Wedding Cake Design Process

“Our philosophy when it comes to wedding cakes is that the cake blends in rather than sticks out at your wedding.  The Bride & Groom should be the main focus of the day.”

Declan Molloy, Molloy’s Artisan Bakery

Pearl wedding cake


We like to meet with all our Brides & Grooms to be and discuss their upcoming wedding to gain a better understanding of their requirements.  During the complimentary consultation we discuss dress colours, wedding theme, flowers, venue etc before we mutually agree on a wedding cake design.  Samples of wedding cake flavours are also available to order for you to taste in the comfort of your own home.

How much cake?

We have found that our three tier square cake will serve at least 220-250 people. If you are unsure we offer an additional cake that is the same flavour as your wedding cake as back up.

Design of Cake

As the design of your cake is very personal to you we suggest you bring to your consultation a number of things to give us a good idea of your style such as a picture of your dress, colour of bridesmaid dresses, flowers you expect to use, location of reception and any images of cakes you have already seen and liked.

Cake Decor

If you are using fresh flowers we suggest you speak to your florist about recommendations.  What you might love as a decoration may not last on a cake for several hours.  You also need to take into account the time of year and whether or not the flowers are available.

Cake Flavour

We offer a selection of flavours for you to choose from for your cake.  Samples of these are available to pre-order before you make your choice.  Some people like to go for one flavour throughout and others like to mix it up with fruit, chocolate biscuit and perhaps lemon so as to cater for all requirements.


Cake Stands

We offer a selection of Cake Stands on loan.  We also have Bride & Groom cake toppers that can be offered on loan or purchased.  Please note we do require a booking deposit for same.
