If one’s wedding is in the horizon, then probably one is also looking for wedding cakes. The current trends on cake design involve rose-gold accents, marbled effects, naked cakes, edible laces, roaming desserts and also dessert stations. But if a couple is confused and still not sure of what they want, here are some of Melbourne’s outstanding cake makers and dessert specialists who can translate into reality the vaguest of ideas for the wedding cakes.
Sticky Fingers, Native Cakes
As if its name hasn’t given the hint of what their cakes are about. Baker Haylay McKee is a recipe developer and a food writer who loves music and creates her masterpieces while listening to vinyl music. She also loves ingredients native to Australia, edible plants and root vegetables in her cakes. A few of her most in demand flavours are her Parsnip and Willow Blossom, Heirloom Carrot and Strawberry Sundowner, all of which incorporate edible vegetables or flowers. These succulent creations are well decorated with “exterior gardens” (often times entirely edible) that’s customised to suit the wedding flowers and the wedding theme.
Looking for elegant and luxurious cakes? Fantasy Cakes’ latest cake designs are the best choice. They use metallic, graphic and textured elements that create something glamorous yet simple. If one wants something imaginatively wild, the cake artists from Fantasy Cakes can create something up like magic. Their flavours are dependent on the structure of the cakes. However, they can be either red velvet, citrus mud or berry gateau.
Regnier Cakes, Hanging Cakes
When owner Melina Regnier saw an antique wheel, she had this great idea of how it would look hanging from the rafters decorated with that flower-trailing wedding cake. That’s when her creation “hanging cakes” was born. She has some base options to keeping in style with the venue and making sure that the cakes are not too heavy. Her cakes are beautiful semi-naked sponge cakes having floral adornments which are in line with the bridal arrangements.
Even when there are other factors to consider in a wedding like a possible Party for Hire in Melbourne or where to do the wedding reception, picking the cake maker is already a check off one’s wedding list.
