Wedding season is by far the busiest time of year for The Caker. The page shows a few of our favourite images of cakes that we've done. As you can see we don't do anything too traditional, and our relaxed, contemporary style is what we've become known for.
The biggest cake we can make will feed 80 people generously (which will cost $550), as anything bigger than this gets too hard to transport and cut into. If you are planning a wedding which is bigger than this, you could either get one main display cake, and another couple to have as service cakes in the kitchen, or you could get 2 or 3 beautiful cakes to have on display. We base our quotes on the size of the cake so need to know how many people you need to feed in order to give an accurate quote.
We steer clear of any sickly sweet fondant icing, and prefer to use vanilla bean cream cheese icing, which has a lovely texture and means we can keep the sweetness in check. We prefer to adorn simply with fresh flowers, freeze dried fruit or crushed pistachios. Either we can take care of the floral decoration for the cake/s, or you can arrange for your florist to put some flowers aside for us to use if you'd prefer for them all to be same.
The most popular flavours for wedding cakes tend to be the gluten free flourless dark chocolate cake, lemon raspberry and plum lime coconut. Any flavour of cake can be iced as below.
We can usually offer 20 minute tastings with 3 flavours from our menu, free of charge. This is also an opportunity for us to discuss sizes and decorations!
Be sure to provide the following information:
- What is the date of your wedding?
- How many guests are you expecting?
- Do you have another dessert?
- What is the location of the wedding?
- What is your contact number?
- How do you want the cake to look? (Please attach your images of your favourite cakes from our gallery or Instagram).
- What are you thinking in terms of flowers? Will it be us taking care of them, or your florist?
- What flavours from our menu do you like the sound of?

Wedding events at The Caker
We host regular events at The Caker where we have guest speakers and classes on all things to do with weddings - from flowers and dresses to jewellery and suits! Keep an eye on our Events page for tickets.
We also make a shelf product: luxury cake mixes. Our cake mixes are beautiful gold packages of pre-mixed cake ingredients (all from the same suppliers as those used in our kitchen everyday) - you get the same pure vanilla bean, ground almonds, 70% cocoa Belgian couverture chocolate and freeze-dried fruit powders and pieces to decorate! They are easy to bake and make wonderful gifts.
We have brides and grooms who give our cake mixes as wedding favours, and we charge wholesale prices for these. Please emails us to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
