Our love of Gatsby Glamour knows no bounds! We’re head over heels for art deco weddings and when you combine Gatsby style with wedding cake, we just can’t resist.

The best art deco wedding cakes are real showstoppers. They’re big, bold and absolutely unmissable. We love designs that include a whole range of design details and styling cues from the 1920s and combine them to create a cake with real wow factor. The art deco era was full of exuberance so these wedding cakes should never just have plain white icing!

Of course, however amazing your wedding cake looks, it needs to be delicious too. Mix up flavours in the various layers and don’t forget to taste before you order.

1. Mix the shapes of the cake layers – sit square cakes on top of round tiers.
