July 28 2022

What makes a wedding cake luxurious? Is it the icing, the flavour, or the decorations? In reality, it’s all of those things and more.

A luxury wedding cake is something sure to impress your guests and make your special day even more memorable. In this blog post, I’ll be talking about some of the features that can take your wedding cake from so-so to wow factor! I’ll also give some tips on how to choose a cake for your own wedding. So if you’re looking for something truly unique and special, read on!

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a luxury wedding cake is the flavour. You want a cake that tastes as good as it looks. Choose to stand out from the crowd and offer your guests something a little bit special. There’s nothing wrong with a classic Victoria sponge, but Champagne, elderflower, and rhubarb is definitely a more sumptuous and refined option! If you’re not sure what flavour you want, ask your cake maker for recommendations, most good ones should offer you samples to try and they’ll be able to help you choose a cake that tastes amazing and will also complement your other wedding desserts.

Another factor to consider is the decoration. A high end wedding cake should be beautifully decorated, with intricate designs and delicate details. It’s the attention to the smallest elements of your cake that really add finesse, such as elements of lace from the wedding dress, sugar flowers that perfectly match in with buttonholes, and bouquets or hand-dyed silk ribbons to trim the cake. Think about which personal details about you both that can be included in the design, this is what makes a cake truly bespoke. It’s also worth noting that you should choose a baker who has experience making these types of cakes so that they can create a masterpiece that you and your guests will love.

When it comes to price, in actual fact most wedding cakes can be quite expensive (all that flour, eggs and butter, Belgian chocolate and premium sugarpaste, hours spent baking and decorating, design consultations, liaising with venues and other suppliers, deliveries and so on).

However, they are definitely worth the investment. A beautiful, bespoke cake can become the centrepiece of your day and make it even more memorable and will also leave your guests with a sweet impression that will last long after the event is over.


If you’re looking for a truly luxurious piece of edible art, keep these factors in mind. Work with an experienced designer who can create a stunning cake that tastes as good as it looks. And don’t forget to choose a flavour that you and your guests will love!
