The 2016 Wedding Cake Challenge

Sugar Treat started in July 2015 and we did our first wedding cake in October 2015.
One of our goals for 2016 is to have at least one wedding cake per month.

Why one wedding cake per month? Because we want to take over the world with our buttercream covered cakes and put an end to the fondant supremacy!

We want to allow more happy couples to have a delicious and elegant homemade cake without having to break the bank. And let’s face it, buttercream taste better than fondant!

Follow us during the year to see our monthly wedding cakes (some months already have more than one booked!)

OUR HOME MADE WEDDING CAKE
In 2012, a friend made our wedding cake because we couldn’t afford one (it’s the amaretto and chocolate one below). All from scratch. It tasted and looked amazing!

If you think you cannot afford a wedding cake, please contact us. We can work out something within your budget. You can order a surprise design cake in the colours to suit your wedding theme. We offer a great price on those surprise design because we want to build a portfolio with different styles.

Our first wedding cake in 2015 was this vanilla swirls with purple ribbon. And guess what was the flavour? Purple velvet!

We also did a friend’s wedding cupcake tower in October 2013, before there was even any plans for Sugar Treat. There was 100 of them! The theme was peacock feather. They are edible prints on rice paper.
