Inspired by the diverse flavours available at a patisserie, a variety of fillings were developed to complement different cake bases, allowing near-endless combinations for a one-of-a-kind wedding cake. Cake bases are chosen based on their ability to work with multiple tiers and withstand several hours on display during receptions.
Rich Yellow Butter Cake
Using all egg yolks as opposed to whole eggs gives this cake its signature deep yellow colour. It has a delicate richness and fine texture, yet is sturdy enough to accommodate multiple tiers. This cake is also great for left overs the next day!
Classic Butter Cake
Warm milk and butter are the key ingredients for this Sweet Milton favourite, a moist white cake with a tender crumb.
A dash of milk gives this light sponge cake a softer texture. Not as moist as the Classic Butter Cake, but pairs well with syrup to moisten the layers.
Using egg whites as opposed to whole eggs gives this cake its delicate texture and pale colour. It pairs well with lighter fillings such as curds and compotes or a simple vanilla bean buttercream.
Using both melted chocolate and cocoa powder, this rich bittersweet cake pairs well with caramel and buttercream fillings.
Adding coffee to the chocolate cake intensifies the rich chocolate flavour with an ever-so-subtle coffee flavor. Pairs well with ganache and espresso buttercream
Flavours: Vanilla Bean, Raspberry, Coconut, Rose Water, Coffee, Pistachio, Hazelnut, and Chocolate
Curds add a wonderfully tangy addition to a cake. A rich, creamy filling that works well with lighter cake bases such as the Vanilla White Cake, Warm Milk Cake and Classic Butter Cake.
Flavours: Lemon, Passionfruit, Lime, and Mandarin (seasonal)
Compotes are a lighter, fruitier alternative to curds. Usually made with berries, this filling adds a fabulous pop of color to cakes when sliced. Compotes pair well with buttercream as the fruit flavours help balance the richness of a buttercream.
Flavours: Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Sour Cherry
Ganache and caramels have a rich, decadent flavour. They’re usually paired with one of the Chocolate Cakes or the Rich Yellow Butter Cake.
Flavours: Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Chocolate-Coffee, Chocolate-Hazelnut, Chocolate-Orange, Caramel and Salted Caramel
A custard-based filling that is delicious with a simple dash of vanilla, or in a variety of other flavors. Pastry cream is delicious with all cakes and fillings!
Flavours: Vanilla, Caramel, Peanut Butter, Hazelnut, Pistachio
