Black Velvet Sydney creates beautiful custom cupcakes for Sydney bridal showers. When the ladies (and maybe some lucky men) get together to celebrate the upcoming marriage of one of their closest, everything needs to be on-point, sweet and luxurious. We can theme our award-winning cupcakes with our custom toppers or classic sprinkles of gold, silver and white. We also offer cupcake stands for purchase and/or hire and, of course, cakes are also available.
We invite you to contact us on (02) 9331 8183 or send us a message to further discuss your Bridal Shower requirements.
Is There Usually Cake at a Bridal Shower?
A bridal shower is a pre-wedding celebration held by family and friends to honour the soon-to-be bride. A bridal shower is often done during the day, either at brunch or cocktail hour, so it typically involves a spread of hors d'oeuvres, small pastries, and dessert.
There’s usually cake at a bridal shower, but it’s rarely as elaborate as the actual wedding cake. It can be more simple—or you could go all out on a wacky twist to it! At the end of the party, the cake is sliced up and then served to guests, or it can come with complementing cupcakes for easy serving.
What Are the Best Bridal Shower Cake Designs?
There are no set rules for bridal shower cake designs, so you’re free to be creative with your ideas! Play around with colours and shapes, leaning in on a theme that revolves around your bridal shower party or the bride. If you’re not sure about what you can do or need some inspiration, chat with Black Velvet Cakes, and we’ll whip up something in our kitchen that everyone will swoon over.
What Do You Put on a Bridal Shower Cake?
While you can let the design speak for itself, it’s always fun to leave a short message for the future wife on her bridal shower cake. You can write a short phrase like “From Miss to Mrs.” or “Here Comes the Bride,” or you can add a line that’s personal to the celebrant, like their favourite quote on love or a song lyric. You can also make it fun with a pun like “Marriage is a piece of cake!” or “The start of a sweet life together!”
Tips on Bridal Shower Cakes and Cupcakes
Here are some tips to remember when choosing bridal cakes and cupcakes for a shower:
Make It Personal
Remember that the best shower cakes are customised to the bride, so think about what she loves and put that on her cakes and cupcakes! You can also consider her relationship with her beau and put something special to them on the cake to celebrate their union.
Mix and Match
A cake is always a great centrepiece at any party, but it doesn’t have to be theonlydessert. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your cake with other complementary elements, like fairy cupcakes!
Don’t Forget Flavour
Remember that a cake is meant to be eaten, and a great-tasting one will ensure that you’re ending the party on a sweet note. Find a kitchen known to deliver scrumptious desserts, like Black Velvet Cakes, and make sure to taste-test your options for the shower.
