Some brides look through wedding magazines or search online and find cakes they like which they want to duplicate for their own wedding or change up slightly to suit their needs. Other brides want a completely custom cake to reflect elements from their dress, flowers, venue or decor.
Some things to look at in coming up with a design are your invitation, wedding dress, venue decor or your flowers. Is there a pattern from your invitations that could work as a trim or full print on a cake? Does your wedding dress have lace or beading or even some pleating which could work into the cake design? What flowers are you using in your bouquet and centre pieces? Would those look nice as a bouquet on top of the cake or scattered between the tiers? Do you have a monogram that you are using that could work on the front of your cake or as a cake topper?
Are you using a theme throughout your wedding? Some couples go for Art Deco, Nautical, Las Vegas or shabby chic/country.
Some couples even like to incorporate where they got engaged into their cakes.
Here are some photos of custom wedding cakes we’ve done, some having the inspiration photographed with the cake.

From time to time people call us and shyly ask if we do erotic cakes. You can almost feel the embarrassment in their voice through the phone. Believe me, you are not the 1st to ask! We don’t mind being asked and our answer is yes, to a point. We will do erotic cakes like breasts and penises but we like to keep the designs fairly tame and not get too ‘gross’ with them (if you know what I mean!). Although we do these cakes, they are not something that we post photos of to our regular cake galleries as we want our website to be family friendly. If you are looking for this type of cake, please don’t hesitate to call or email us and we can always send you photos. I’m sure your request will not be the most bizarre one we’ve ever gotten!
Some of the things we have done are penis cupcakes for bachelorette parties, penis cakes for birthdays, breast shaped cakes to celebrate a breast augmentation anniversary (yes that was an actual occasion!) and for bachelor parties, bum/thong cakes for birthdays and even a cake with the image of a woman laying down with a nipple piercing and her legs wide open.
My favourite order was some really cute cupcakes for bachelorette party where the cupcakes were topped with little birds, flag banners, wedding rings, top hats and little gift boxes. The surprise was that the lids of the tiny boxes opened to reveal tiny penises! haha, yes a D*** in a box!

In browsing online I came across this great article which answers many questions I get asked by brides on a regular basis. Really, I couldn’t have said it any better. From faux cake tiers and slabs to fresh vs sugar flowers this article touches on so many great points. Make sure to give it a read if you’re in the market for a wedding cake.
