This rise in popularity of large-scale weddings has seen the emergence of grand showstopper wedding cakes. Showstopper cakes are highly personalised, and we love working with brides and grooms to create the perfect statement cake for their special day!
Are they made entirely from cake?
Large showstopper cakes are not made entirely from cake. We will create a beautifully decorated display cake for you to showcase at your wedding, containing one tier of real cake that you can cut into for photographs. Additional slab cakes are provided directly to the kitchen to be cut and plated for your guests, ensuring that your display cake remains structurally safe for the remainder your event. Once you have cut your cake for photos, the venue will then remove your cake and slice the remaining tier to be served.
How do you deliver such a large cake?
To ensure the safety of your cake, we will transport it to your venue in segments and completely assemble it on site. The delivery fee includes assembly, and we will liaise directly with your venue to organise delivery and assembly times.
How can a showstopper cake be customised for my event?
We can include a variety of techniques to create your dream showstopper wedding cake! We often use secondary materials, such as your dress details and wedding stationery, as references to work from to create a highly personalised cake. Elements such as edible lace, hand painted monograms and numerals, stencils, embossing, ruffles, ruffle ball toppers and custom piping are all techniques that can be used together to create an amazing showstopper finish.
What events or themes is a Showstopper cake suitable for?
Showstopper cakes are best suited to large weddings and events that are being held in sizeable venues, for example, Crown Melbourne, Manor On High, Lakeside Banquet and Convention Centre, Melbourne Pavilion, Maison Function Centre, Leonda by the Yarra Ballroom, Showtime Events Centre. La Mirage and Cargo Hall.
Is this a classic or a trend?
Given the rise of large-scale weddings, showstopper cakes are a ‘new classic’. Your theme and design will determine whether your cake is modern or classic in style.
