    Ok guys I need your help. I'm doing a wedding fair in a couple of weeks and they've asked me to take some samples to hand out. I'm trying to decide what flavours would be best to take. So tell me if you were looking for a wedding cake which flavour sample would you go for

    Seriously, I am very much a traditionalist when if comes to wedding cakes, and I would be looking for a rich, moist fruit cake, athough my son is having one tier of his as a sponge, as he's not a fan of fruit cake.

    ... as long as there are no marashino (glacier) cherries or marzipan in the recipe, I'm happy. Ian, I really thought that you might be a fruit cake type person.


    I would be a bit different as I have an intolerance to Gluten and will need to find someone who can make a good cake that is Gluten free when we get married. The odd experiment baking with gluten free flour so far hasn't been very good! Will probably go for fruit but being able to cater for people with Gluten allergies might be a good selling point as there are lots of people about with it.

    I can make gluten free and also dairy free cakes if required. However for the fair I think I need to keep to "normal" cake samples. I'd be worried about mixing them up if I didn't

    I don't like wedding cake, as I can't stand marzipan or too much I had our cake maker put in a vanilla sponge layer just for me lol!

    Fruit and Cake are 2 things that should never ever be mixed....fruit, a healthy naturally occuring food stuff....and cake, a man-made(or woman made) food stuff, filled with all unhealthy bits

    The are complete opposites and should never meet in one dish.
    However christmas cake is an exception to the rule.....mmmmmm festive

    As a Liverpool supporter, I would have thought that Maraschino would have been right up your street :biggrin:

    Fruit Cake made a year in advance stuffed with booze, three layers. One for the wedding, one for the first child and one for me :wink:


    That's great to know! Mum has tried to make a Gluten free Christmas cake but apparently it didn't go too well!!

    Sounds great!

    How about mixing the two and using baileys instead of rum, sherry and brandy, (or, as well as :cool: )
