Simply Divine Occasions 

Of all the decisions that need to be made when planning a wedding, few are as fun or as tasty as selecting a wedding cake. With today’s wedding cakes no longer limited to traditional fruit cake layers, a multitude of options — ranging from dense chocolate to light-as-air lemon and fluffy red velvet — have been introduced by wedding cake bakers, so there’s essential taste-testing to be undertaken.

What’s more, with wedding cake designers continually escalating the artistry and skill of their edible creations, there are almost infinite opportunities for theming and personalisation.

What to consider when choosing a wedding cake

From the number of tiers to the choice of flavour, there are multiple decisions to be made when it comes to choosing a cake for your wedding day. So, before you get swept away sampling sweet treats, here are some key points to take into consideration.


Gone are the days of traditional wedding cakes solely made of fruit cake. Now, whether you’re a chocolate connoisseur or partial to a slice of carrot cake, you’ll find a wedding cake flavour to please your palette. Some cake designers will even incorporate a different flavour in each cake tier, so talk to your vendor about the choices they offer. And keep reading to discover some of the most popular wedding cake flavours.

Guest numbers

 Whether it’s a gathering of many or an intimate occasion, the number of guests invited to your wedding should be factored in to the size of your cake. You’ll want to have enough to offer to everyone, but ideally not so much that any goes to waste.

Dietary considerations

With the prevalence of allergies and dietary preferences, to ensure no one goes without cake it pays to check if your guests have any specific requirements, and to confirm with vendors whether these can be catered for. Many cake specialists now offer gluten-free or vegan options as standard, and very particular needs may also be able to be accommodated with separate mini-cakes or cupcakes.

Style and theme

With wedding cake designs seemingly limited only by imagination, a wedding’s style and theme can quite easily be incorporated by most professional wedding cake artisians. From fresh florals coordinated with wedding bouquets, to laser-cut cake toppers, buttercream icing patterns and fondant flowers and figurines there are all manner of options on offer when it comes to tying cake decoration into your overall wedding vision.

Storage and placement

Not all wedding cakes will need to be refrigerated, but fresh cream left in the sun may end in tears, so chat to your cake maker and venue about keeping your wedding cake fresh and looking its best. And if you wish to preserve the top layer of your wedding cake to be used at another special occasion — such as a first anniversary or a child’s birthday — communicate this preference to your cake maker, so that they can advise on the best ingredients and preservation techniques.


Most wedding cake professionals include delivery, or can recommend providers to assist, but it’s worth establishing this from the outset.

How to choose a wedding cake designer

You can scour search engines or enquire with your local baker but, as is the case with many wedding planning decisions, recommendations can often prove the best way to find a suitable vendor. So ask friends and family, or search the ABIA directory for recommendations. And if you’re getting married in Queensland, keep reading, as below you’ll find a list of the best wedding cake designers in the state, according to newly-weds who used them for their own recent weddings.

How was this list of Queensland's top cake designers determined?

At ABIA Weddings, it is important to us that all wedding couples plan their special day with confidence, based on the recommendations of recently-married couples and their own real experiences. So, this list is solely based on the feedback of real customers who voted for their wedding cake designer in the prestigious Queensland ABIA Wedding Awards. Of particular note, this list is not a compilation of businesses with the most Instagram followers, or those who paid to get their name on a list.

Since 1996, ABIA have asked real brides and grooms to rate their wedding vendors out of 100% for:

  • Quality of Product and Experience
  • Quality of Service and Communication
  • Value for Money
  • Attitude of Staff and Friendliness


The Queensland wedding cake designers below are those that attained a combined rating of more than 95% in these categories, in order of achievement, and were announced as winners at the recent Queensland ABIA Wedding Awards.
