When it comes to cake any excuse will do.

By Gracie Clough | 28th March 2019

If we’re being totally honest, there are few things worse than having to bake a cake for a special occasion. Unless you are some kind of Heston Blumenthal in the kitchen, attempting to make a cake (the real centrepiece of any special event) is equal parts frustrating and anxiety-sweat inducing. It’s for this reason (and the fact that there’s a new hen’s party/birthday/baby shower every single weekend) that we have some of Brisbane’s best cake providers on speed dial. Whether you need a cake in the shape of a bunny, a coffee flavoured cake for an office birthday everyone forgot, or just realised last minute that the bride-to-be is actually gluten, lactose and egg intolerant, these creatives can help you make sure your bash is one for the books.

Petal + Peach

Are you on the hunt for the most elegant, whimsical and beautiful cakes that will leave a lasting impression on your guests? Since 2015, the professionals at Petal + Peach have demonstrated they are at the pinnacle of the celebration cake industry. The team of perfectionists create the most gloriously colourful and decadent cakes that not only look magnificent, but also taste divine thanks to quality ingredients. Each cake is one of a kind and is meticulously designed especially for you and your celebration, and with extensive flavour offerings like melted chocolate with hazelnut, French vanilla and honey drizzle and burnt caramel and espresso, we’re sure these cakes will leave your mouth watering! These beautiful cakes are decorations in themselves and are a sure fire way to level up any celebration no matter how extravagant or intimate – just be sure you book your cake well and truly in advance to avoid disappointment. Working with high-profile clients like Westfield, ghd Hair, Mimco and Channel 9, Petal + Peach prove they are at the pinnacle of the industry by setting the modern cake design trends.

 

Lady Bouchon

With simple rustic designs presented in an impressively eloquent way, it’s easy to see that Lady Bouchon cakes are influenced by founder, Catherine Marot’s, days of indulging at French patisseries. Inventive cake flavours like lemonade and elderflower, banana maple cake and toasted coconut are all made with plenty of love and fresh locally sourced ingredients, making the perfect finishing touch to your special celebration or wedding. So that no one has to turn down a slice, Lady Bouchan can even cater to any gluten-free and vegan requirements you or your guests may have – because, let’s be real who wants to say no to hazelnut date cake topped with salted caramel? If you don’t find yourself in the Brisbane area, Lady Bouchon can deliver their soulful cakes as far as Byron Bay.

Deliberately Delicious

These Brisbane-based cake designers have been in the cake making game for over 15 years now. Family owned and operated, their personalised service and attention to detail make them a stand-out in the industry. Without a set style, they are able to create bespoke cakes using premium ingredients, catering to client needs. Drawing inspiration from art, fashion and architecture, their boutique showroom on Caxton Street shows off their passion, creating deliberately delicious cakes for any event. From weddings and birthdays to engagements and celebrations, they’ll take on the most delicious of cake challenges. 5-tiered semi-naked wedding cake? No problem! Our personal favourite is their KFC cake, replicating our favourite salty, chicken delights.

 

Wild Canary

Floral masterpieces is perhaps the best way to describe the tiered creations that come out of Wild Canary. These suburban food experts are famous for their cakes, specialling in edible florals picked from their organic kitchen garden. Baked freshly in-house using the highest quality ingredients, you can choose from a range of set flavours and fillings or choose to hold complete agency and create a custom designed cake! “If you can dream it we can make it”. Because that’s how choosing cakes should be! From your classic red velvet and chocolate options to more seasonal picks filled with fruits, these cakes taste just as good as they look. Need a nibble before committing? Head to the Wild Canary and indulge in a delicious slice, served daily with fresh cream. Tucked away, engulfed by the trees of the neighbouring nursery, your visit will be far from underwhelming.

Tome

Is a cake really a cake if it isn’t covered in macrons and meringues? We believe in the power of soft interiors and hard exteriors, especially when they make up the stunning edible decorations scattering your layered delight. Whether you’re turning 6 or 60, Tome caters for any and every theme while maintaining their iconic unfinished look. The best part? These artists know how to make a masculine twist when requested if you’re not one for pinks and florals. For design inspiration, head to their Instagram and lay your eyes on their iconic fridge filled with dripping caramel. Cake inspo is by far the best inspo filling up our feeds. Located in the beach town of Maroochydore, it’s your perfect excuse for making that beach trip finally happen. It ticks a lot of boxes in our eyes!
