More couples are opting for cupcakes instead of the traditional wedding cake.

They are much easier to make sure you have something for all and can include different flavours and styles to suit your colour scheme or wedding theme.

If you want to build a traditional tower without the traditional tiers, you could consider a tower of cake balls. These work best if they are all the same flavour but you could do different layers.

When it comes to decorating your cake, flowers are a popular option. Many opt for real or fabric flowers for around the bottom or maybe on different layers, depending on the style of cake you choose.

However, why not make them edible? Make your cake full of edible icing flowers and hide the different tiers under them.

Trying to appease hundreds of guests is difficult. The good news is that you can do it by having different flavoured tiers.

Consider a sponge cake since most enjoy it but try a chocolate layer or even a pineapple upside down layer! You are only stopped by your imagination and preferences in flavours.

If cakes or cupcakes aren’t things you want to offer, why not do small French Fancies? These are great for special favours at your wedding breakfast or as a small piece for your guests to enjoy.

Instead of doing traditional cakes, consider offering a cheese board in the shape of a cake. You can have the different types of cheeses and add as many as you like – or as will fit!

This is a great savoury dessert. The problem is that not all your guests will like cheese so you have to consider this based on the people attending. Have a range of cheeses for everyone to be able to enjoy.
