Top 10 Cake Flavours For Your 2023 Wedding
Wedding Cake Flavours
The Wedding Cake is and will forever be a very special part of any wedding day. Months of dreaming and planning come together to create the perfect design that will bring a “wow” factor to your big day. As a famous proverb, Miguel de Cervantes once said “The proof is in the pudding” and I couldn’t agree more! No matter how beautiful a wedding cake may be, what matters most is how it tastes.
Here is Trisha, from Dirty Peach Cake Boutique‘s, Top 10 Wedding Cake Flavours for 2023.
1. Vanilla and Salted Caramel
Some would say it’s too basic, while others would argue the brilliance of matching together these two loved cake flavours. Oozy homemade caramel sauce sandwiched between moist vanilla cake, with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes to balance out the sweetness. The perfect sweet and salty balance to keep your tastebuds dancing.
2. Chocolate and Coffee
An oldie but a goodie, coffee is known as the “salt” when used with chocolate as it enriches and brings out the flavour of the chocolate. Nothing declares indulgence quite like a rich chocolate cake, soaked in coffee simple
syrup, filled with dark chocolate ganache and a light sprinkle of roasted coffee beans.
3. Lemon and Blueberry
A classic pair that can be done in so many exciting ways: lemon cake with blueberry compote filling and vanilla buttercream, vanilla cake with lemon curd and blueberry buttercream, fresh blueberry cake with lemon
buttercream… The varieties are endless.
4. White Chocolate and Raspberry
Combining the sweet richness of white chocolate with the tart fruitiness of raspberry has been a winning combination for the last few years. Don’t fix it if it’s not broken, this delicious pairing is a refreshing take and will still be part of 2023 favourite flavour list.
This ‘new’ flavour caught everyone by surprise and has been the rave ever since. Layers of vanilla cake filled with Lotus Biscoff flavoured buttercream, lotus biscuits, Biscoff spread and meringue pieces create not only a
texture explosion in your mouth but pack a flavour punch, unlike anything you’ve tried.
Fruit Cakes are a thing of the past and Carrot cakes are happy to stand in as a replacement!! Being much lighter on the palette and tastier if you ask me. These moist cakes have the perfect combination of texture, sweetness and spiciness. Carrot cakes pair best with a decadent cream cheese filling. Watch out fruit cake lovers, carrot cake is here to stay!!
7. Pina Colada
Tell me I am not the only one who starts singing the song when reading the heading. Pina Colada is such a fun, tropical and fresh flavour to choose as your wedding cake. Roasted Coconut cake with pineapple compote
filling and vanilla buttercream creates the perfect mini “party in my mouth” bite.
8. Strawberry and Basil
Strawberry and basil go together like love and… well, marriage. This flavour may sound strange to some people but I encourage you, don’t knock it before you’ve tried it.
9. Tea Infused
Infused cakes are popping up everywhere and are becoming a trend I am very excited about. We have such beautiful homegrown Teas in South- Africa, whether it be Rooibos, Honeybush or Buchu, the flavour combinations are endless and can be something we see a lot more of in 2023.
What says celebration more than a confetti cake am I right? White velvet cake layers laced with rainbow sprinkles are stacked nice and tall to create the perfect celebration slice. Adding a sophisticated touch and “Je ne sais quoi” by pairing it with pink champagne buttercream. The perfect flavour combination for those “business in the front, party in the back”types of couples.
