Hen/stag or sten parties are great, but they can be a little too focused around alcohol and, although modern couples are pushing the boundaries when it comes to the big 'dos', they can still be incredibly expensive and not that much fun! Gather your BFF squad and head to the London Dessert Festival to make sure you have a day full of laughs and delicious food - what's not to love?

"There are so many options available that are perfect for winter weddings. You could opt for a semi-naked design adorned with deep red flowers, pine cones, holly, ivy leaves and foliage or go for sugar versions instead, which you can keep after the big day. Think of the kind of icing you want on your wedding cake and if you want texture applied, whether it be appliqué, stencilling or edible lace. Deep reds, purples and various shades of blues, greens and whites would be a great way of incorporating the time of year. For the flavours, how about cinnamon, mixed spice, nutmeg and clove? Just thinking of these spices will give your guests a warm wintry feeling."

Sweet-toothed diners are in for a treat this World Chocolate Day as London added a new luxury dessert parlour to its dining offer. Situated on Wembley Park Boulevard, Haute Dolci has a stunning open design that draws inspiration from both Italian and French heritage; the eatery combines fashion sensibilities with the art of food and desserts, to ensure a sumptuous and unparalleled customer journey. The restaurant boasts a backdrop of exquisite finishes inspired by Statuario marble and on the mezzanine level, a cherry blossom tree will transport diners to Paris' iconic cherry blossom display outside of the Notre-Dame, adding to the air of elegance at this must-visit dessert house. The tree, constructed from a real cherry tree trunk and six metres in diameter, will provide an ethereal focal point to the decadent eatery, with beautiful bloom-filled branches spanning across the width of the restaurant.

Keep it light and fresh. The classic vanilla sponge with seedless raspberry jam and vanilla bean buttercream is always very popular. Alternatively, you could switch up the fillings with a mango and passionfruit coulis and buttercream. Peach conserve and melba buttercream is also very delicate.Zesty lemon sponge layered with lemon curd and buttercream is always a hit, or you could add a twist with lemon and elderflower buttercream paired with blueberry conserve. For the chocoholics, a chocolate sponge layered with black cherry conserves and buttercream or salted caramel would be perfect.

Back in the 2000s, I decided to take part in a few courses. I then started baking for friends and family while I continued learning. I decided in 2007 to properly open my business, Lake Thomas Cakes. In addition to making cakes, I also hold another job working for the civil service. I offer a professional but friendly service with a detailed consultation and communication throughout the planning process. I only use quality ingredients which is reflected in the cakes I produce.

Before becoming a full-time cake maker, I had an 18-year career in banking. Becoming a mum changed my priorities, and working from home made more sense. I've always enjoyed baking, from a young age with my grandmother and I started making my son's birthday cakes and bakes for family occasions and the business developed from there. I had a private tutor who encouraged and gave me the confidence to transform my passion into a business, and Jeannette's Great Cakes was born in 2009. In more recent years, my husband has joined the team, and it's become a family effort.

I've always had a passion for creativity, from art and textiles to photography and design. Having studied art and textiles at college, I spent several years doing 'normal' jobs, but the pull to do something more creative was always there. I qualified in cake making nearly 10 years ago and set up The Polkadot Cakery soon after. Having spent some time balancing baking with my day job, I finally took the plunge three years ago to purely focus on my business – and I haven't looked back. The Polkadot Cakery is the perfect combination of my two passions; weddings and creative design. I love being involved in the process and using colours and textures in my creations.

As we're facing challenging times, don't give up. You can still have the cake of your dreams, even on a smaller wedding. Scale your bake down. Smaller creations look just as effective but are more cost-effective. Naturally, you'll have fewer guests celebrating your big day, but other people who were unable to attend can still have a slice if you wish to distribute it. If you feel your creation is too small, then consider having some fake tiers made. This will make it look bigger, and your guests won't even realise some are not real.
