Fun Wedding cake flavours
Yeah, me too… And when it comes to weddings, let’s face it. It’s all about the food, right? What could be more exciting than getting to taste a selection of cakes while talking about cake design all at the same time?
The couples I have had the honour of serving over the years always tell me that planning their wedding cake was the highlight of their wedding planning time and that the highlight of that was our wedding cake tasting and design session.
Feast your eyes on the selection of flavours on offer in the menu below and pick your four favourites favourite to try in our session. Just let me know if you’re having trouble deciding!
The Cake Menu
Traditional but delicious Victoria sponge with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam. A crowd pleaser and a safe flavour option for your wedding cake.
Miss Scarlet's Red Velvet
Rich red velvet chocolate sponge with creamy vanilla buttercream. A winner if you love a hint of chocolate and a pretty cake to cut in to.
Doce de leite
Brazilian doce de leite (caramel) sponge with vanilla buttercream and doce de leite drizzle. A great crowd-pleasing alternative to traditional Victoria.
Marbled vanilla and chocolate sponge with a light vanilla buttercream. A pretty cake to wow your guests and the perfect crowd pleaser.
Rich and fudgy chocolate sponge with indulgent dark chocolate buttercream. A surprisingly light chocolate wedding cake option.
Malarkey's Chocolate Orange

Harking back to the tricolore ice cream from your childhood, this striped three flavour cake combo is certainly a talking point. Vanilla, strawberry and chocolate sponges with a light vanilla buttercream.
Lemon & Blueberry
Soft lemon sponge with real blueberries and lemon buttercream- Our most popular wedding cake flavour option.
Sticky Toffee Pudding

Marbled vanilla and raspberry ripple sponge with raspberry ripple buttercream. A pretty cake to wow your guests and a great crowd pleaser.
Sift and spongy carrot cake with walnut pieces filled with a light vanilla buttercream. Pair this with a lighter cake flavour for the perfect wedding cake combo.
I get that there may be guests at your wedding that have dietary requirements, or pehaps one of you has a special request for your cake. While I do specialise in cakes made in the traditional way, many of the above cake flavours I offer can be made as gluten free cakes. If you need guidance on this please ask away. I can recommend some spcific flavours that work particularly well as a gluten free option. I also offer vegan options on request.
If you’re just after a few portions of a specific dietary requirements cake option, then I would recommend a separate cutting cake which can be served to your guests at the same time as the main cake, but kept separately for allergen safety purposes.
The only cake I make with nuts included is the carrot cake which contains walnuts. As a disclaimer for allegen safety, I can offer all my other cake flavours as nut free, but cannot guarantee any of my cakes will be 100% nut or gluten free as I work from a kitchen that uses these ingredients.
If you have any dietary requirements for your wedding cake, or if you have any specific questions about allergens, just let me know when you get in touch.
Tasting & Design
Surely one of the best parts of planning your wedding…
This is not only a chance for you to try a selection of my signature wedding cake flavours… The session is also an opportunity for us to talk about your wedding day plans, and how your wedding cake will fit into them. We’ll discuss the inspiration behind your wedding cake in more detail and create some initial ideas together.
All my wedding cake tasting sessions take place online with your taster box mailed to you in the post. Alternatively, if you’d like to meet up face to face we can also arrange to meet at a Central London Location or to hold your session at your wedding venue subject to permissions.
A small investment of £75 covers a tasting box of four flavours, our meeting time of up to two hours as well as your initial cake design sketch.

Fantastic to work with
Katie was fantastic to work with for our wedding. Her talent and professionalism is second to none. We always knew we didn’t want an ordinary wedding cake and came across Malarkey cakes on Instagram. From the moment we saw her designs we knew this was who we wanted to work with.
We booked in a cake tasting and the flavours didn’t disappoint. We sat with Katie to share ideas, colours and our preferences. She provided a few sketches which really brought together our thoughts from the consultation.
On the wedding day- the cake was one of the talking points, our guest loved the flavours and we were extremely pleased. Katie was very organised and contacted us prior to the wedding to finalise details for delivery and it all went smoothly.
We wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to recommend Malarkey cakes! Ordinary wedding cakes are so 1999- if you want a cake that is a showstopper, unique and tasty -Malarkey Cakes is the way to go!

Out of this world!
Thank you so much for the cake, it was all we wanted and more!!!
Everyone was raving about it so you made a great impression. The flavours were so out of this world and couldn’t be happier about how it worked out.
What I’m ever more appreciative of is the service I got from you and how you were listened and captured my vision… it was so great to work with you and hope to work again with you in the future.

A true artist
Malarkey Cakes was the right choice. We could not be more elated with our wedding cake. It was absolutely beautiful and it met our Winter-Spring wedding theme. It was done with the beat choice of colours and foliage as Katie is truly an expert at it and a true artist. She is not only talented, but also a wonderful person to speak and design with. Truly her work is unmatched, but what more so is the taste and flavours of her cakes. We cannot recommend enough!
