And if you like the idea of your cake perfectly matching your wedding motif, why not go all out and sign up for the store’s sweet table or catering service as well?
BOW Artisan Cakery
BOW Artisan Cakery, opened by two women who met while studying at Le Cordon Bleu Paris, offer its cakes as a sweet treat to you.

We’re still floored by Cake2’s life-size wedding dress cake (complete with a bridal train). Despite the decadence, its cakes are renowned for lightness. While Cake2 is more than willing to make cakes for other occasions such as birthdays or work functions, it’s clear it’s a speciality wedding cake bakery through and through.

This cake shop can have simple wedding cakes done within two weeks and allows you to mix and match the flavours, whether you’re looking for a cupcake stand wedding cake or a six-tiered statue. If you’d rather leave the taste to the pros, you can opt for one of the recommended flavour combinations. But if you ask us, we’d go for the strawberry shortcake flavour (vanilla with a strawberry and cream centre).
Craft Cakes & Confections
Craft Cakes & Confections playfully twists nostalgic classics into new and inspired concepts, creating beautiful tailor-made wedding cakes that strike the perfect balance between being creamy and light, as well as sweet and stunning.

A popular choice among customers is its mini wedding cakes that are placed on a tiered cake stand and, as a bonus, save you time on cutting.
