When preparations for your wedding enter the final month, virtually all of the main aspects will have been long since closed off and it’s down to the finer details of the day. One of these later tasks is to arrange where your guests will be seated for the reception. It can be a time-consuming process but it’s worth taking the time to organise it as carefully as possible, as all it takes is one unwise move to impact upon everyone’s enjoyment of the evening.

Strawberry chiffon cake

Strawberry Chiffon Cake Recipe

A real girly pink, this American style whisked sponge cake is made with pureed strawberries and vegetable oil rather than butter so is light but still moist and moreish. You don’t need any fancy tins to make this, just 2, 20cm (8inch) springform tins that you can easily pick up from the supermarket.

• Serves 10 • Prep: 1 hour • Cook: 25-30 minutes  • Chill: 4 hours

Cook’s tip: As this cake is quite involved, you might prefer to make the cake the day before then wrap in foil or make and fill the cake then chill overnight and just decorate with the frosting an hour or so before you want to serve it and keep it in the fridge.
