Choose The CakeChef for a Truly Spectacular Wedding Cake

Michelle The CakeChef

The wedding cake is an important part of your big day, but where do you find the right baking specialist to create the cake of your dreams? If you are a bride-to-be in and around Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens or the Hunter Valley, Michelle at The CakeChef is the person you’re looking for. Michelle is a qualified chef and has a Masters Degree in cake decorating. She will work with you to ensure your wedding cake not only looks fantastic, but tastes amazing too.

Order early

You may know exactly what you want for your wedding cake, or you may still be combing magazines for inspiration. Either way, keep in mind it may take some planning and reviewing to turn your dream cake into a reality, so be sure to have the process underway well in advance of your wedding day. Ideally your cake should be ordered as soon as you have chosen your colour scheme and your venue.

Taste test

The CakeChef offers numerous cake flavours with ganache style fillings that you can mix and match to suit your taste. Imagine a Mars Bar mud cake with caramel flavours and dark chocolate ganache, or coconut mud cake with lemoncello ganache. Make an appointment for a cake tasting and be prepared to want every flavour you try!

Current trends

The CakeChef specialises in the popular double barrel and triple barrel wedding cake trend. Each cake or barrel is six inches high, and comprises four layers of cake and three layers of ganache. Cupcake towers are also still very much in demand as wedding cakes, and Michelle’s version can include a one or two-tier cutting cake.

Get creative

The days where a white tiered wedding cake with a generic plastic bride and groom perched on top as the only choice are gone, so get creative and consider coordinating your cake with your wedding theme, or the colour of your bridesmaid dresses, or the jewellery you’ll be wearing on your special day. Imagine your guests gasping in delight when they see your cake draped with the same pearls or rubies you are wearing, for example. This is especially effective if you’re wearing an heirloom piece of jewellery.

Another current trend is to personalise your cake by matching it to the fabric of your wedding dress. For example, if your dress features an insert or overlay of lace, a fondant replica can be made and incorporated in your cake design to highlight your unique style.

Cutting the cake

History tells us wedding cakes began as cakes of wheat or barley that were broken over the bride’s head to ensure fertility. Thankfully, times have changed and brides no longer have to worry about getting cake in their hair (although some YouTube wedding clips show differently!) and modern wedding cakes symbolise good luck for the newlyweds.

However, it’s interesting to know the cutting of the cake is the first task you perform together as husband and wife, and feeding cake to each other traditionally signifies the commitment you have made to provide for each other.

If you’re looking for a wedding cake specialist who can work with you, provide inspiration, and a really great tasting result, The CakeChef is the place to start.
