The trend for ombre continues…

Ombre cakes are one of the hottest wedding trends for 2014.

An ombre scheme is where a colour starts dark and gets gradually lighter as it goes up or down a cake.

The lovely thing about it is it enables couples to bring a strong colour to their cake without it feeling too bold as the paler part beautifully balances the stronger dark colour.Available as 2, 3 or 4 tiers

As we head into summer, expect to see plenty of buttercream versions, such as our pink rose cake seen here.  Perfect for a vintage inspired wedding or one set in the countryside.


For a bit more formality a fondant version might fit the bill, such as Ombre Wedding Cake With Cascading Petalsthis richly coloured gold cake with cascading petals tumbling down the side of the cake.


No matter the style of your wedding there will be an ombre cake that works for you!
