We talk to the lovely Gordon of Essex County Cakes about how to introduce colour into your wedding cake design

White wedding cakes with a red rose and gradient red bottom tier If you're having a bright and colourful wedding theme, in what ways can you incorporate this into your wedding cake design? We ask Gordon Harwood of Essex County Cakes...

The options to add different colours into your bake are vast. How about making each tier a different flavour and hue? Or to make a real splash, choose a rainbow effect to really make your loved ones smile! Consider what you've chosen for your day. Perhaps you could find a colour from your flowers, table settings or bridesmaids' dresses to pick up in the icing to coordinate all elements.

Do you have a theme? Whether it's an outdoorsy wedding or you're having a Marvel Comics motif, ask your cake maker to incorporate this into the design for a real showstopper.You could opt for a reveal cake. This is a style that keeps on giving as from the front it's a grown-up, stylish design to tie in with the setting, while the other side is a more whacky style – it's perfect for giving the wow factor!
