Wedding & Bridal Cake Shops Melbourne, Victoria- COSMO

20+ Unique and Delicious Wedding and Bridal Cake Shops in Melbourne [2022]

A far cry from the traditional white slab, wedding cake design of late has become an adventure in creativity and originality. In 2016 we witnessed a small niche of Sydney’s best cake designers serve up the most creative wedding cakes we have ever seen, helping our couples to represent their personalities and wedding themes. From 10-tier monsters to golden beauties, more and more couples want their cakes to be a feature at the reception, to wow their guests and create a lasting impression.

View our gallery of some of the most gorgeous wedding cakes Melbourne has ever seen! Designed to provide you with ideas and inspiration for your special day. You are certainly not limited to what you see on our site, you can choose between modern wedding cakes, vintage wedding cakes, classic wedding cakes and more! What about flavour? Chocolate wedding cakes are the most popular but we have many flavours such as red velvet, caramel mud, marble mud & more! Bring us your inspiration and incorporate elements of your wedding to design a cake that is unique to you! Up to 4 weeks notice can be required for some cakes.

A wedding cake no longer has to be a big fondant-filled spectacular – there's a trend towards pared-back "naked" cakes, as well as the unconventional: think dessert stations and cheese towers. There are even gluten-free and vegan options that can have a blockbuster effect at the reception. Here are Melbourne dessert-creators that can make something as memorable as your walk down the aisle.

The average wedding cake costs around $350, according to Thumbtack, an online service that matches customers with local professionals. On the lower end, couples spend around $125 and on the higher end, they typically spend upward of $700—often over $1,000! —on their wedding cake


The Best Wedding Cake Flavour Ideas and Combinations
  • Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cake. A decadent chocolate cake brushed with Chambord Liqueur and filled with dark chocolate ganache and a hint of raspberry preserves. 
  • Salted Caramel Cake. 
  • Lemon Summer Berry. 
  • Tuxedo Torte.


In the United Kingdom and Australia, the traditional wedding cake is a rich fruitcake, which is elaborately decorated with icing and may be filled with almond paste. Fruitcake was also the traditional wedding cake in the US until the middle of the 20th century.


As a richer alternative to vanilla, chocolate cake also reigns supreme at weddings. The indulgent dessert is often complemented with buttercream, caramel, or raspberry. In fact, Toce says that chocolate cake with raspberry mousse is easily their most requested delicacy. 


You can probably guess the most popular traditional wedding cake flavours. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting is a classic for a reason. Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream is also incredibly popular though a lot of couples reserve chocolate cake for the groom's cake if they want a chocolate frosting.

    Something About Cake - Wedding Cake Melbourne

    “Cake is happiness! If you know the way of the cake, you know the way of happiness! If you have a cake in front of you, you should not look any further for joy!” – C.JoyBell C

    Welcome to the ‘Something about Cake’ world of designer cakes and artistic creations.

    There are no limits to our imagination and with the finest attention to detail and an open mind, together we can design and create something to suit each and every individual requirement.

    Growing up attached to my Italian Grandmother’s and Mother’s hips in the kitchen, I developed a love for baking and creating very early on. This spark developed over the years and after completing a Certificate III in Pastry and Baking, and being rewarded with a highest achievement award and DUX of my graduating year, I knew I was destined to put my skill and passion to great use. From here ‘Something about Cake’ was born and we are growing each day, I would love for you to be a part of our journey.

    I have a great love and passion for what I do and nothing brings me more pleasure than creating masterpieces that make my customers dreams come true. My favourite moments are the ones where I get to witness the look on my clients’ faces when they see their creation.

    With over 8 years’ experience in the industry, certified food handling knowledge, access to constant growth in trends, my passion to create and bake continues to grow stronger.



    “I figured if I was going to make the world a better place, I’d do it with cake” – Ana Pascal

    At ‘Something about Cake’ you’re not simply ordering a cake, you are gaining an experience.

    Beginning with a complimentary Consultation with myself, I will help you navigate your way towards your ultimate vision.

    With each customer, I use the information you give me combined with my instincts and flair to design a cake specifically tailored to your requirements. We all have different opinions and I am a great believer in listening and tuning in to each of my customers’ visions, and then designing accordingly.

    I encourage you to bring any materials, invitations, swabs of colour, pictures and ideas to the consultation as this often sparks my inspiration and provides me with a platform to build upon.

    When ordering a cake from us you can be assured it will be specifically designed and created just for you.

