Once upon a time, wedding cakes had a tendency to be quite plain. Then Chris Murphy, the creative cake-maker behind Tuck-Box, came along...

An artist-turned-baker, Chris brought colour and humour to the wedding world with his bold bakes - think Quentin Blake left loose in a bakery with Mary Berry's cooking know-how.

His aim: to tell your love story in sugar. And boy, does he deliver.  The cakes are devilishly tasty too  - our favourite is his chocolate cake with a ginger kick - and his designs are brilliantly fun and never fail to put a smile on our faces at Brides HQ.

MORE CAKE INSPIRATION

Alongside his kooky statement bakes, Chris does the classics well too, showing off his decorating skills elegantly. It is his painted, sculpted and biscuit cakes that have captured our hearts (and stomachs) though... 

"People often think that my cakes are about making a statement," he says, "but I strip it back, telling couples to forget what's expected. It means my cakes are incredibly personal to my customers."
