Your Illawarra wedding cake is a very special part of your wedding, it is the cutting of the wedding cake that symbolises the first task that a married couple perform together.Your wedding cake will be one of the first things guests admire when they arrive at your Illawarra wedding reception venue – it can be classical, quirky, whimsical, classical, contemporary or wildly exotic with sugar craft decorations. Traditionally a wedding cake is a rich fruitcake covered with icing, but there can be a wide variation in the cakes flavour, texture and colour.However, the modern Illawarra bride does not need to adhere only to the traditional styles anymore. Rather, wedding cakes are now as creative and innovative as the engaged couple desires for their wedding in the Illawarra region.

Today cakes can be made of almost anything, Illawarra cake designers are happy to see people’s tastes broadening to encompass other varieties for their wedding. A tower of cream filled profiteroles and caramelised sugar glaze, is a wonderful wedding cake, a stunning multi-tiered confection to miniature masterpieces. Alternatively the chocolate ‘mud’ cake has become a big favourite in weddings in the Illawarra region. A white chocolate mud cake, or a chocolate mud cake with white chocolate ‘icing’ will prove incredibly popular with your guests. Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Tia Maria have also become popular choices including mud cake and profiteroles. What about these flavours:

  • Fruit
  • Carrot and peacan
  • Rich moist chocolate cake with chocolate ganache
  • Chocolate orange
  • Caramel fudge
  • Vanilla

Ask your Illawarra cake decorator to make use of chocolate finishes and fresh flowers to compliment the colour scheme and decorations of your wedding.Whether the popularity of cupcakes can be attributed to “Sex And The City”, or whether we all yearn to re-capture the memory of our childhoods is debatable, but the sweet treat has in recent times been elevated to popularly replacing the traditional wedding cake.

Another unique idea for your Illawarra wedding is having chocolate brownies decorated and served as miniature wedding cakes to your guests.
