What types of wedding cakes are available?
Floral - Floral cakes remain the most popular choice for wedding cakes particularly those with a summer theme. Sugar flowers are traditionally the chosen centrepiece for floral cakes.
Tall - Tall cakes with lots of tiers are the perfect way to make an impression at any wedding. Tall cakes are also fantastic for large weddings as they will make sure everybody gets a slice.
Naked - If you want something that fits the theme and you’re not a fan of icing or buttercream, but love fresh fruit and ingredients, naked cakes are an excellent and modern wedding cake choice.
Painted - Hand-painted cakes are perfect for personalising your cake, emphasising the talent of the cake decorator and adding a work of art to your wedding table.
Chalkboard - Chalkboard cakes are created using black sugar paste dusted in icing sugar and finished with a hand-painted message using white edible paint and a thin brush.
Metallic - Metallic cakes have shimmering finishes of gold, bronze or silver which look incredible - making for the perfect photo opportunity on your big day.
Lace - Lace can be draped or wrapped around a cake to give depth to its design or simply used to add an elegant finishing touch to cakes of all shapes and sizes.
Chocolate - With so many chocolate cake recipes ranging from dark to white, there are lots of melt-in-your-mouth possibilities for serving chocolate on your big day.
What should I look for in a Wedding Cake Baker?
You don't need any formal qualifications to get started as a wedding cake baker but some employers might look for candidates with a level of education such as a Level 2 Certificate in Bakery or Level 3 Diploma in Professional Bakery.
Before you choose a wedding cake baker, you could ask to see examples of their work. Wedding cake bakers are known for their artistry and you want to be confident that they can produce something special for your big day. You don’t want your wedding cake to be the first cake they have ever baked so make sure to ask how many they have made in the past.
You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you wedding cake reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the wedding cake you might like for your special day.
