Classic, elegant and chic, a white wedding cake can be just as attractive as a colourful creation. Here are some ways you can request that your cakemaker jazzes up the design and makes a sensational statement that looks too good to eat. 

1. Minimalist detail

Jennifer Cakes created this masterpiece which comprised five pure white tiers, including some double height, and each a different flavour. All tiers were decorated with a subtle piped design and finished with satin ribbon and a diamante brooch. Jennifer covers Essex and Suffolk.

2. Gold accents

Add a metallic touch to an otherwise all-white wedding cake for a luxurious finish. The 'Peacock & Peahen' three tier cake from Choccywoccydoodah is enrobed in white Belgian chocolate and detailed with sculptures of Mr and Mrs Peacock. It is accented with gold glitter and serves 150-200 guests. Price: £1,745. Choccywoccydoodah is based in Brighton and London.

3. Mosaic

Mystic and magical, a hollowed out centre displaying a glittering mosaic and/or enchanting figurine is an enchanting option for a white wedding cake.

4. Quilted

Add an air of expense without breaking the budget by requesting a quilted design, delivering dimension and interest to the cake in an instant. 

5. Bas-relief

This Brontë-esque cake was created by Sweet Sugar Sixpence in West Yorkshire as part of a styled shoot which was themed 'Love in the Library' and offered a mix of modern and Victorian styles. The bas-relief detailing is very much trending at the moment and is a great way to add texture and drama to a single cake.

6. Crystallised sparkle

Glittering sugar crystals will make your cake pop without adding colour.

7. Sugar veil lace

For vintage weddings, a sugar veil lace effect will add contrast between tiers. Echo the use of lace in your table centres, favours and bouquet wrap for collectively charming details.

8. Vintage twists

Yorkshire family business, Bettys, was founded almost 100 years ago and is uniquely placed to draw on a range of beautiful cake designs stretching back over four generations. Bettys has taken inspiration from its archives to produce a distinctive Bettys Vintage Cascade Cake, that features several different styles – from dots and beading to elaborate scrolls, swags and wonderfully detailed piping. Each tier is covered in soft ivory icing and then trimmed with delicate beadwork. Price, as pictured: £875.

9. Drip cake

An emerging trend for 2017, drip cakes are on the rise. If you keep the cake covering plain and simple, you can inject colour and creativity into your topper.

10. Floral finishes

Scottish business, Liggy's Cake Company, used the bride's gown as the inspiration to create a lace-on-silk look in floral outlines, finishing the cake with white sugar roses to complement the bridal bouquet.

11. Torn paper/ fallen petal effect

For a sensational structure, ask your cakemaker to create a torn paper effect interspersed with white sugar flowers.

12. Minion masterpiece

Contrast a traditional wedding cake with a creative explosion on the other side. Du Bois Bespoke Cakes crafted this Minion-inspired masterpiece, with the much-loved cinematic characters peeping out of the parted sugar paste covering. The cake was made up of three deep sponge layers (two chocolate and one raspberry and vanilla). All three tiers were filled and coated with chocolate ganache before being covered with sugar paste and edible lace.
