Cakes for Weddings

Our Silwood trained cordon bleu chef, Irma Brümmer, has years of experience in baking and sugar art and has been featured twice on the magazine program Pasella as well as the Pasella cookbook for her decorating abilities. Over the years Irma has had exposure in wedding magazines Fairlady Bridal edition and Sarie as well as the Home magazine for her wedding cakes.

Wedding cakes are quoted for individually according to the style and size.

Besides the chocolate, other possible flavours are: red velvet, carrot cake, hummingbird cake, orange sponge, lemon sponge, vanilla sponge and fruit cake.

Many wedding couples seem to steer away from using the traditional fruit cake at the reception, but still want a fruit cake for their first anniversary or first christening. In these cases we either do a fruit top tier for the wedding cake or do a separate fruit cake, boxed to be taken with them after the wedding.

When using it as a dessert at your wedding, we suggest serving cream or ice cream and berries as accompaniments or serving cheese platters and fruit. Enquiries

Celebration, Tea and CupCakes

Special occasions need a celebration cake. These are decorated for your specific needs i.e. christening or special birthdays, and are quoted for individually. Please order one week in advance.

Our standard tea cakes serve 12-16 and must please be ordered 2 days in advance. For parties they are larger and serve up to approximately 35 guests. If you want it for a special occasion a message can be done. Enquiries
