Get fruity

Why choose a traditional cake packed with layers of icing if that just isn’t your thing? Fruits are a delicious way to make your wedding cake look home-made, especially if you want a low key wedding. This 5 tiered wedding cake is just a simple cheesecake recipe, topped with fresh strawberries from the garden.
