London Fog Cake from Milk and Cookies Bakeshop
This London Fog cake is a tea-drinker’s dream. Made with Earl Grey tea-infused vanilla cake layers, the inside of this dessert is a soothing purple-grey colour layered with vanilla bean ganache and buttercream. The made-to-order masterpiece is finished off with an Earl Grey drip and tufts of vanilla icing that resemble the perfect whipped cream-topped beverage.
Macaron Tower from Contessa’s French Macarons
Contessa’s French Macarons are customizable to the last crumb. These almond flour-based confections come in any shade from the colour wheel, plus metallic golds and silvers. Optional hand-painted detailing can be added for the ultimate personal touch. And if traditional flavours like raspberry or vanilla bean aren’t unique enough for your event, request your own flavour inventions to wow your guests – like Coffee Crisp or dark chocolate chipotle.
German Chocolate Cake from Crave
Crave’s German Chocolate Cake is the ultimate indulgence. This good old-fashioned dessert will be a chocolate-lover’s undoing. Tempt your guests with layers of whipped carmelia milk chocolate ganache between moist chocolate cake all topped with a coconut pecan filling. If you want to trade ruffles for rugged, this is the cake for you.
Lavender Lemon Cake from Brianne Gabrielle Cakes
Brianne Gabrielle Cake’s minimalist style, gold detailing and ornate hand-crafted sugar flowers will have your guests wondering if they should dare cut into this Lavender Lemon masterpiece. But the fresh combination of fluffy lavender cake layered with lemon buttercream filling makes this cake more than just a fashion statement; it’s a flavour statement, too.
