Decorating Your Cake
There are so many options when it comes to decorating your cake or cupcakes. There are plenty of ideas on our Custom Cakes page, but let us explain a few options to you.
Our drip cakes are very popular and can be used for any occasion. Available in a wide range of colours, the drip can match your colour theme. They look great when couple with an arrangement of fresh flowers or even chocolates.
An arrangement of fresh flowers makes quite a statement. If you already have a florist planned for your event we can work with them to ensure your cake matches your floral setup. Alternatively we can source the flowers from our suppliers.
You only live once right? So why not top your decedent cake with an assortment of chocolates. Whether you have some favourites or would just like an assortment that everyone can share, we can finish your cake or cupcakes with chocolates.
A stunning acrylic topper can just complete your cake. Available in a wide variety of colours and text designs, an acrylic topper allows for that personal touch for someone special.
Choosing what size cake you want is always difficult. So hopefully we can make the decision a little easier for you.
Firstly you need to consider how your cake will be served at your event. Will you be having a separate dessert besides cake?
In which case you will be looking to serve your cake with 'Tea & Coffee' or for your guests to take home. Tea & Coffee serves typically measure 1” wide x 1” thick. If on the other hand your cake is the only dessert being served then you will want to ask for "Dessert Serves". Dessert serves measure 2” wide x 1” thick.
We typically use two heights for our cakes; a standard tier and an extended tier.
The standard tier height is approximately 5-6” tall. It is made of multiple layers of cake sandwiched together with either ganache or buttercream. A standard height tier is usually cut into two layers when serving.
The extended tier height is 7-8” tall. It is made of multiple layers of cake sandwiched together with either ganache or buttercream. Please note that due to the size of an extended tier, internal supports are used to stabilise your cake. An extended height tier is usually cut into three layers when serving.
