Wedding Cakes at Perth Weddings

| 22/03/2012

Wedding cakes have become the center piece of every wedding. In the past traditional white cakes graced every other wedding, but now cakes have evolved into several patterns, colors, shapes and flavors. Selecting a wedding cake can be confusing. The best way of going about it is to gather all the information available then make a list of all your preferred options. Then, considering the factors like price, ingredients and your theme colors, eliminate one by one until you remain with your ultimate option.

Types of Wedding Cakes

perth wedding cakesWhite cake – It is the traditional wedding cake that is a common choice for those who like their cake a bit plain. The ingredients are kept simple without too many flavors. It is a perfect cake to include tiers. The frosting may be decorated with a dash of different color patterns. A banquet of flowers can be placed at the top or an assortment of fruit pieces. Ribbons can also be used to decorate the individual tiers with the theme colors.

Chocolate cake – This is a favorite for all chocolate lovers. It can be covered in white frosting to give the usual traditional appearance or it can be all chocolate giving a mouth watering treat. Fresh fruits or flowers are normally used for garnishing in between tiers or can be placed at the top. They can also be arranged to cascade along the tiers.

Marble cake – Usually designed to have an outstanding marble design. It can be covered with white or colored frosting but the marble design still stands out. It is the next most common option after white and chocolate cakes.

Lemon cake – Lemon wedding cake is a refreshing option for those who are not fond of too much sugar. It has a tantalizing lemon flavor resulting from adding both the lemon juice and the yellow skin to the ingredients. To complete the flavor, the frosting is also made from combining fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar.

This list is by no means conclusive as new types of cakes continue to be created daily. Buying a cake need not be a vexing task, if you put a number of considerations in to perspective.

Factors to Consider when Buying a Wedding Cake


cakes tend to be delicate to handle. It is advisable to purchase from a baker who will do delivery as well, as they already have customized packaging and transporting equipment.


However tempting it is to pick the most sophisticated wedding cake, you should stick to your budget to avoid financial shortages.

Number of people

A cake that looks like royalty is a sight to behold, but it will not help matters if some guests only get to feast on it with their eyes. The cake should be big enough to grant everybody a piece, and special guests can carry some home.


Some ingredients like nuts tend to have a high possibility of causing allergies. They should be used with caution to avoid having some guests left out of your wedding cake delicacies.
