Our stunning range of wedding cakes complement every style, from boldly modern and delicately romantic to timelessly traditional. Most cakes come in a choice of colours, while a few are available simply iced for the bride’s florist to dress with fresh flowers. Some offer a choice of different cake types by tier, and all come beautifully and safely packaged.
Freshly made to order, using free-range eggs and no artificial colours, every cake tastes as good as it looks. We have been delivering stylish wedding cakes in perfect condition for 20 years, and guarantee that you’ll have a throughly attentive and reliable service.
You don’t need to be royalty to enjoy a luxurious wedding cake

So whether you’re looking for a classic design or something with a contemporary twist, we’ll have a Fiona Cairns cake to suit your taste and budget.
Each and every cake is lovingly handmade and hand-decorated using only the best ingredients, so you can be assured that your cake will taste as good as it looks.
How to decorate your own wedding cake
We have a range of undecorated wedding cakes, perfect for decorating to match your wedding colour scheme. Creating your own design is a great way to add a personal touch to your big day and if you’re looking for a little help, Fiona Cairns has some easy-to-follow tips:
1. Why not decorate your cake with homemade crystalised fruit? Pick fruits you love - cherries, rosemary and figs all work well. Cover the fruit in beaten egg white, sprinkle with caster sugar and leave to dry. Using the large fruit first, layer the crystalised fruit, from the back of the cake to the front, for a beautifully elegant finish.
2. Silk flowers, ribbons and butterflies will give your cake a magical finish. Use fondant and royal icing to stick your adornments to your cake. John Lewis sell a beautiful range that you can use to match your cake to your colour scheme.
3. Choose sweets to decorate your cake - after picking sweets to match your chosen colour palate, stick them on with royal icing and use matching ribbon round the outside of the cake. It’s easy to create sweet floral displays, but remember, don’t cover every surface of the cake - less is more.
