Wedding cakes

The wedding cake is the crowning monument of every special wedding day, and we at Sugarbird Cupcakes would love to be part of that special day by supplying you with a bespoke wedding cake that has been individually designed, baked and handcrafted specifically for your wedding day. We do not have a catalogue of set styles as we believe that every cake should be made to the requirements of each individual couple, so we welcome requests and suggestions and are happy to discuss options with you, from your colour scheme, to flowers, to different flavour options.

Please note: The prices given are based on simply decorated, basic sponge cakes. For fruitcakes and custom designs the price may vary. Please contact us for a quote based on your specific requirements.

Choosing your Wedding Cake

When choosing a wedding cake, there are a number of questions to be considered, when choosing your cake and before finalising your order. Here are some to help you with your final choice:

  • What shape of cake is required? Round, square, heart, cupcakes, etc
  • Do you require sponge or fruit based wedding cake?
  • Do you want mini-cakes or cup cakes?
  • What size of wedding cake(s) do you need considering how many servings are required? Have a look at our servings chart below
  • What colour scheme would you like for your cake, maybe to match your wedding attire/dress or flowers, or that of your bridesmaids?
  • Would you like flowers incorporated into your design, if so, what colour and type ?

Wedding cakes come in all sizes and shapes but one of the most important considerations is to make sure there is enough to go around! The chart below gives you an idea of the number of people that each different size of wedding cake will serve. The chart is based on a cake serving of 2" x 1" for Sponge cakes and 1" square for fruit cakes.
