43 Unique and Mouth-Watering Wedding Cake Flavours

15th September 2022

In our culture, it’s an extremely important tradition to have something ‘meetha’ (something sweet), to celebrate anything good, and what better than your wedding cake. We’ve seen so many extravagant and gorgeous cakes, but it’s also what’s on the inside that counts, and you want to make sure you’ve seen (and tasted) all your choices when it comes to choosing your wedding cake flavours.

For choosing your cake flavour, the options are literally endless, and each cake artist will be sure to provide you with unique and imaginative flavours which you may not have even heard of; and most certainly not tried before. 

One of our favourite trends of recent years, has been mixing and matching. Why only choose one flavour, when you can have two or three flavours, or even one flavour per tier.

The “Traditional” Cakes:

Before overwhelming you with a number of unique flavours, let’s appreciate the original and traditional cakes which were made with fruit sponge, and covered with decorative fondant icing. This is a classic which you guests will most definitely always love.

Other scrumptious classics include:

1) Victoria sponge cake

2) Chocolate cake

3) Carrot cake

4) Red Velvet cake

FAQs with the Experts:

We spoke to some of our trusted wedding cake suppliers, and here’s what they had to say about the upcoming trends and their personal favourites.

What’s the most unusual wedding cake combination you’ve ever made / been asked for?

“I have a few requests for unusual flavours but the 2 that stand out the most are chocolate cake with rosemary infused into the cake with a light lemon curd and poppy seed filling – I must say this was unexpectedly delicious!” Kiran Mandalia, Cake Boulevard

What’s your particular favourite cake flavour of your own?

“I have so many favourites! I narrow is down to 2 – our Chocolate and Salted Caramel simply melts in your mouth.  Love our Ferrero Rocher Mocha – this is a Ferrero Rocher sponge with Nutella and cappuccino frosting.”Kiran Mandalia, Cake Boulevard

Have you noticed any particular cake trends over this wedding season?

This wedding season has definitely seen a few trends one was the correlation of the timeless classic tiered cake in white with a contemporary setting of flowers – where the flowers cascade the height of the cake and table, reflecting that flowers are the showpiece within the setting of the décor and showcased on the finish of the cake.

On the other extreme we were overwhelmed with the number of requests for a contemporary cake using squares, hexagons instead of the classic round cakes with textured finishes and earthy colours on the cake itself.  I do believe this trend will filter into next year but with more subtle hues of blush and ivory’s! – Kiran Mandalia, Cake Boulevard
