We can all agree that cake tasting is one of the best jobs in the wedding planning process! That is, until you actually have to decide on a flavour and a million questions about baked goods start popping up into your head. Is there such a thing as too sweet? Are the more traditional flavours too plain? Do I have to stick to just one flavour? Well, we’re here to put the fun back into choosing your wedding cake! Before you spiral into a state of cake-tastrophe, check out the wedding cake flavours you need to try!
Nothing says romance like roses, so adopt that philosophy into your big day by opting for a rose flavoured cake! Rose cakes are delicately sweet without being a total sugar overload. Plus, you can take this cake flavour to the next level by incorporating some gorgeous pressed flowers! Adding an abundance of pressed roses to your floral flavoured cake is not only totally on-theme and uber-romantic, but it’s also a refreshing change to the traditional fresh blooms that often adorn wedding cakes.
A Little Bit Nutty….
We are totally nuts about pistachio flavoured wedding cakes! If you want to keep your cake choice natural, bright and fresh, then it’s time for you to also get nutty about this unique flavour. Pair this choice with a rosewater buttercream frosting for a sweet wedding treat that will have your guests coming back for seconds...and thirds!
Funfetti Filled Celebration…
The funfetti cake trend isn’t just for birthdays. It has the power to take any celebration from polite mingling to fun party vibes! This fun-loving flavour features the classic taste of vanilla but with a colourful twist....it’s jam-packed full of vibrant rainbow sprinkles! You can keep things classic by pairing this cake with vanilla frosting or let your imagination run wild and pick an eye-catching frosting flavour like lemon or strawberry. This cake choice is sure to put a smile on every guests’ dial!
Time For Tea….
You may think that Earl Grey tea is a beverage best enjoyed with cake and not as the main event, but this flavour is taking the wedding cake world by storm! This quintessentially British flavour creates a delicate and fragrant sponge that won’t be too overpowering on your guests’ taste buds. Serve your Earl Grey cake with strawberries and whipped cream to fully achieve an elegant high tea vibe!
Chocolate Meets Cherry….
If you’re the kind of bride who wants a rich and indulgent wedding cake, then opting for a black forest will tick all of those sweet boxes! Although a black forest may look like a regular old chocolate cake, it has a tangy twist. Known for its enticing cherry filling, this cake will definitely have you licking your spoon and reaching for a second slice!
Matcha Made In Heaven….
In recent years, the world seems to have gone mad for matcha and we can understand why! Green tea wedding cakes will be just as popular in this new decade. Not only is the flavour intriguingly scrumptious, but the unique colour of this cake also lends itself perfectly to any couple planning a wedding that champions organic beauty and natural colours.
Pop The Pink Bubbles…
Have your cake and...drink it too? We are loving the pink champagne cake trend right now! Not only is it a deliciously cheeky cake flavour, but the end result is also almost too pretty to eat. This rosy coloured cake is fun, flirty and romantic which makes it totally Instagrammable and perfect for your wedding day!
If you’re planning a summertime wedding, opt for a cake flavour that exudes a zest for life and fun in the sun. Lemon and orange are the perfect flavours to choose for a sunny celebration. Combine these flavours to create an irresistible citrus combination or, if you’re opting for a multi-tiered wedding cake, alternate the flavours throughout the tiers. Top the cake with orange wedges, lemon slices and zesty meringues to achieve the cake of summertime dreams.
Sweet As Honey…
Honey may seem like an odd choice for a wedding cake flavour, but this beloved taste is sure to delight your sugar-loving guests! This flavour channels all things sweet without being too sickly. The light fluffiness of the cake paired with the scrumptious syrupy taste will melt on your guests’ tongues. Decorate your honey flavoured wedding cake with a sweet, syrupy drip and clusters of indulgent honeycomb.
