Alternative wedding cakes are a growing trend. Earlier this month Brompton-based Glaves Butchers reported a mass of orders for pork pie wedding’cakes’.

Staff enjoyed making a three tier triumph for a couple’s special day - the third of its kind to be hand made in the small bakery alongside Glaves’ traditional cayley lane shop.

And with more “cakes” on the order book for coming months, the business is set to enjoy a wedding season boom.

Butcher and business director James Glaves said: “Its quite a surprising turn we’ve taken as a business. I never thought as a butcher I’d be getting orders for wedding cakes!”
