10 Canberra Wedding Cakes Makers to follow

April 1, 2020

Finding the perfect wedding cake for your wedding can be a bit daunting. If you’re based in Canberra there are so many great cake makers, but it can be hard narrowing down which one may suit you best.

In this article I’m going break down:

  • What wedding cake makers are there in Canberra
  • What you should look for in a wedding cake maker
  • How you can customise your wedding cake
  • How many months notice you should give for your wedding cake maker to get the cake of your dreams created 

What should you look for in a wedding cake?

When searching for the perfect wedding cake, there are several things to consider:

  • Don’t choose a cake until you’ve got the idea and styles down pat for your big day – knowing this will determine how you want your cake to be styled.
  • Have a budget in mind – the cost per slice can range from $3 to $30, so it’s best to understand how much you’re willing to spend on a cake.
  • Think about how many guests you are having – A three tier cake can feed roughly 50 – 100 guests, so you may need more tiers with more guests.
  • Choose the flavour that you want most – Don’t let others dictate what flavours you should have. It’s your wedding cake after all!
  • Think about what environment you’re going to be in – If you’re having an outdoors wedding, bare in mind that the cake you’re going to have may get warm very quickly if outside.
  • Get a detailed delivery plan – Make sure that the cake maker you select will give you a solid detailed delivery plan and be aware of the timings of everything.
  • If you’d rather a cheese cake or donuts, go for it – Whilst a wedding cake it something that a lot of people have as a tradition, don’t be afraid to go ahead and get a donut stack, or even a cheese cake (yes, I’m talking cheese and crackers!).

What sorts of customisation is there in a wedding cake?

When it comes to your wedding cake, there are a lot of different customisation options out there:

  • Colours – The most obvious one, but you can have any colour imaginable, including some metallic colours such as gold and silver.
  • Flavours – You can choose from Mocha, to Hazlenut, to even watermelon if you want to be super creative and you have a cake maker who is up to the challenge.
  • Tier styles – You can have several different tier styles when it comes to wedding cakes. You could have it as the traditional style with several larger circle forming upwards, or have a single tall pillar.
  • Accessories – Flowers, sparkles, and other little touches are the perfect way to finish off having a wedding cake.

How long do you need to order a cake out?

The process of having a custom wedding cake made and created can take from 3-6 months. Like many other custom elements of your wedding, many vendors do require time to make sure that they get your vision perfect. 

Whilst this may seem excessive, this is to make sure that they get the best possible cake created for you.
