WEDDING CAKES

 

Decorations

In terms of icing, we steer clear of any fondant - we prefer to use our signature vanilla bean cream cheese icing, which has a lovely texture and taste. You can choose to have your cake iced completely with a full coverage layer, iced in a nearly naked style (with the icing scraped back) or completely naked (iced just between the layers).

As for extra touches of colour on your cake, we use fresh flowers, freeze dried fruits and things like crushed pistachios and citrus curds or berry coulis. (We do not use food colouring in our kitchen).

We can take care of the floral decoration for your cake according to your brief. Alternatively, you can arrange for your florist to do the flowers at the venue or put some flowers aside for us to use if you'd prefer to have blooms that match exactly with your bouquet. For us to supply the flowers is an extra $30.

Flavours

The most popular flavours for wedding cakes tend to be our Blackforest cake and Lemon Raspberry cake, but they are all delicious! Our unique flavours make the cake a talking point at your wedding.

Note - any flavour of cake can be made Gluten Free and any cake suits being iced with our white vanilla bean cream cheese icing.

DELIVERY

Wedding cakes are too precious to be delivered by a courier, and unfortunately we are such a small team that we are unable to deliver ourselves. Cakes can be picked up the day before or the day of the wedding, and will be packaged safely for transport - the boot is the best place for them to sit!

SAMPLES

We offer all wedding clients take-away samples, free of charge. We can then proceed to discuss sizes, decorations and logistics over email.
