The latest trend for wedding cakes is anything but the norm! These drip cakes are highly decorated, delicious and make a real statement on your big day.

We love an excuse to talk about cake and the hottest trend for wedding cakes right now is one that you definitely have to see. Drip cakes might not sound instantly appealing, but when you see them, you're sure to want one as your wedding cake!

They come in all styles; from brightly coloured statements with caramel drips to a naked sponge cake that's oozing white chocolate ganache. The possibilities are limitless, making drip wedding cakes the perfect choice for an on trend wedding.

Add an extra dash of decoration and decadence with ganache drips. Use either milk or white chocolate, whichever suits your colour scheme (or taste buds) the best.
