If you ask us, picking your wedding cake is one of the best parts of your wedding planning journey.
Sure, a lot of that comes down to all the free cake you get to sample along the way, but it’s also a really fun, creative and personal wedding task that you and your fiancé actually get to do together.
For that reason, picking a good cake designer is crucial!
Luckily we’re here to help you make the right choice, and one of our favourites has to be Special Days Cakes in Uddingston.
Special Days Cakes have been open for 26 years and during that time they’ve won multiple awards.
Among these well-deserved wins are several VOWS Awards, including the Industry Award, Outstanding Contribution to the Wedding Industry and multiple Wedding Cake Designer of the Year awards.
Although their friendly and supportive approach to customer service is partly responsible for all their wins, a lot of it also comes down to their gorgeous and delicious cake designs.
Wedding cakes for every style
No matter what you have in mind, Special Days Cakes are sure to accomplish it – in fact, they’ll probably end up creating something even prettier than you could have imagined!
Take this timeless cake, for example.
Made from a mixture of layers including vanilla sponge, lemon drizzle, red velvet, chocolate, and toffee (you definitely don’t have to stick to one flavour with your cake, by the way), it’s a real showstopper.
Michael from Special Days Cakes explains more: “The intricate lace and piping details mimic that of a wedding dress, and the array of flowers adds a beautiful elegance to the cake.
We love this cake in all ivory because it allows you to appreciate the hand crafted details and textures on each tier without the need for added colour.”
This style of cake would be a stand out feature at any wedding, and remember, Michael and team can add personalised touches to ensure yours ends up a truly individual design.
But if you fancy a more rustic, relaxed looking wedding cake, they’ve got that covered, too.
We love the versatility of this buttercream cake. While this one has been finished with gorgeous handcrafted sugar roses and thistles, you could ask for any flowers – or even add real ones – to suit your overall wedding style.
Working with Special Days Cakes
As we mentioned earlier, the Special Days Cakes team are super friendly and supportive.
If you’re a little bit nervous about picking the right flavour combo, ordering the right size or creating a cake that fits in with your wedding theme, they’ll definitely see you right.
One of the first things Special Days Cakes will do when you ask them to make your big day bake is get you in for a cake tasting consultation (the fun part!).
They know every couple is different, so this consultation gives them a chance to get to know you both and your preferences.
They can then use this tasting session to guide you when it comes to making final decisions, so that you end up choosing the perfect cake for your special day.
And don’t forget to also keep an eye out for special offers! Special Days Cakes are currently running a summer offer on their Boutique range, with discounts available on three-tier and four-tier cakes.
This is only available until the end of this month, but they’ll also be running a winter offer giving £100 off any new wedding bookings for November through to February. T&Cs apply to both so make sure you ask for more details during your consultation!
These fab consultations are available seven days a week and booking in for one is definitely the place to start! Get in touch with Special Days Cakes to make an appointment.
