WEDDINGS Takeover: My 5 Favourite Wedding Cakes


Hi b.loved brides! I’m Emily from Tempting Cake, the‘s expert cake designer.  Drawing on a background in design and patisserie we create elegant, crisp wedding cakes and Tempting Table dessert tables loaded with flavour and coordinated to perfection.  Our style is fresh but with a classic twist and ensures that our cakes and dessert tables are the sweetest way to end any celebration in style.

Ombre cakes are very on trend and lend themselves perfectly to a buttercream icing covering rather than fondant icing.

A cake collection is a contemporary way to display your wedding cakes, and the perfect excuse to indulge in multiple flavours and designs.  This fresh collection features contrasting cake shapes and tier sizes with the colour palette of zingy lime green, moody blues and grey tying them all together.

We love the glamour of the silver leaf and the contrast of the soft coral flowers on this effortlessly cool cake

A classic cake brimming with elegance, the appeal of this cake iced with cascading pearls is timeless.

Or, add some interest with tiers which aren’t matchy-matchy.

And my top piece of wedding advice?

Wedding days fly by all too quickly and as the couple of the moment you’ll be very much in demand all day.  Make sure you take some time out on your wedding day to take a little wander just with your beloved.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
