Hi everyone it’s Hitched Magazine here again and this month we’re all about cakes! Actually we’re all about cakes most months but this month especially because we’ve just launched our brand spankin’ new cover – and it features a fab illustration by Eirian Chapman of one of the funnest wedding cakes ever.
Ahem. In our humble opinion.
Anyway, we hope you’ve all had a chance check it out! Although if you haven’t you can grab one here.
So let’s talk about the wedding cake.
Or more specifically let’s talk wedding cake options, because there are so many out there! But we don’t want to talk marzipan, two tiered options we want to talk about the fun ones.
Like macaroons and muffins and cheese wheels galore. So let’s get started.
One of our favourite new cake trends to hit the wedding runway over recent years have been towers made from macaroons and cupcakes. Although we can’t forget croquembouche’s too, which we all remember were only made popular after they were aired on Masterchef. But weren’t they so fun! ?
We think a wedding cake like this would be perfect for a bride having a fun dessert table they want to dress up. Or for brides who want to have a modern take on the traditional wedding cake (minus the cake) on their special day.
Romantic themed and country weddings would be perfect for this type of cake.
Next on our list is the non-cake, aka the cheese wheel including savoury options. This sort of cake is perfect for Brides who don’t have a sweet tooth – because we know you’re out there!
It’s also a good option for those who are wanting to steer away from anything to girly or pink or wedding-y. Maybe that’s why they became popular in the first place? Whatever the reason we think this option would suit brides who are having rustic, industrial type weddings. Barn type or warehouse venues are a must.

And finally we want to talk about the homemade cake. The nothing elaborate cake, but one made by a family member, or a friend, or even the bride for the special day.
This cake is always super special because it’s one that we know is always made with a whole heap of love! Not that the others aren’t, but you know when you cook something at home and it’s just so much better than takeaway – yeah that feeling. This cake is that.
You can’t really leave this cake on a table by itself though, because it may look lonely. It’s one of those creations that needs to hang out with some of its other sweet friends. So placed on a table with DIY paper goods and décor would be perfect, or other little homemade muffins and things would work too.
And if you haven’t realised by now this cake would work perfectly for a DIY bride getting married in her backyard, or in a garden, or picnic-ing somewhere pretty, with all her family and friends!
Remember, if you want to read and see a whole heap more on everything cake make sure you pick up a copy of our issue 4.
Until next time! xx
