How to Choose a Perfect Wedding Cake

The wedding cake is a centrepiece of any wedding celebration since it reflects your personal taste and style. Therefore, it's crucial to select a cake that not only looks beautiful but tastes delicious as well.

Selecting the perfect wedding cake can be an exciting yet daunting task. There are many different styles and flavours to choose from, ranging from classic vanilla or chocolate to more exotic options like red velvet or lemon.

Whatever your preference, ensure that your wedding cake is nothing short of perfection. This article guides you through the process of selecting a perfect wedding cake that reflects your style and taste.

Understand Your Wedding Theme & Style

Before diving into cake flavours and designs, it's crucial to have a clear vision of your wedding theme and style. The venue, colour scheme, and overall ambience all factor into the decision-making process.

For a rustic outdoor wedding, a naked or semi-naked cake similar to the 2 tier Sierra adorned with fresh flowers might be ideal. On the other hand, an elegant and formal affair may call for a 2-tier Precious pearls, classic tiered cake with intricate piping details.

Determine the Guest Count

As a rule of thumb, a three-tier cake can serve approximately 50 to 100 guests, while a five-tier cake can cater to around 200 guests. You don't want to run out of cake or end up with excess that goes to waste and at the same time, you don’t want to leave your guests missing out on that spectacular Wedding Cake!

Ensure you discuss the guest count with our cake designer to find the appropriate size.

Consider Dietary Restrictions

Today, it's common for guests to have dietary restrictions or allergies. When choosing your wedding cake, consider accommodating these needs by offering gluten-free, vegan, or nut-free options.

Lushcups Gourmet Bakery in Sydney offers gluten-free and nut-free options for all their cakes.

Taste Testing

Now comes the enjoyable part – tasting! Schedule appointments with different bakeries or cake designers to sample a variety of cake flavours and fillings. Keep in mind that the taste of the cake is just as crucial as its appearance.

Choose the Right Frosting

Once you've chosen the flavour(s), it's time to select the frosting. The frosting affects not only the cake's appearance but also its taste and texture. The most common types of frosting are vanilla and fondant.

All our cakes are covered and filled with vanilla frosting, except for red velvet. Red velvet cakes are filled with cream cheese frosting. Vanilla frosting is soft, creamy, and simply delightful.

Opt for Fresh & Seasonal Ingredients

Using fresh and seasonal ingredients for your cake not only enhances the taste but also supports local producers and ensures the best quality. Seasonal fruits, flowers, and flavours can add a touch of uniqueness to your wedding cake. Our

Personalise with a Cake Topper

A cake topper is an excellent way to add a personal touch to your wedding cake. It can be anything from a traditional bride-and-groom figurine to a custom-made name topper featuring your name, like in our three-tier-ALEXIS cake. Or you can go for an exotic topper as featured in our three-tier-SARAH wedding cake.
