Wedding Cake Suppliers

One of the most memorable moments at your wedding reception is cutting your wedding cake. It is not only a significant part of the celebration, but also a great opportunity to take some beautiful photos. To ensure you make the most of this special moment, you need to select a wedding cake that not only matches your theme, but also tastes delicious.

Thankfully, our team of expert wedding cake suppliers can combine a variety of amazing flavours to create the different tiers of your wedding cake, and they can also create a design that is unique to you as a couple. Whether you want to incorporate your pets or personal hobbies into your cake design, opt for a traditional fruit cake or create a completely unique and modern design, our team of expert wedding cake designers can cater to your every need.

When it comes to the cost of your wedding cake, it is important to keep in mind that prices can vary significantly. You should allocate a portion of your budget specifically for your cake from the beginning. The average couple spends £300 on their wedding cake, but it is not uncommon for couples to spend much more for a cake with a wow-factor. If you opt for a custom-designed cake with multiple tiers and intricate details like fondant flowers and hand piping, you can expect to pay over £1,000.

Several factors influence the cost of your wedding cake, including the size, intricacy of the design, and the type of ingredients. Naked wedding cakes require less work than fondant iced cakes, and a sponge with Champagne and fresh raspberries will be more expensive than a simple vanilla sponge. Additionally, you may need to pay extra for your cake supplier to deliver the cake to the venue.

When deciding on the size of your wedding cake, consider the number of guests attending your wedding. A simple three-tier buttercream cake will serve approximately 100 guests and cost around £400. For smaller weddings of up to 30 guests, a single-tier wedding cake will suffice, while you will need five to six layers to feed weddings with over 150 guests. Your cake maker may be able to save you money by creating a smaller cake as your centrepiece and supplementing it with sheet cakes that can be cut in the kitchen to ensure everyone has a slice.

For those couples who prefer a non-traditional cake, there are plenty of alternatives available, including wedding cupcakes, cake pops, macaron towers, and much more. You should arrange to meet your wedding cake supplier to discuss your specific requirements, and don’t be afraid to choose a cake that is out of the ordinary!
