Blog PostWhat’s New In Wedding Cake Flavors

wpengine April 6, 2018

When choosing your wedding cake, there is no doubt that the design and presentation are important elements, but don’t overlook the taste. Not a fan of the traditional yellow or chocolate? Think about one of these unique cake flavors. Don’t serve up the same old same old to your family and friends. Treat them with something new! Read on for unique cake flavors that are sure to add that little something extra to your celebration.  


Refreshing citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges are perfect for the summer, so a citrus cake is a perfect choice for an outdoor summer wedding! While the flavor of the citrus fruit can be used for the frosting, pair it with local, fresh fruit for an added treat.

Pink Champagne

Not only does this cake look beautiful with a bright pink frosting, but it is also made with delicious champagne! Ask your bakery to add champagne to the batter in place of water, creating a one-of-a-kind wedding cake that you and your guests will love.

Spiked Red Velvet

Don’t want an ordinary chocolate or vanilla cake but still want to choose a flavor that all your guests will love? Red Velvet has been popular for a couple of years. Go with this favorite, but take it up a notch by spiking the cake and adding decadent amaretto into the cream cheese frosting. The combination is sure to be a hit with your friends and family!

Earl Grey with Lavender Frosting

If you love Earl Grey tea, this cake flavor is for you! Earl Grey tea is traditionally a black tea flavored with citrus, and the fruit flavor combines beautifully with an earthy, floral flavor, such as lavender. While the flavor combination makes for a great tasting cake, the color of the lavender frosting ensures that your cake will look stunning as well! Decorate with dried lavender, which can be found locally, for an elegant finish and your wedding cake will be a major highlight of your big day.
