Vanilla Cakes

The vanilla cake is timeless and refined. With a classic flavour and a smooth finish, they make the most beautiful wedding cakes, complementing elegant dresses and romantic bouquets with pure, white style. A vanilla cake is also fabulous for sophisticated birthday celebrations, or to show your mum a bit of appreciation (and get some brownie points in the process) on Mother’s Day.

Vanilla cakes with Mexican roots

With an aromatic, sweet flavour, vanilla is the only edible fruit to come from the orchid plant, originally grown in Mexico – though our beans are harvested by hand in Papua New Guinea these days. It is a flavour often associated with plain ice cream, but vanilla cakes are far from the predictable choice for a celebration. Instead, cut in to one of our vanilla masterpieces and you’ll find almost white cake inside, a wonderful surprise for anyone expecting a simple fruit cake.

These cakes really do exude style, especially when covered with tasteful white buttercream, like our Vanilla Confetti Cake – fluffy vanilla sponge layers are covered with our smooth vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and a smattering of bright sprinkles. Or, for the couples out there, there’s our magnificent Ivory Dreams Wedding Cake. Moist vanilla cake layers are coated with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream, topped by sparkling flecks of gold leaf, as well as gold leaf macarons, white chocolate dripping, delicate meringue drops, piped buttercream details and white chocolate feathers. It’s the cakey embodiment of an elegant wedding!

Adding pizazz

That said, vanilla being the classic flavour that it is, there’s nothing stopping you from going completely mad on the top of one of our vanilla cakes. Just look at our special Mermaid and Flamingo cakes, or our GAGA-Rainbow Cake as examples of just how creative your vanilla cake could be on the outside – it’s the best sponge flavour to add crazy toppings to!
