If you think of your wedding cake as a focal point, a red wedding cake is a real showstopper.

Red is passionate and bold, and a great choice for a breathtaking wedding cake. From contemporary stacked designs to fruit-adorned naked cakes, let’s take a look at some of our favourites.

Starting with the most traditional design, this four-tier stacked cake is a beauty. Intricate white icing gives us the classic wedding cake, with red introduced in the form of deeply coloured fresh roses.

Stacked again, but this time a more modern look. The ‘Wildflowers Monochrome’ cake by Rosalind Miller (rosalindmillercakes.com) is a striking black and white creation, again with red introduced by flowers. It’s dramatic and wonderfully quirky. By simply changing the flowers, this cake could suit any colour scheme.

For a country wedding, take a less formal look at decoration. We love this cake with its three different tiers, it blackboard effect bottom tier and glitter heart.

They say that the best things come in small packages! An intimate, contemporary wedding doesn’t need a grand, elaborate cake. Instead, keep it small and fabulous. This monochrome base and red top tier are just crying out for a chic city hotel.

Flowers are the most popular decoration for a cake, and we particularly love painted flowers. This design is a real showstopper, while being relatively simple.

A rich, Marsala shade of red is a particularly popular choice this year. It combines effortlessly with gold to create a glamorous cake.

The naked cake is still bang on trend, and berries create your red theme for you. This feast of sponge and berries decorated with pretty wild flowers would look magical on a spring or summer day.

Alternatively, why not create your naked cake with a red velvet sponge? This partially iced, red velvet naked cake adorned with an abundance of amazing fresh flowers couldn’t be more fashionable.

Sticking with the red velvet theme… as an alternative to fairy cakes, how about serving cake shots? Display as part of a cake table, and delight your guests!

We couldn’t possibly leave this cake off the list. For the full rainbow effect, including a red tier, look no further. The aptly named ‘Rainbow’ cake by Rachelles (rachelles.co.uk) is beyond fabulous. We love it!
