If you ask me what one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is, I must confess that cake ranks very highly on my list. How could it not? Not only does your wedding cake compliment your theme and décor, it brings it to life; your wedding cake doesn’t just look pretty, it is a work of art; and…let’s not forget, it also tastes delicious. What’s NOT to love?!
Have you always had a picture of your dream wedding cake in your head? Or not a clue where to start? Either way, as your wedding planner I am here to make sure that together, with our incredible cake supplier, we create a cake that will take your breath away, and wow each of your guests.
After all, your cake is not simply a dessert, or a minor detail – it’s a beautiful element of your big day that gets a deserved amount of attention and adoration whilst you and your partner cut the very first slice together, hand in hand, as Mr & Mrs. Traditionally, this symbolises the first activity carried out as a couple.
‘Why are wedding cakes so expensive?’ is a frequent search phrase on the internet. It’s also one that I find easy to answer. Wedding cakes are not ‘expensive’ in so much the connotation that this word can sometimes find itself, meaning over-priced. Wedding cakes are an art – their creators spend hours designing and bringing that design to life, you taste and choose from the finest of flavours so that this work of art will not only look, but will taste, incredible. It’s edible-art. A bespoke service. A dream turned into something people can taste and enjoy. It’s so far beyond a bog-standard piece of cake at a café, which, if you paid for each slice for every wedding guest, would still sound ‘expensive’.

Personally, I’m so happy to see the return of the multi-tiered cakes – they’re simply breath-taking!
Our preferred cake supplier here in Cyprus offer a bespoke design service taking every part of your day into consideration; wedding party attire details (shape of your dress, colours, lace/pearl/crystal details, pleating, silks), flowers and venue decoration and themes, invitation and stationary design and the venue and setting itself. So rest assured, if you don’t have a picture of your dream cake in mind, we WILL create it.
Using only the finest ingredients (shipping many items direct from England, France and further afield!), our supplier never uses artificial flavours or preservatives and can of course provide dairy-free, nut-free and gluten-free cakes. We make sure it’s covered, from quality to style. We seek perfection for you.
So let’s get working on those wedding cake dreams of yours – but be warned, I may just get as excited as you during the process!
