Wedding Cake Flavours

Wedding cake flavours

Wedding cakes are becoming more and more elaborate. Gone are the days of a 3 tiered fruit cake, held up with pillars, fresh flowers and a plastic bride and groom on top. There are so many different flavours, shapes, sizes and colours of wedding cakes available. Choosing your perfect cake is a yummy mine field all on it own.

Often brides and grooms have a very clear idea of either flavour or style. However turning up at your cake makers to be greeted with flavoursΒ you never thought about, can be a little overwhelming. I have put together my top 10 flavours for wedding cakes. Personally I am chocolate lover. When we first went to look at cakes we had a 3 tier chocolate cake in mind, covered in chocolate twirls. However, when the quote came back for Β£600 my husband nearly keeled over! In the end we had an 8 inch chocolate cake covered in a rich chocolate ganache, sat on top of 70 chocolate ganache cupcakes. The cupcakes were served as dessert with strawberries and fresh cream. When we married it was very popular.

My top picks
  • Chocolate with a chocolate ganache filling.
  • Classic Victoria sponge with fresh cream and strawberries.
  • Lemon cake with a vanilla mousse.
  • Raspberry and white chocolate.
  • Red Velvet with a chocolate mousse.
  • Chocolate with a raspberry mousse filling.
  • Raspberry ripple cake.
  • Champagne infused cake with fresh strawberries and cream.
  • Vanilla with vanilla mousse.
  • Red Velvet with cream cheese.

Every good wedding cake specialist will be able to provide you with samples to try so you know just how the cake will taste and what the texture will be like. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to find the cake doesn’t quite live up to expectations. So make sure you try before you buy, to be sure you get what you want. If you and your husband-to-be are unable to decide on one flavour why not have different tiers with different flavours?

What is your favourite flavour cake? Mine’s a chocolate cake…. yummy!

    Chocolate cake is always a winner for me, although the good old classic Victoria sponge is yummy too! Now I need cake and a cup of tea πŸ™‚ x

    I am always so shocked at the cost of wedding cakes, my brother paid about Β£600 for us and hardly anyone ate any so he ended up freezing a lot of it x

      They can be very expensive, but I bet it tasted amazing for your special day.

    Champagne infused cake sounds very appropriate! Yummm delicious. We did a ‘Great Wedding Bake Off’ for our cake and invited guests to make a cake to bring. We then picked our favourite and ‘cut’ that as our wedding cake – leaving all the cakes open for guests to eat all through the evening.

    We had a small heart-shaped cake on the top with smaller heart shapes underneath, chocolate inside covered with white chocolate and orange chocolate. Now I feel like cake πŸ™‚
