Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide


A slice of tradition served your way


WHOdoesn’t love to tuck into a nice slice of wedding cake after a wedding dinner?

While you can never go wrong with a traditiona­l white vanilla tiered wedding cake, other classic flavours such as chocolate have made a comeback in recent years, as has buttercrea­m icing.

Trends have shown people like to decorate cakes with cute, cartoon-like toppers (the figurines that sit atop of the cake made to look like the bride and groom).

For those who want a more elegant look with their cake, metallic wedding cakes are the latest trend. Made with a basic wedding cake base, the cake is decorated in edible glitter.

For a more rustic, vintage look, a naked cake could be the way to go. A naked cake is a cake that has been reconstruc­ted so everybody can see what’s inside.

For those wanting to do a wedding cake on a tighter budget, there are other options.

A cupcake tower could be a great way to provide guests with a sweet treat but at half the cost.

Red velvet cupcakes or even basic chocolate or vanilla cupcakes always go down well.

You could even provide each guest with an extra cupcake to take home as a wedding favour.

For those who don’t like cake, a sweets bar could be a good option.

Set up a table with as many different kinds of lollies, chocolate and ice cream that you love and you have the perfect sweet buffet for guests to enjoy. The dessert bar can be themed to your preference.
