Wedding Cake Flavours

Wedding Cake Flavours

We have a great selection of over 50 cake flavours to choose from and although fruit cake may be the traditional flavour for wedding cakes we offer a whole range of delicious cake flavours which are freshly baked in our bakery for the modern bride to choose from.

 

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.

 

We also offer a range of delicious dietary cake flavours including our popular eggless wedding cake flavour, vegan wedding cake flavour, gluten free wedding cake flavour and our new sugarfree wedding cake flavour.

We had a great day out at the Welcome Hotel, Stratford Upon Avon, last week. The Live 24 magazine are launching their new wedding section in September and we were asked, by the ‘Live team” if they could feature our wedding cakes in their first wedding issue.

 

Set in an opulent country mansion on 150 landscaped acres, this luxury hotel is 1.8 miles from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and 5.9 miles from Charlecote Park. This resplendent hotel was a perfect wedding venue for the photo shoot and an absolute perfect venue for any wedding reception.

Wedding Cakes Hot Topics

In this Month’s West Midlands Wedding Magazine Hot Topics, we were asked to answer the following readers question:-

 

Q. My maid-of-honour had a bad experience with her cake maker while planning her own wedding a few months’ back. We’re really keen to have a bespoke cake design, so how can we ensure our cake maker supplies us with what we want?

 

Choosing a wedding cake supplier to design a bespoke wedding cake can be daunting, simply because there are so many out there. If you’re about to embark on a journey to construct the most important edible element of your big day then you need to do some work beforehand. Before your wedding consultation it is a good idea to collect together some ideas of what you like or dislike in cakes. If you have any ideas, pictures of cakes, material swatches, colour swatches, a picture of your flowers then take these or you can even do some little sketches to bring along (doesn’t matter if they are not great!).

 

When booking your consultation, ask your cake supplier to provide some cake samples at your meeting so that you can try the cakes. Also, read some testimonials from past couples – they should be able to supply some for you upon request. Once you have found a cake designer that you like and you have decided on a bespoke design it is vital to get the cake designer to sketch the design out and label it with the colours, flavours, embellishment details and sizes etc so that you can check that it is what you really want.

 

Remember, what is in your head and the designers head maybe very different and unless you get a sketch drawn you will never know whether you are both thinking along the same lines.

Wedding Cake Budgeting

Sticking to the big day budget can be exhausting and difficult and in this months Your West Midlands Wedding magazine we were asked to answer the big question in the Hot Topic experts advice section.

 

Q . My fiance and I are working to a tight budget with our catering, so would like to serve our wedding cake as the desert. We want it to look and taste like a final course though, rather than a plain piece of cake. What might fit the bill?

 

Sugarbliss Cake Company’s Answer :-

 

Your wedding cake designer should be able to recommend a number of different flavours, some of which are more suitable for a dessert than others. You could try a rich chocolate cake served with fresh strawberries and a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or perhaps a refreshing lemon curd cake served with raspberry coulis and a drizzle of fresh cream.

 

Whatever you decide, remember the cake will need to be taken away well in advance of the dessert for the caterers to cut up into pieces. This might mean your cake will only be on show at the reception for a short amount of time, so you might want to consider having a smaller or fake cake for display purposes only, with the cutting cakes or cakes in the kitchen.

 

Another lovely option is to have individual cakes on each table. A 10 inch cake beautifully decorated with flowers could work well as an alternative centre piece. When the time comes for dessert, the caterers could then bring bowls of strawberries and jugs of cream to go with the cake.

New Products At Sugarbliss Cake Craft

The last few weeks have been really hectic with wedding cakes to design, make and deliver, sugar models and sugar flowers to create and celebration cakes of all shapes and designs to complete.

However, it is always exciting to find the time to review new products which have recently arrived in our Sugarbliss Cake Craft & Cake Decorations shop. We have just had arrived our first supply of the absolutely fantastic Beau Product Flavours and extracts. There are a whole range of delightful flavours to make your cakes taste superb every time from candy floss to madagascas vanilla extract.

The flavours are engineered from building blocks of small units of flavours or extracts that are carefully put together to form a specific profile. By combining these buidling blocks, the flavours are adjusted in different directions. For example, ripe, flowery or fresh to produce a unique finished flavour profile.

One of the most common challenges when making flavours, especially those based on citrus, is heat stability. These flavours therefore have been developed for a bake safe consistent flavour.
