A pork pie wedding cake is my idea of satisfaction

KIERAN HOWARD: Thanks very much for the hand, foot and mouth disease Louie

Wow, I’m so impressed that Marks & Spencer is now giving people the chance to order a three-tier pork pie wedding cake.

I’ve always been more of a savoury chap than sweet, so a big slab of Melton Mowbray pie will satisfy me much more than some fruit cake with marzipan and icing all over it.

My boyfriend’s sister got married last year and instead of a traditional cake they opted for a cake made of cheese.

I remember going to a wedding about 20 years ago where the wedding cake was entirely white chocolate and had been made by Choccywoccydoodah of Brighton.

It was very impressive and back then was an unusual sight.

I’ve also attended a wedding where the cake was made up of hundreds of individual cupcakes, arranged to look like a three-tier cake.

This was very clever and so easy to serve up.

The only sweet-tasting cake I love is a Millionaire’s Shortbread, so maybe somebody could invent a wedding cake version for me?

Saying that, it’s a bit late as I’m already married!

Lou: As a vegetarian the pork pie wedding cake doesn’t particularly appeal to me, but I have to say I do like a quirky wedding cake.

My boyfriend’s sister got married last year and instead of a traditional cake they opted for a cake made of cheese.

Constructed by their local dairy, it was a towering mound of brie, cheddar, goat’s cheese, and stilton.

I’ve never been keen on fruit cake so I was very happy.

It was cut and served as part of the evening buffet and it meant that no-one got that annoying end piece which is just marzipan and icing.

Plus the best bit was the cake topper. Usually you get naff, generic figures of a bloke in a suit and a woman in a white frock.

But as a couple they collect Lego Minifigures, so they’d opted for a Lego bride and groom.

It was a great personal touch and really finished the ‘cake’ off.

If you can use any foodstuff as a wedding cake these days, I’m going to have to start looking into a ‘curry cake’.

Mmm, tasty!
