Wedding Cake Styling
Your cake can often be the centrepiece of your room and you should therefore take time to style it up. The tables that your guests sit upon are often styled with fresh flowers, stationery and favours and your cake table deserves just as much attention. Here’s a few of my tips to help you on your way.

Remember that the backdrop of your cake may appear in your ‘cutting the cake’ photos unless the cake is to be moved beforehand. It’s therefore worth thinking about where in the room you’d like your cake positioned and perhaps speaking to your photographer. Photo credit : Christine McNally
Many venues offer a table with a clean / crisp table cloth and so speak to them about options. To go the extra mile why not use a piece of beautiful furniture within the venue or hire one from your venue stylist or even source one yourself. There are some great bargains on Ebay which can then be used in your own homes afterwards!
Stands are incredibly important for your cake. I can’t emphasise how different a cake looks on a beautiful stand compared to being placed direct onto the table. You’ll notice on my portfolio page that my cakes are always placed on a stand and I also hire these out to my couples. Alternatively, speak to your venue about options they offer or go for a personalised one yourselves. Don’t order one without speaking to your cake maker though just to check if what you’re ordering is suitable in terms of size and ability to hold a heavy wedding cake!
Simple props can be really effective. Candles and small vases of flowers are easy to source and can make a big difference to tie your cake table in with the rest of your room. Photo credit: ekr pictures. Styling: Sass Weddings
Menu cards printed or written by your stationery supplier or sourced yourselves let your guests know the treat they’re in for later in the day. if you’re choosing really tasty flavours why not shout about it! Stationery: Rebecca Richard Designs
