Top wedding cake flavours in the UK

There are so many options for wedding cakes and it can be hard to decide what wedding cake you actually want. But the first thing to do when considering your wedding cake is to narrow down your options by deciding on which flavours of wedding cake you and your partner would like.

After all, regardless of how much you want to spend in your wedding budget, the most important part of the cake is that it tastes amazing, right? The good news is, there are plenty of wedding cake flavours out there that will suit you, whether you’re a traditionalist or something a little more adventurous.

Chocolate Wedding Cake

A rich, decadent flavour that is a fantastic choice for couples with a sweet tooth. Chocolate is incredibly versatile and can be included in various flavours such as white chocolate and raspberry, or you can have it plain, with ganache or with buttercream.

Vanilla Wedding Cake

Vanilla wedding cake is another option that is available to most people, regardless of any dietary requirements. There are so many flavours that can be added to vanilla cake to make it original and unique to your special day. It can also take on a lot of decorations, making it a versatile choice for any couple.

Vanilla is a great choice because it’s subtle and not too overpowering. It’s a good option if you want to opt for bright and colourful icing, as the flavour of the cake won’t compete with the icing. Vanilla goes well with fruit (raspberry, strawberry or blueberry), chocolate or lemon.

Carrot Wedding Cake

Carrot cakes are famous for being moist, dense, and flavourful (plus, they’re filled with fruit and vegetables – win-win). There are many different ways to make a carrot cake, but it’s usually made with carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans or walnuts, pineapple, and of course – cream cheese frosting. If you want to take this wedding cake flavour one step further try adding raisins or shredded coconut into the mix.

Fruit Wedding Cake

Fruit cakes, usually made with raisins or other dried fruits, are a traditional wedding cake that are still very popular. In England and Wales, fruit cakes are often frosted with marzipan and then fondant icing.

Red Velvet Wedding Cake

Another popular flavour is red velvet, which combines delicious red sponge with a cream cheese frosting. Red velvet cake would be a great option if you want something that’s slightly unusual while still being quite traditional.
