Whether it be a traditional masterpiece covered in lashings of velvet icing, or a tower of Homer Simpson’s favourite treats (check out that mouthwatering donut cake shot by Emily Sacra); the cake you choose will undoubtedly become a talking point for your wedding.

How does passionfruit and coconut cream sound to you? What if we add some zesty cream cheese frosting, peanut butter balls, dehydrated custard shards, salted chocolate shortbread and fruitcake crumble? This gorgeous creation comes from the pros over at Sticky Fingers Bakery and was shot by Oli Sansom, and it’s perhaps the most delicious mouthful we’ve ever heard of.

With the festive season around the corner, why not take inspiration from those beautiful Christmas colours and decorations, like the elegant three tiered cake shot by Nicole Duncan-featuring reindeer horns! Or the dark and luxurious cake shot by Gold and Gritt, the dried fruit and mangosteens artfully placed just so.

If a sweet treat is more your thing the candy covered cake shot by Alannah Jade is sure to inspire Charlie in the Chocolate Factory-esque memories. likewise the sugary goodness photographed Athena Grace three tiered cake-dripping with icing and chocolate money will no doubt grab the attention of any closet sugar addicts!

Thinking of a ‘less is more’ approach to your edible centrepiece? Why not follow in the footsteps of the woodlands inspired cake shot byLuisa Brimble. Or have a play with texture like the cake featuring a crown of itty-bitty meringues, shot by Gold and Gritt.
