Winter is such a gorgeous time to have a wedding. There’s something magical about crisp cold weather, twinkling lights in the dark and smiling happy faces!

If you’re planning to have a festive-themed celebration, you need to think about getting your wedding cake sorted as soon as possible.

Here are our top tips for planning your perfect wedding cake, and how SWIRL can help make your wedding day merry and bright.

How to create the winter wedding cake of your dreams

Think about the flavour of your cake

Here at SWIRL, we have 18 different cake flavours, 21 icing flavours and 25 filling flavours, giving you over 9,450 incredible flavour combinations!

Winter lends itself well to robust, rich cake flavours like chocolate, mocha and red velvet. We also offer a delectable peppermint icing that will transform any cake into a beautiful accompaniment to your winter wonderland!

Remember though it is your wedding and you can have any flavour cake you like! If you are spoilt for choice, our tasting sessions will help you pick your perfect combination.

Think about the style of wedding cake you want

Rustic-style wedding cakes look absolutely stunning as part of your wedding day centrepiece. It’s a perfect opportunity to adorn your delicious cake with pinecones, holly and pine needles. Festive fruits like pears, figs and pomegranates can look striking too.

Red, silver and blue accents look gorgeous adorning a white cake.

Want your cake to look lovely and Christmassy? Snowflakes baubles and velvet ribbons can give your cake a fun element of whimsy!

Think about your wedding favours

Make your wedding one to remember forever with the perfect wedding favour.

Tie your wedding favours in with the theme of your wedding and of course, your wedding cake. Festive-themed macarons are a great choice as are monogrammed sugar cookies personalised for each guest.

If you want to go all out at your winter wedding, why not provide mini versions of your wedding cake

Try our wedding cake taster session

Are you stuck on the type and flavour of cake to have at your wedding? We can help.

We offer a winter wedding cake taster session that will not only help you decide what cake you want, but you and your partner will get to enjoy some delicious sweet treats too!

All you need to do is choose three flavours of cake, filling and icing. We provide all the elements separately so you can sample them all together and see which flavour combination you both love the best.

Everything is freshly baked and made especially for your tasting, and a member of our team will be on hand to offer advice and recommendations for your special day.

We offer this fantastic service for $50 a couple.

Not able to make it to us? Not a problem! We offer a virtual cake testing where we will ship your cake samples directly to your door and consult with you over an online meeting. This option is perfect for if you are shielding from COVID or are based outside of Calgary.
