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

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.
