so for example on a 4 tier cake, you can pick 2 flavours within the price
if you want all 4 cakes to be different flavours

How our cake tasting is done


At Asian wedding cakes when we do cake tasting, we give you 5 -6 Medium portions of cake, The cake samples we give you to taste will be equivilant to what will be inside a wedding cake, So cake with icing, Marzipan and fillings, You will be presented with a dish of cakes slices,


We are aware many places do FREE cake tasting, but most of the times its just a small square peice of sponge, its not the cake with fillings and icing as it will be on the day of the wedding, our apporach is very different, its NOT 2 small square pecies of cake on cocktail sticks or a small cupcake

its a dish full of cake, there is a big difference. The cost of a small square peice of sponge or a cupcake is very little, , Our samples are made as WEDDING CAKE. This involves a higher cost, but is a better reflection of what the wedding cake will taste like and what your guests will eat on the day,

Also if the cake is booked with us the cake tasting fee of 20 is refunded

Please note, we do not send samples in the post or pack samples to take away

F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F13, F14, F15, F16, F17, F18, F19, F20, F21, F22

Most popular in eggless is F13 & F14

You can choose any sponge to fill the wedding cake. All of the tiers can have the same sponge or they can all be different. Its up to you on which sponges are on each tier, all tiers can have different sponges.The price is the same on all the fillings but if you choose to have Traditional Fruit cake (F12) in all the tiers then there will be a extra charge.

Cake Servings


The Table below shows the servings for all the different sizes of wedding cakes. The number of servings obtained from a wedding cake depends on the size of serving you are looking to serve. We have split the servings into three types, a small serving, medium serving and a large serving. A Large serving is equivalent to a dessert serving and a small serving is equivalent to a small cake bar.

The pictures below give an illustration of the sizes of servings.

Small serving
1inch x 1inch by 4inch deep
Medium serving
1inch x 2inch by 4inch deep
Large serving
2inch x 2inch by 4inch deep

The above servings are based on a square cake and for round cakes the servings are 15% less. If you have other Desserts within your food menu this will also impact the size of cake required. We recommend if you have 2 other desserts then you should use small servings as a guideline. If you have one other desert then you use Medium servings as a guideline. If you have no other desert then we recommend you follow large servings as a guideline.


The amount of servings required also depends on when and where the cake is served. If the cake is served with desert at the end of the main course then a bigger cake is required as the cake will need to be enough to be served on tables and more guests will have cake. If the cake is served at the beginning then also a bigger cake is required.

If the cake is served at the end of the main course as a buffet then you do not require a cake equal to the number of guests as not everyone will have cake, equally if the cake is served at the end with tea and coffee you do not require a big wedding cake.

In Asian weddings you will need to bear in mind that there is a lot of food and deserts as it is, not all guests will have cake, so therefore the number of servings does not need to be equivalent to the number of guests. In English weddings cake is the main desert and therefore if the desert is to be followed after the main meal you will need to follow the large desert serving as a guideline. Other factors to bear in mind is that if you have a fruit cake it will give you more servings then stated above, as the size of portion does not need to be as big. Below are some guide lines on what we recommend.
