Every third wedding these days has an incredible wedding cake (a totally made up statistic, but it sounds about right). But if you’re getting engaged or roka-d soon, there’s no need for you to wait till your wedding day to order a beautiful cake!
More and more couples are asking for engagement cakes, and no – not the simple black forest or chocolate truffle. These are often multi-tier fondant or buttercream beauties with incredible sugar work and customised cake toppers.
If you’re looking for ideas, see the best engagement cake designs I’ve found – baked and decorated by Indian wedding cake designers! They can, and will, make your Pinterest dreams come true.
