Planning your big day can be extremely hectic and having to decide on the perfect wedding cake only adds to the stress. While customising a cake seems like an easy peasy task, there is in fact, a lot more to consider. Factors such as the theme of your wedding and the number of guests you are inviting play a part too. 

In this article, we will be bringing you along on the typical process of customising a wedding cake in Singapore so you get a better idea of what it is like and will hopefully help to make the journey a breeze. 

Step 1: Select the number of tiers and cake size

2 Tier Wedding Anniversary Cake

Traditional wedding cakes usually come with at least two tiers but of course, this is not a hard and fast rule. If you are only holding a small reception dinner, one tier should suffice. And if you want to go all out, most cake shops in Singapore offer cakes in three tiers, or maybe even four!

Apart from the number of tiers, you will also have to decide on the cake size. Here is a guide to serving suggestions for the wedding cakes at Zee & Elle but take note to consult your chosen cake shop for a more accurate recommendation:

Step 2: Choose your preferred cake flavour

Once you have gotten the nitty-gritty details of cake tiers and sizes done and dusted, the next step is where the fun starts - choosing your preferred wedding cake flavour. 

Most cake shops in Singapore, be it brick-and-mortar or online stores, will provide you with a few options to choose from. 

If you find it challenging to decide on one flavour, the good news is that wedding cakes in more than one tier can usually be mixed and matched with a few flavours so you get the best of both worlds. 

Chocolate is a safe choice that will suit both young and old taste buds while other flavours that contain lemon are great for the more mature guests who prefer something less sweet. Fruity flavours are also crowd favourites. 

Here at Zee & Elle, the Vanilla Lemon and Double Chocolate Crunch flavours are our bestsellers that you may wish to consider. 

Step 3: Finalising your cake design

Rustic Wedding Cake

You are almost at the end of your wedding cake customisation process - trust us! This is one of the most important steps and should always be highly regarded. 

One of the easiest ways is to let your chosen cake shop understand your wedding theme and their bakers will be able to advise you on some designs that will complement it. Otherwise, try looking for reference photos online that you can show the bakers or create a simple mood board with a general colour scheme or decoration idea to make the process more efficient. 

For instance, a rustic wedding theme is usually accompanied by a cake decorated with florals and leaves while a minimalist wedding cake can include fruits to add pizzazz.  

There you have it - the steps to customising a wedding or even an anniversary cake. Get in touch with us here at Zee & Elle, an online cake shop in Singapore, to secure a slot for this important occasion soon!
