Suzanne Thorp from The Frostery reveals how you can incorporate strong flavours into your cake

Suzanne Thorp from The Frostery reveals how you can incorporate strong flavours into your cake: Image 1 Q - My wife-to-be and I love strong flavours and want something unusual for our cake. Do you have any suggestions?

"For something unexpected, woody herbs such as rosemary, thyme and lavender work well when teamed with more familiar citrus flavours. If you’re having a tiered wedding cake, you have the opportunity to mix and match. You could opt for a one or two-tier design in a classic flavour and team it with something unusual.

"The season in which you’re getting married may inspire you; think pears, pomegranates, maple syrup, figs and ginger for an autumn-inspired bake or strawberries, basil, rhubarb and lemon thyme for spring creations.

"One of our favourite combinations is an orange sponge cake with spiced cinnamon and cloves with a creamy and nutty tahini buttercream – yum!"
