options.
"Finally, look t local cake suppliers and reach out to local cake designers or bakeries in your area. Some offer custom cake toppers or may be able to recommend specialty shops where you can find unique toppers."
