Fillings and Icings or Frostings
In general, the 'heavier' the cake, the denser the fillings and
icing can be.
Buttercream - pure butter and Australian cane sugar. Flavours include vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, orange, raspberry, coconut, lemon, lime, butterscotch, caramel, boysenberry, coffee, almond, hazelnut, peppermint, spearmint, chocmint, peanut butter.
Meringue Buttercream - made from cooked egg whites, cane sugar and pure butter, and natural flavourings. A silky smooth, less sweet alternative. Not suitable for outdoor events/warm-hot conditions.
Strawberry, lemon or raspberry spread - can be used in combination with a creamy filling for a tangy element.
Ganache - flavours to suit type of cake. Includes white, dark and milk chocolate, caramel, strawberry, chocmint, jaffa, choc-coconut, choc-hazelnut, raspberry, vanilla pine-lime. Can be poured for a glossy finish, or whipped as a swirly topping or filling!
Ganache buttercream filling - our special filling recipe uses real chocolate, fresh cream, with smooth and chunky add-ins for a flavour and texture hit!
Glacé Icing - a thinner, less buttery but still sweet topping. Suitable for tea cakes, pound cakes and sponges.
Glazing - suitable for some fruit and pound cakes, eg a citrus glaze over your orange/poppyseed cake.

Please ask about our chocolate lollipops and different chocolate moulds we can make to order.
Specials are available to clients ordering bomboniere as part of their wedding package.
A word about consultations....
Generally only wedding cake clients need to book face-to-face consultations (including cake tastings) on premises, although I do offer this service to larger special event cakes also.
Most preliminary discussion, including confirming the availability of dates can be done via email or telephone. Email is very handy for transmitting images of the design styles that you are interested in having incorporated into your cake design.
