6 Unique Wedding Cake Flavours to Wow Your Guests

Sharing is Caring! Show us some love:

When it comes to wedding cakes the usual recommendation is to keep it simple and stick to the classic.

Despite this is the best way to please a larger number of people, if you are a more sophisticated and adventurous bride, you might feel your wedding cake can be perfect to show some innovation and personality to your wedding guests.

Playing with the flavour of your cake can be a tricky task and requires not only an ultimate good taste but also a great dose of common sense that only the most experienced cake designers and bakers have developed over the years.

Nadia Jay, the baker at Cake Me by Surprise advises that it’s always important to choose flavours that will complement the meal you have chosen for the wedding breakfast, therefore if the meal is light, then choosing a richer flavour for your cake should be a must. 

“If you are having a 4-5 course meal, possibly choose lighter options with an almond, honey or vanilla based sponge, over the chocolate and fruit cakes”, says Nadia.

Another piece of great advice Nadia offers is to choose flavours that are seasonal, so for summer weddings, it would be lovely to go with citrus flavours, and opt for wild berry jams and passion fruit curds. 

“Consider serving your cakes with fresh berries, and you can always request your baker/venue assist with providing fresh creams to be enjoyed with the cake upon its cutting”, advises Nadia.

And she also comments:

“In the autumn, chestnut and ginger sponged cakes are divine, or maybe consider an apple spiced cake or pumpkin”.
