Your wedding cake is more than just the first bite you share as a couple. It's a centrepiece that lends extra oomph to your wedding theme. 

The hand-painted trend opens up avenues for personalisation. From gorgeous floral illustrations to getting a romantic portrait of you and your special other painted on the cake, it’s nothing less than a work of art. We are talking tropical, stained glass- or even Monet-inspired cake designs. These ones certainly caught our attention! 

These cake designs will make a sweet statement on your big day and have your guests begging for another slice!
