How to Choose Your Wedding Cake Flavours

For some, this may be one of the easiest decisions they will make regarding their bespoke wedding cake, but for others it can feel like an overwhelming task with so many flavours to choose from, but not to fear! I will be giving you my top tips on how to choose the wedding cake flavours you will love.

1. Choose flavours you like

This has to be the top tip of tips for choosing cake flavours. Make sure you choose cake flavours that represent you both as a couple and ones that you are drawn to. I know you want your guests to enjoy their dessert and they will if they know that this cake and its flavours truly represent the people they love, support and want to share this day with. If they are not fans of the cake flavours that’s fine too.

2. Consider the season

It may come as no surprise to you that there is a strong psychological and physiological link between our mood and the type of food we choose to eat at certain times of the year. So go for light, fresh and fruity flavours for that spring/summer vibe and for autumn/winter, you can afford to indulge in rich chocolatey flavours for a heart warming celebration.

3. Have a different flavour for each tier

If you just cannot decide on a single flavour – go for two, or three! Choose the flavour you feel would be a crowd pleaser and then give your guests an alternative. This is a win, win because not only will you get to enjoy more of your favourite flavours, but your guests will appreciate the variety too.

4. Choose something different to dessert

Often, the wedding cake is served after your main meal and the last thing your guests will want after a chocolate dessert is another chocolate dessert, so choose a flavour that will be a welcomed contrast to the palate.

5. Taste samples of your cake flavour

You may have in your mind exactly which cake flavours you want until you try the cake samples on offer. So often, couples have sampled flavours they hadn’t even considered or didn’t think they’d like and loved them. This stage helps you explore what you really like so that you can make the best decision.

To give you another little helping hand, I have listed below our very own cake flavours that are both popular and great suggestions for specific times of the year.

Spring/ Summer                                        Wedding Autumn/ Winter Wedding

  • Zesty Lemon                                                 – Apple Cinnamon

  • White Chocolate & Raspberry                    – Red Velvet
  • Spiced Carrot & Walnut                               – Salted Caramel

This part of your wedding planning should be fun so above all else, enjoy the process!

It was a pleasure working with Bianca to create our wedding cake for the day. She took an enormous amount of time and effort to ensure she was delivering exactly what we were looking for. She's extremely professional, kind and overall joy to work with. The cake was immaculately put together and got set up on the day with the utmost care. Bianca ensures that the couple does not have any stress and works directly with the venue/coordinator for delivery and set up. All you need to do is share what you're looking for and Bianca delivers 10/10.

Bianca was amazing, aside from the cake being beautiful and SO delicious, she was an amazing supplier as she just handled everything herself such as communicating with the venue and getting the cake set up there. I had zero organising to do on that front, which trust me when you get to that stage is EXACTLY what you need from a supplier! She was amazing, can't recommend highly enough.

Our experience with Beez cakes was amazing, very friendly and professional. From beginning to end the communication was great, we always felt that Bianca was looking after us. On the day the cake looked incredible, it was beautifully moist & had delicious flavours of chocolate and vanilla. We had lots of compliments about it afterwards. A huge thank you to Bianca and her team, we would recommend them 100%. A&M ❤️

Beez Cakes provided our wedding cake in May 2021. The sample cakes were the best we tried, and the cake on the day exceeded expectations. The service provided was brilliant - really responsive and accommodating to our needs, and made for an all-round great experience. Would definitely recommend

Myself and my now husband! wanted to use independent suppliers for our wedding especially during the covid pandemic. When I found Bianca from Beez Cakes I knew she was the cake artist I wanted. Bianca was easy to contact and also sent us some cake samples because we weren’t able to meet face to face. Then we had a phone call and talked about what we wanted and what flavours. When our cake arrived on our special day, it was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Beez Cakes to everyone looking at getting a cake for any occasion! Thank you Bianca!!!
