Q What wedding cake trends will be popular in 2024?
A Laura Jones says: Vintage-style cakes were extremely popular in 2023, and we see this trend continuing with pearlescent details and lace decorations.

Flavourwise, we will see Victoria sponge, chocolate, salted caramel, chocolate orange, carrot, lemon, and red velvet continue to be on-trend.

Here at Cake Me Away, we offer dairy-free and vegan options, with a choice of over-the-phone and face-to-face consultations available.

Q What cake designs and flavours would you suggest for a summer-themed wedding?
A Malwina says: A flavour that is trending for summer weddings is berries. Don't be afraid to use fresh berries as decoration or in the sponge or buttercream. Make use of the variety of options available. One of our favourites is lemon raspberry with lemon curd.

Always creating headlines are the naked cakes. It's a lighter option for those who do not want a lot of buttercream. These cakes can be adorned with fresh berries and flowers or whatever the happy couple desires.

Some of the old favourites such as chocolate, red velvet, carrot and lemon drizzle will always be well received by guests.
