The wedding cake is possibly one of the most established elements of a wedding day. From choosing the cake maker, design and flavour choice, to the ritual of cutting the cake together, it is undoubtedly an essential part of culinary planning. Traditionally, the wedding cake takes the form of a tiered masterpiece covered in thick white fondant icing and perhaps a few fondant roses.

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.
