The cake is surely one of the high points of one’s wedding celebrations. Beautifully designed and exquisitely decorated, it stands serenely amidst the revels being admired by all until, finally, it takes centre stage, as the newlyweds slice through the icing in their first task as man and wife. With so much at stake, creating a cake that is perfect for your wedding may seem a daunting task. But Fortnum’s new range of handmade wedding cakes is so irresistible that it will make this task almost effortless.
To begin with, we offer eight very different designs that will appeal to all tastes, and each design can then be customised in many different ways until it matches exactly the theme and style of your wedding. The six stunning designs were inspired by Fortnum’s long history, our love of craftsmanship and our passion for fine foods. Ranging from Blossom, a stunning and romantic cascade of pink petals, to Cameo, a striking design incorporating Georgian-style silhouettes, the designs should please modernists and traditionalists alike. The colours can be varied, as can the shape, size and style of the decorations, making it completely your own, unique to the last detail. We also offer wedding favours in the form of matching, hand-iced biscuits, which in turn can be customised to match your cake.
The flavours, too, are almost infinitely variable. Our range includes eight different sponge cake flavours as well as a classic fruitcake, and we offer a considerable choice of buttercream flavours and Fortnum’s preserves for the fillings. We have also recruited some of our favourite ingredients for this project, so your cake recipe could include a number of Fortnum’s exclusive products, such as Sandringham Coffee, Rose Petal Jelly, Tercentenary Chocolate or Fortnum’s Cognac. As an example, these many options could result in a Classic Tercentenary Chocolate sponge with chocolate ganache filling and Black Cherry Preserve, or you could equally well choose a lemon sponge filled with Fortnum’s Lemon Curd and lemon buttercream. Both are Fortnum’s cakes – but they couldn’t be more different.
