Sponge cake – lighter and softer, this is generally only used when iced with buttercream as fondant being a heavy medium can make the cake sink.
Butter cake – Somewhere in between a sponge cake and a mud cake, this is perfect for those who don’t like to have their cakes too sweet but want something sculpted or layered to a 3D shape.
Mud cake – Traditionally, mud cake being moist and more dense is the best medium for layering and sculpting. You’ll find that most wedding cakes (2 tiers or more) will use mud cake or fruit cake as this can ensure that the cake holds up the weight during the day.
Popular flavours are:
- Red Velvet
- Tea – Earl Grey or Green tea are popular choices
Other flavours are also available upon request but we find that the above flavours are the easiest to pair with a variety of cake fillings.
Where cakes are layered (typically a 4″ high cake will have 2-3 layers), this can be separated by jam, whipped cream or buttercream. As such cakes are typically sealed by ganache and fondant, the cake can then be left at room temperature.
Popular flavours are:
- Cookies and Cream
- Strawberry, raspberry or blueberry
Other flavours are also available upon request but we find that the above flavours are the easiest to pair with a variety of cakes.
Two main types of icing are used: Fondant and Buttercream.
Buttercream is less sweet and gives it a softer finish while fondant has become the more popular trend in recent years. Fondant covered cakes are the best seals in keeping a cake, allowing covered cakes to be kept in room temperature of no more than 25-30 degrees. Generally, you should keep cakes out of humidity and direct sunlight to ensure that it does not melt/sag.
Buttercream covered cakes on the other hand can easily melt on a warm day if left outside and hence should be kept in the fridge.
