Over 35 years at the Brighton Savoy Hotel, many wedding cakes have come through our doors from professional to those homemade with love – they maybe not quite the skill but they were made with love. With this post I have decided to compile the top wedding cake suppliers in Melbourne in 2023 to give you a taste of what is out there to help you on your special day.
Please note this is based on my own opinion of over 35 years of viewing, cutting, slicing and serving many wedding cakes and is in no way in any particular order.
After popping the question. Looking for the right wedding reception venue, and a ceremony location would be high on the list, alongside the perfect wedding dress and cake to match. Selecting the perfect wedding cake may be a little daunting but we are here to help you decide the perfect cake for your very special day. A wedding cake can reflect your personality; whether is traditional or modern, 2 tiers or 5 tiers, Chocolate or vanilla, cupcakes or a spectacular croquembouche, the list goes on…
How to pick a wedding cake
Choosing a wedding cake is an exciting part of wedding planning. It’s not just about a dessert; it’s a centerpiece that reflects the couple’s taste, style, and sometimes even their love story. Here are steps and tips to help you pick the perfect wedding cake:
- Budget: Before starting, decide on a budget for your cake. This will help narrow down your options and keep your expectations realistic.
- Research: Look for cake designers on this list or bakeries in your area. Read reviews, browse their portfolios, and see whose work aligns with your vision.
- Taste is paramount: Schedule tasting appointments. It’s essential that the cake tastes as good as it looks. Sample different flavors, fillings, and frostings.
- Determine size: The size of your cake will depend on the number of guests you’re expecting. Your baker can advise on the number of tiers and the size of each tier based on your guest count.
- Consider the theme and style:
- Traditional vs. modern: While some couples prefer classic white cakes, others opt for contemporary designs.
- Color: The cake can incorporate wedding colors or stay neutral.
- Details: Think about personalized elements like monograms, lace patterns from the bridal dress, or motifs from the wedding stationery.
- Select a cake topper: This can be traditional (like bride and groom figurines), floral, or something personal to your relationship.
- Understand the venue and weather: If you’re having an outdoor wedding in a hot month, you’ll want to avoid buttercream frosting which can melt.
- Choose the type of frosting: Popular options include buttercream, fondant, whipped cream, and ganache. Each has its pros and cons in terms of taste, texture, and aesthetics.
- Check dietary restrictions: Consider having a separate small cake or dessert option for guests with dietary restrictions, like gluten-free or vegan options.
- Be aware of delivery logistics: Confirm delivery details with the baker, ensuring they have the proper time, address, and contact for the venue. There might be a delivery fee, so include this in your budget.
- Keep an open mind: While you might have an idea or vision, be open to suggestions from the cake designer. They have a lot of experience and might introduce you to designs or flavors you hadn’t considered.
- Cost-saving tips:
- Consider a smaller display cake combined with a larger sheet cake to serve guests.
- Simpler designs can be more cost-effective.
- Fresh flowers on a cake can sometimes be less expensive than intricate sugar flowers.
- Preserving tradition: Some couples choose to preserve the top tier of their cake to eat on their first anniversary. If you want to do this, ask your baker for tips on freezing and storing.
Remember that the cake is an expression of your personalities and tastes. Choose something that you love, both in design and flavor.

Sweets for Tilly is a family run business by Jacqueline and her two daughters, Nancy and Rachel, based in the Mornington Peninsula & Melbourne who have baked for many years, creating beautiful hand made treats.
Starting a baking business has been a life long dream for the three ladies, and as a family with the gift of baking and flare for and creativity, Sweets for Tilly was born.
The name of the business was inspired in honour of their late Grandma, Mathilde, which is the French version of the name Matilda, which can also be known as Tilly. Many may know that the art of baking macarons can be very tricky to say the least. The three ladies began their obsession for perfecting the art of macarons several years ago.

The Icing Cake Artist
So you want to get to know me better eh? Well to start, I am obsessed with everything crafty and creative. Always have been! Growing up even though I loved art, I sucked at it. My mom can back me up there. Along side artsy stuff I also LOVED baking. Jump forward a decade, I combined my passion of art and icing. Boom “The Icing Artist” was born. You may have thought that the name comes from being a baking bad ass, but you would be wrong. I’m an Icing Artist because icing is the only art I don’t suck at!
But let’s back up a tic. Before I went into the cake world, I was a cabinet maker. Not knowing what to do because I was 14 and didn’t have my whole life mapped out….. I chose woodworking. It was hands on, creative, and I got to play with big power tools. What’s not to love? Well, a lot apparently. I liked it, but it was boring and a lot of the same crap over and over. The best part about being a cabinet making, had nothing to do with cabinet making at all. It had to do with a boy named Kevin. I definitely put a ring on that!
It was Kevin’s idea to start a YouTube channel. My whole goal was to share what I had learned so far in the cake world, and build a career for myself. But having no filming background, it was a bumpy start. I was a one woman show for a long time. Doing all of the lighting, filming, editing and of course cake decorating. All the while not being very good at any of it. But I learned a lot, and quickly realized I loved creating videos even more than the cakes.
Six years later and too many bumps in the road to count, I have the best job in the world. Where my hubby and I work full time together with our team, travel the world, meet incredible people and create videos for you peeps! XO

Liam’s Secret Wedding Cake Confession
Every Saturday, without fail, the elegant ballroom of the Belleview Hotel transformed into a fairy-tale setting. Crystal chandeliers sparkled overhead, cascades of flowers adorned the tables, and the soft strains of a string quartet could be heard in the distance. But for young Liam, who lived in the hotel due to his parents’ managerial roles, the most magical element of these weddings was not the decor or the music, but the grand wedding cakes that arrived each week.
Liam had developed a sweet ritual. As soon as he’d see the bakers arriving with the wedding cakes, he’d sneak down to the kitchen, finding the perfect hiding spot behind the tall shelves stacked with shimmering glassware and silver. From there, he’d wait for the precise moment when the chefs got distracted, usually when they were discussing the final touches or handling some urgent matter.
With the stealth of a little ninja, Liam would approach the towering cakes. His eyes would widen at the delicate sugar flowers, the intricate lace patterns, and the shimmering edible pearls. The cakes were artworks in their own right, but what fascinated Liam the most was the royal icing.
Soft, smooth, and gleaming, the icing seemed to beckon him. And every time, without fail, Liam would run a finger through it, collecting a small dollop to taste. It was the perfect blend of sweet and creamy, a flavor that reminded him of happy times and joyous celebrations.
One particular Saturday, Liam found himself gazing at the most magnificent cake he’d ever seen. It was a five-tier wonder, adorned with tiny silver balls and swirling patterns of icing. Entranced, Liam reached out and ran his finger through the back of the cake, where he thought no one would notice.
But this time, he wasn’t alone.
A chuckle echoed behind him, and Liam turned to find Chef Marco, the hotel’s head pastry chef, watching him with an amused smile.
“Caught red-handed, young man,” he said, winking.
Liam blushed, expecting a reprimand. But instead, Chef Marco bent down and whispered, “You know, if you really love icing that much, I could teach you how to make it.”
And thus began the sweetest lessons of Liam’s life. Every Saturday morning, before the chaos of the wedding preparations started, Liam would don a little white apron and join Chef Marco in the kitchen. They’d mix, whisk, and pipe, with Liam learning the secrets of the perfect royal icing.
Years later, Liam became the renowned pastry chef of the Belleview Hotel, taking over from Chef Marco. And on every wedding cake he crafted, there was always a discreet spot on the back where the icing was just a touch thicker, a silent nod to the mischievous little boy he once was.