    At ‘Something about Cake’, we have you covered for any occasion, any theme and any style. I can produce inspiring, memorable cakes for Weddings, Engagements, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Confirmations, Communions, Christenings, Name Days, Baby Showers, Kitchen Teas, Hens Party’s, Bucks Party’s and any other Special Occasions you wish to celebrate. No occasion should be without Cake and I would be honoured to help mark the memorable moments in your lives with one of our delicious, striking and original creations.

    wedding cake melbourne

    About us

    With over 30 years of experience, Maria has created bespoke handcrafted wedding cakes, with attention to detail, technique and skilled application. Each design is customised to reflect the individual personality of the bride & groom and their event style.

    Maria personally creates beautiful and unique hand-made sugar and wafer paper flowers which are colour matched to the colours and style of your event. 

    All cakes are produced from the finest of ingredients. Maria offers a variety of delicious flavours and fillings to impress you and your guests that will tantalise your taste-buds.

    { handmade sugar and wafer paper flowers }


    As a little girl I was always at my mother’s side in the kitchen. She loved to cook and bake, and create beautiful dishes and sweets for family and friends. My brother and I loved watching her, waiting for a small piece of dough from which we could create our own biscuit designs, cupcakes or pizzas.

    Cake decorating for me began with a basic class on creating a flower and four books on the subject! I had finished school and was working in an office, but creating and crafting was my true love and as I made cakes for the special occasions of family and friends, my passion for cake decorating grew.

    There were orders for birthdays, engagements, 21st and finally, the honour of creating a wedding cake. An earlier floristry course also gave me the knowledge and skill to create sugar and wafer paper floral arrangements, perfect for special occasion cakes.

    The busy days of young family life took over and it was harder to find time to decorate cakes, however, I relished the opportunity to create special cakes for my children’s birthdays. The passion was definitely still there and as my children grew and more time was on my side, Sweet Affection Cake Designs was born.

    I enjoy experimenting with new recipes and flavour combinations because I believe my cakes must not only look good but taste delicious. My business is all about creating beautiful cakes from scratch (and other goodies) using recipes that I have tweaked again and re-tweaked along with quality ingredients.

    Putting together a new design or a combination of techniques to create a particular look is what I love most with the most important addition of beautiful blooms.  I love tall tiers, covering them using the Lid & Panel method in either plain fondant, 50/50 with modelling chocolate or 50/50 with marshmallow fondant.  I constantly strive for originality in design and work to achieve my best. I love to work with clients, understanding the trust they place in me to create their special centre piece. I listen to their ideas, colour and style requirements and then design and create an original cake that will not only be a stunning centre-piece for their special occasion but will provide them with wonderful, warm memories for the years to come.

    Crazy Wedding Cakes



    At Cake Me Crazy we take your party to the next level with eye-popping designs and mouth watering flavours, let us help you create the perfect blend of Cake and Art for your special event.

    “Nothin’ Says Lovin’ Like Something From the Oven.”

    When speaking with us about your event, we will take all design aspects you have carefully chosen and create a tailored, customized cake just for you.

    We don’t believe in the standard cookie cutter cakes. Every cake we create has a personality and is individual, sometimes she is BIG and BOLD, sometimes she’s classic and understated, sometimes she’s wild and free and goes semi naked with florals in all the right spots.

    All of our cakes are carefully crafted using premium ingredients and our flavours have been tested time and time again to create that sweet spot, that moreish, delicious flavour that keeps you wanting more. We also cater to most dietary requirements.

    Speak to us about creating a show stopping design for your event.



    I swear my first word was 'Cake', so it's safe to say cake life found me from a young age. I remember my grandmother making our birthday cakes and how special it was every year to have her amazingly light and spongey cakes. Seeing her create happiness and joy from just flour and eggs inspired me to do the same and share it one slice at a time. 

    I've made it my cake mission to continuously fine tune my craft and deliver exceptional, mouth watering cakes and desserts that have been given so much love and attention that my grandmother would be proud.

    I'm so fortunate to have found my passion and I’m extremely lucky and thankful that I have some of the best clients who have allowed me to be a part of their special moments.

    Creating cakes is food for my soul and being able to create memories for people that last a lifetime truly makes it all worth it.

    I'm excited to see what my future holds in the cake world and until then...

    Keep it Crazy!

    This is a story we hear frequently at Frosted Tiers and it always puts a smile on our faces.  People are amazed to learn that our wedding and engagement cakes taste as good as they look.  It’s because we use the best quality ingredients, are finicky about design and create every one of our individual masterpieces with love and pride.
