In the lead up to your wedding, there are a whole lot of decisions you need to make. From what flowers to have for the ceremony to how much booze should be offered at reception drinks; and where your guests will stay when they come from out of town. The list goes on and on.
One decision that is often overlooked in favour of more glamorous choices is where you get your cake made. It's important not just because it helps tie everything together visually but also because it can help set the tone for the day with its flavour profile - chocolate or lemon?
After all, this is one treat that everyone will enjoy! So if you're looking for Melbourne's best cake shops, then read on...

Frequently Asked Questions
Fondant has a much more candy-like flavour than rich and soft buttercream. Many couples find the flavour of hard, candy-like fondant icing to be less pleasant than buttercream.
Buttercream is soft and must be spread by hand, meaning it will never lay as flat on the surface of a cake as a firm, smooth fondant. So if you’re dreaming of an architectural cake with intricate designs, buttercream is not the icing for you.
Be sure to try both options at your cake tasting and discuss which option is best for you with your cake baker!
Generally, a slice of cake that is 4 inches tall, 1 inch wide, and 2 inches in length. This is the standard size of a slice of wedding cake.
Do yourself a favour and do as much of the work ahead of time, including baking the cakes; the cake layers will hold, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
It’s also much easier to work with cold cake, so even just freezing it the night before is helpful.
Depending on cake size, serving sizes, and what decorations are included in the design, wedding cakes can vary in price.
Will you be serving coffee sized portions or serving your cake for dessert? How many guests do you need to serve? Do you have a topper, or do you want fresh flowers in your decorations as well?
Before deciding how much to spend on your cake, consider what is included in that cost.
The average wedding cake around Australia costs $537. So couples in Western Australia and Victoria can expect to pay a bit above average for a cake.
Don’t forget to factor delivery in with your cake cost as well. It may be tempting to save costs by having someone pick it up yourself, but many suppliers don’t allow this. Don’t run the risk and pay the extra for delivery, and you won’t regret it!
As the centrepiece of your reception, your wedding cake needs to be beautiful and delicious. Keeping it that way can be harder than you might expect, however.
Wedding cakes are often made several days before they’re cut and involve a wide variety of delicate and unstable ingredients. Some do well in the refrigerator until the big day, but others should never experience cold temperatures.
You can figure out how to keep your wedding cake fresh before and after the wedding by examining its ingredients.
Most kinds of cake do well outside the refrigerator, but some frostings and fillings fare better with chillier conditions. For instance, delicate and fluffy white cakes contain relatively little fat and dry out easily in the fridge, but denser and fattier yellow or chocolate cakes can withstand the cold. Old fashioned fruitcakes are traditional for some weddings. They are extremely durable and stay fresh in or out of the refrigerator, as long as you keep them moist.
The biggest reason to refrigerate a wedding cake is to preserve the frosting. Many fat-based frostings spoil, crust or melt easily when you expose them to temperatures above 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Always refrigerate cakes topped with whipped cream, cream cheese frosting and American, Swiss or French buttercream since these icings are very heat-sensitive. Italian buttercream, ganache and fondant do not require refrigeration for the first day or so as long as you can keep them cool. Marzipan and royal icing are very stable and make excellent choices for hot weather wedding cakes. If your cake includes meringue or seven-minute icing, refrigeration could damage the structure and produce weeping, fallen toppings.
Many modern wedding cakes include delicate fillings that need cold temperatures to stay fresh. Many chefs recommend refrigerating any cake filled with fresh fruit or whipped cream. The refrigerator makes a good place to store wedding cakes filled with lemon curd, custard, pudding or cream-based ganache. In general, if you wouldn’t store the filling at room temperature, refrigerate your cake.
Many couples reserve part of their wedding cake for the first anniversary. If you want to keep your cake for later consumption, it’s best to store it in the freezer, not the refrigerator. Remove all the large decorations and ornaments, along with any unwrapped cardboard cake supports.
Place the whole piece of cake in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes to let the icing become firm. Please remove it from the freezer and wrap it carefully with plastic wrap to avoid gaps. Cover the plastic with two or more layers of heavy aluminium foil, then place it in a box or other storage container.
The fewer options you allow for air to reach the cake, the fresher it will remain. Defrost the frozen cake one day before the anniversary, removing the wrapping only about two hours before you eat it.
