Wedding cake designs don’t just stop at the decorations and choosing a different delicious cake flavour to compliment your wedding cake design is as important.
You can decide on a different flavour for each tier which will create all sorts of contrasting flavours with a combination of inventive fillings to really surprise your guests, once the cake is cut.
Have a look at some of our most popular flavours to help you choose the perfect wedding cake design.
Fruit cake: A must-have flavour for the traditional bride. Fruit cake goes a long way and with a very generous shelf life, making it a great choice for preservation or sending pieces to those that couldn’t attend the day. Traditionally, the bottom layer of a wedding cake was cut at the wedding, with the middle tier being served to guests and the top tier being kept for the christening of the couple’s first baby.
Chocolate: A perfect choice for chocoholics and a guaranteed hit with most of your guests. Chocolate cake can vary in richness and works well with an endless list of fillings. Put a unique spin on this classic flavour with different filling such as mint or really treat your guests with a chocolate fudge filling.
Vanilla: This classic sponge wedding cake flavour remains the most popular flavour for our wedding cakes and will be popular with your younger and older guests. Vanilla makes a great base for just about any flavour and can be combined with a wide selection of different fillings.
Red velvet: This ever popular silky smooth cake flavour is irresistible as it not only looks great but tastes amazing. Hide underneath white icing for a surprise colour when the cake is cut or make a real statement with a red velvet naked wedding cake.
White Chocolate with Raspberry: This winning combination is perfect for those looking for a flavour with a difference. The sweet white chocolate really comes to life when paired with the fruitiness of the raspberry filling. Perfect for bringing something a little unique to your wedding cake.
Lemon: A great choice for summer cakes. As one of the most popular flavours you can guarantee lemon cake will go down well on your day.
Carrot: Carrot cake makes a brilliant alternative to more common flavours such as chocolate and fruit. Carrot cake can be very moist, particularly when paired with buttercream, so it may not make a suitable bottom tier flavour choice.
Pink Champagne: Cake, bubbly and weddings are a matched made in heaven so it’s no surprise that pink champagne flavoured wedding cakes are increasing in demand this year. The pretty shade can be achieved using our pink Colour Splash food colouring gel too. Popular fillings for a champagne cake include rum flavoured custard, white chocolate or rich whipped cream.
Coconut and Lime: Channel the tropics with this surprisingly delicious flavour combination. Coconut has surged in popularity over recent years and the addition of tangy lime filling gives it that extra kick that guests will love. This fun-filled flavour is perfect for summer weddings or tropical destination weddings.
Marble cake: Can’t decide between vanilla and chocolate? Who says you have to! The two popular flavours work incredibly well together to create an irresistible marble cake that is guaranteed to tantalise your guests’ tastebuds.
