 1 Sounds basic, but arrange a tasting.Don’t just go on how your cake looks – how does it taste?  A cake tasting is a great way to explore the many different options and flavours available. The choice and variety is huge.  And don’t worry about you and your husband having different tastes – each tier can be a different flavour.Yum.

2  You can never have a big enough cake.  Big is beautiful in wedding cake world.  The cake should always stand out during your reception.  You can add height through dummy tears, columns or even flowers in between each tier.

3  Nothing is more grand than a shining cake stand (search Confetti cake stands here).  As well as adding height it should also complement your cakes style – a wow cakes needs a gold cake stand, white for a more contemporary English feel and silver for all round class.  Don’t forget to get a matching cake knife!

4 Cupcakes are everywhere.  But I’m not tired of them (just yet).  Nothing could be prettier then a fabulous cake stand filled with various colours and designs of cupcakes.  Plus they double up as gift favours for your guests!

5 Striking colours and stylish monograms are a huge trend for cakes in 2010.  Whether its edible painted ruffles, lace or flowers – the devils in the detail!
