25 Unique Wedding Cake Flavours

In the last few days, we’ve learnt that the flavour of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding cake will be organic lemon and elderflower. Delicate, summery and non-traditional. If you fancy something different too, here are 25 unique wedding cake flavours for you to consider.


Luxurious and decadent, chocolate is the ultimate cake. If you want something a little more than just chocolate here are some suggestions to shake things up.

  1. Chocolate
  2. Red velvet chocolate cake
  3. White chocolate and raspberry
  4. Chocolate orange
  5. Chocolate mint


Any of these would be great for summer weddings, bright and fruity and work well with cream!

  1. Lemon
  2. Key Lime
  3. Strawberries and cream
  4. Raspberries and cream (mmm, raspberries)
  5. Lime and ginger
  6. Carrot cake


Tea flavourings are becoming increasingly popular in desserts. I would recommend vanilla fillings for the three tea flavours. And one isn’t technically a tea or coffee, but it is my favourite coffee syrup.

  1. Green tea
  2. Chai tea
  3. Earl Grey
  4. Coffee and walnut
  5. Gingerbread


If you’re having a kid-free wedding, then why not consider a boozy cake. Who doesn’t love a bit of alcohol in their cake? And if you are having children, you could maybe have a child-friendly tier then one of these three for everyone else.

  1. Pink Champagne
  2. Baileys
  3. Amaretto


  1. Almond
  2. Pistachio
  3. Coconut
  4. Peanut butter


If your wedding is during a seasonal period, why not swap out the traditional wedding cake for a grand version of the relevant seasonal cake and wow your guests.

  1. Malteser cake
  2. Yule Log

Any one of these would make a fantastic alternative to a traditional wedding cake that will keep your guests reminiscing for years.
