Traditional Wedding Cakes
Photo credit: Pinterest When you think of a traditional wedding cake, you are probably imagining the fruit wedding cake, marzipan and royal iced creations of your parents era, but traditional wedding cakes are experiencing a big come-back. Smooth fondant icing has replaced royal icing over the past 15 years, making cakes easier to serve and offering a greater flexibility in designs.Although most wedding cakes are white or ivory, fondant icing can be coloured or flavoured, and recently a range of white chocolate and milk chocolate fondant icings have become available. Fruit wedding cakes usually have a layer of marzipan under the fondant icing, although this marzipan serves no purpose, other than for flavour, so can easily be omitted. Sponge or chocolate wedding cakes can be covered in fondant icing, giving the impression of a traditional cake.
