Cake expert, Suzanne Thorp reveals how you can incorporate summer into your big-day bake

Cake expert, Suzanne Thorp reveals how you can incorporate summer into your big-day bake: Image 1 Q - We’re having a summer wedding and would love to incorporate the season into our cake. Do you have any ideas?

"It’s impossible to think about summer without first looking at the natural world. That’s where I would start to look for design ideas and inspiration.

"An informal arrangement of delicate sugar flowers in a soft palette of faded, muted colours would perfectly evoke the season of elegance and romance.

"When we think of this time of year, we immediately think of long, dreamy days, so imagine a cake with graceful lines and softness of tone. If you want to include a monogram, look at flowing and elegant script. You can’t go wrong with any design that has a delicate, floaty look.

"Introduce pale, broken watercolours to give your bake an airy, impressionist style. Patterns are a popular trend at the moment. If this appeals, then go for something loose and unstructured.

"Give your guests the taste of summer by choosing light, fragrant flavours such as lemon, strawberry, champagne or rose and pistachio."
