Example wants his wedding cake to look like ''something out of 'The Lord of the Rings'.''

The singer - real name Elliot Gleave - is currently planning his May wedding to Australian fiancee, Erin McNaught and although it's usually a woman's prerogative to take control of the big day, he has been ''very stern'' about the cake.

He told More Magazine: ''Erin came to me with a whole list of ideas for the cake, dresses, table plans and flower arrangements, but I've been very stern with my choices.

''I designed the cake. It looks like something out of The Lord of The Rings- it's huge! I wanted one of those mountainous cakes, where it's one huge cake made up of loads of little ones. We're having a massive tower made out of meringue and gingerbread.''

The couple met in 2011 when Erin interviewed Example for MTV Australia and it wasn't long before they were discussing marriage.

Example, 30, added: ''It was love at first sight and when Erin agreed to go out with me I decided to get a ring on her finger ASAP. We'd decided where and when we were getting married before I'd even proposed, and a month later I eventually got round to it.''
