Budget Savvy Brides-to-be Opt for DIY Wedding Cakes


Fuelled by the need to create a unique and personal wedding on a tight budget, brides-to-be are donning their aprons and cooking up a storm. The options are limitless with regards to style and flavour of cakes used at weddings today. Weddings have become a way for couples to display their individuality rather than adhering to the traditional formalities as in years gone by.

The simplest ‘shop bought’ wedding cake is more costly than most would expect and can be an unwelcomed expense for many wedding couples. New wedding trends are making it much more acceptable to take the homemade and handmade approach to things such as the wedding cake, wedding favours, table decorations and also floral arrangements.

You do not have to be a culinary genius to create your own wedding cake. There are many cake making guides available online to help you on your way and after a few practice runs you will be well prepared. Things to take into consideration when selecting the type of wedding cake you are going to make are the number of guests you anticipate attending, the theme of your wedding and your allowance for wedding cake ingredients and decorations.

Ruth Williams of Wedding Favours Delights adds “Brides should grasp the opportunity to be creative and really let their imagination go wild. Make your wedding individual and show your friends and family how much you appreciate their presence on such as special day with your own unique handmade finishing touches.”

Some more unique wedding cake ideas include cheesecakes - including the traditional desert as well as tiered discs of different cheeses, individual cupcakes and a meringue or profiterole tower. If you are not so confident in your cake decorating ability, you can slice the cake and place each segment into individual cake favour boxes. Cake wedge boxes are available in a myriad of colours and can be decorated with ribbon and accessories to match your colour scheme, creating a real show piece. These can then be arranged in a tower format to resemble a tiered wedding cake. Guests also have the option to take their slice of cake home with them should they wish.
