wedding cakes, we’ve got this!
We can’t wait to work with you to create a memorable wedding cake that will have your guests stealing cake off abandoned tables (I promise, it happens!).
A stunning wedding cake is much more than flour, eggs and butter. The most important thing about your wedding cake is that it actually tastes good. This probably seems really obvious, but after scrolling Instagram, Pinterest and wedding blogs for what feels like forever, sometimes the look of your cake feels like it’s more important than the actual flavour. Don’t be fooled, this is the most important cake you will ever order. You want it to be delicious! You want it to be memorable! It pays to do your research and find a cake decorator who is as passionate about what’s inside the cake, as what it looks like on the outside. Surprisingly, there is a large percentage of cake decorators who use commercial “packet mix“ so ask the question early when doing your research. At Confetti Cake Co. we bake all our cakes from scratch, using the highest quality ingredients that are sourced locally where possible.
cake Tasting & design consultation (8-12 months out)
Every quarter we offer Taster Boxes - usually Jan/April/Jul/Oct. They are $40 and include eight large cake samples (to share, if you must) and two petite sugar cookies. $20 of this cost is redeemable against your cake order over $300 not incl. delivery. Most of the time we can easily design your cake via email however we also offer in-person design consultations by request, please get in contact if you’d like more information.
deposit paid… tick! (6-12 months out)
Once your deposit has been paid we begin sourcing ingredients and supplies for your wedding cake and start work on your toppers/decorations if required, often weeks or months in advance. A single tier cake can take up to 6 hours (yes, really!) and stacked cakes are built carefully over 3–4 days! There is a great deal of thought and preparation that goes into the concept and development of an amazing cake that tastes great and arrives at your venue looking amazing.
When you’re locked in and confirmed, we will send you an info sheet about what’s next, how to request cake flowers from your florist and things to consider when purchasing a cake stand and cake topper.
If you’d like a mock up of your cake design, we’re more than happy to provide after your deposit has been made. Below are some examples of what you can expect. Please note, we do not provide mock ups for basic buttercream/semi naked cakes decorated with flowers or fruit.
your wedding week (the countdown is on!)
We look after the whole shebang and coordinate directly with your venue, planner and florist the week of your wedding so you don’t have to. We will send you an email approx. 1 week before your wedding day to let you know what we have confirmed with all your suppliers, design and flavour check for your cake and any last minute details we need to confirm.
on your wedding day (woohoo!)
On your wedding day, we deliver, set up and prepare any flowers/decorations and style your wedding cake on site. As you can imagine, delivering wedding cakes is nerve wracking and time sensitive and we often bring a second person if we’re handling large cakes or complex floral arrangements.
behind the scenes
We’re fully insured with Red Star and have a Class 2 Food License issued by the Moreton Bay Regional Council (incl. food safety certification and approved kitchen). We love a challenge and take pride in investing in learning new skills, testing and trialing new techniques, recipes and cake flavour combinations. Just let us know if there is anything you’d like to try.

We’ve just recently launched our custom pet face cookies, check out a couple of examples on Instagram.
