From the traditional to the more unusual, anything goes. At YORKCakes, we want you to have just what you want to have on your wedding day.

Stacked or tiered cakes, 3-D creations, cupcakes and macarons can all be made to exacting requirements to create a stunning showpiece for your day.

Macarons and naked cakes have become very popular in recent years and are a wonderful idea for something a little less traditional. Macarons are just beautiful displayed on a macaron tower and paired with a small cutting cake.

You can choose from a variety of flavours and colours that we make and we'll happily advise you how we can coordinate them with your wedding day themes. Whether you know exactly what you'd like for your day or you're struggling for ideas, at YORKCakes you're in safe hands. We can guide you towards inspiration if you need it or simply turn the design you have in mind into the beautiful creation you're hoping for.

Popular cake flavours

Sponge cake has all but taken over from the more traditional fruit cake. We still make a beautifully moist, rich fruit cake if you'd like to include it as part of your cake but it's all about the sponge cake now.

We consider creating most flavours for your wedding cake however, there are some flavours that are 'crowd-pleasers' that we recommend you include to satisfy your guests. There are also some flavours we don't make for various reasons (mostly food hygiene related) but we'll consider all requests!

Sponge cake flavours include:

  • Vanilla cake with smooth raspberry jam and vanilla bean buttercream
  • Lemon cake with lemon curd and a tangy lemon buttercream
  • Chocolate fudge cake with a rich chocolate ganache
  • Caramel cake with a salted caramel filling and caramel buttercream
