The 6 most popular sponge flavours for your wedding cake

The classic favourite: fruit

A traditional favourite, fruit cake can be made in advance and keeps for months. If you choose a large, tiered design, your cake-maker may insist on a fruit cake base for stability.

Something new: red velvet

Rich, luxurious and ever-so trendy, more couples are opting for this rich red sponge, finished with mascarpone, or even white chocolate ganache for a super-sweet ending.

The decadent choice: dark chocolate

If you’re planning to serve the cake as your dessert, rich chocolate sponge finished with your choice of coffee buttercream or a ganache will go down a treat.

The crowd-pleaser: vanilla

Give the classic sponge a twist by pairing with delicious morella cherry jam rather than the classic raspberry or strawberry varities.

For a zesty kick: lemon

Fill with orange of lemon curd and top with a delicate lemon icing drizzle or sorbet for a lighter dessert choice to follow a rich main course.

A vintage variety: carrot

If you’re planning to serve your cake with afternoon tea, this family favourite, finished with a traditional mascarpone cheese topping, will soon be polished off by peckish guests.
