Q We love flowers and want to incorporate them into our cake design. What do you recommend we look for?
A Hannah Andrews says: I love flowers too, the brighter the better! There's lots of ways to include flowers that fit in with the rest of your floral decorations. Your cake maker can work with your florist directly, co-ordinating with them to provide loose flowers for them to arrange and make 'cake-safe'. Alternatively, your cake maker can source and arrange the flowers themselves. The cake, pictured below, was a real team effort, with beautiful fresh flower arrangements provided by Yvonne Dennis Event Flowers, and co-ordinating pressed petals and leaves provided and arranged by myself. Such a look!

Q I want to incorporate our love of travelling into our wedding cake. Do you have any ideas of how to do this?
A Nat Crooks says: Absolutely! I love getting to know my couples and what they're passionate about. There are many ways to incorporate your love of travel into your cake design from simple table dressing using suitcases and passports as props, to subtle hints using bespoke cake toppers with slogans such as let our adventures begin. Moving on to bespoke cakes, you could choose a novelty style cake, for example, 3D carved suitcases or travel-related stencils or silhouettes. You may wish to reflect your favourite place in the world using colours and associations from that place to tie into your wedding theme for a more subtle nod to your love of travel.
