Classic, elegant and timeless – how can you not love a white wedding cake?

There are so many reasons to love wedding cakes, we don’t know where to start. As well as being a wonderfully romantic tradition, they taste delicious and should always be considered a key element of your wedding décor. Of course, a white wedding cake is the ultimate in classic elegance and suits any style of celebration. Today we look at some on-trend white wedding cakes, from romantic textured designs to those with a hint of contemporary metallics.

The Naked Cake

Still proving to be hugely popular, the deconstructed naked and semi-naked cake is perfectly suited for a more rustic celebration. Add white icing or white flowers to suit the white theme.

This semi-naked cake incorporates a white background with a white chocolate ‘drip’.
