Did you know that the origins of the wedding cake dates back to Ancient Rome, where a cake of wheat or barley was broken over the bride’s head to bring good fortune to the couple!
During the 16th century around Europe, the wedding cake was called the “bride’s” pie and it was savoury.
The modern wedding cake as we know it today was actually for the wedding of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany; his wedding cake was the first to actually be completely edible with tiers.

Fast forward to 2020 and there’s an abundance of different types, flavours, look and colours of wedding cakes, to suit the couples fancy.
You don’t have to compromise on “the right” wedding cake, as our Perth bakers get more creative and importantly, know that there are new trends or dietary requirements.
Here are a few of our Wedding Upmarket wedding cake makers who are proving that yes, you can get whatever cake you want for your special day.
Designer & custom cakes
Seen “the right” wedding cake on Pinterest? Seen something in a magazine you’ve fallen in love with? Or have a totally new idea for a cake that really is special to you? These Wedding Upmarket cake makers can make anything happen:
Self taught baker Sarah has loved creating sweet goods since she can remember. This passion has taken her to handcrafting custom made cakes and making sure she takes care of all the small details, from designing, baking, decorating, and delivering.
Gluten-free Wedding Cakes
Gluten-free sweets have never tasted so good these days with new innovation and ingredients, and with many more people adopting or needing this specific dietary requirement, we’re glad to have a wedding cake specialist to offer you gluten-free wedding cakes.
“So good, they’ll never know it’s gluten free” is the promise made by Stacey – who runs Champagne and Gumboots – a gluten free bakery just outside of Perth. As a gluten intolerant and someone who has a passion for feeding people, Stacey’s all about making sure you never miss out on what you want.
We’ve seen cheese towers, cupcakes, doughnuts, meringues and pancakes for wedding cakes, so if you’re looking for something different, our Wedding Upmarket retailers can definitely give you different!
Caramel creme and honey dough are baked and then layered on top of each other over and over and over again, before being finished off with ground walnuts and dusted with honey flavoured crumbs. Up your alley?
Catie from Sweetly Baked has been supplying Perth brides and grooms with custom made cupcakes, cookies and other delicious baked goods – doughnut walls, pretzels, dessert tables – as wedding cakes!
Get the right one!
