The Cake Eating Co. has a goal of achieving not just a stunningly gorgeous cake that will become a centrepiece on your big day. We also aim to have this cake be a mouth-watering flavour explosion that is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.
To achieve this goal we start by using the best and freshest ingredients we can source both locally and internationally. We bake our cakes on the philosophy that a premium cake requires premium ingredients. Real fresh free range eggs and creamy NZ butter mixed lovingly with Tongan vanilla beans and the finest French and Belgian chocolates.
Cakes are fresh baked and soaked in syrups and alcohols for flavour. We then fill our cakes with a range of handmade curds, buttercreams, compotes and mousses. Each tier of your cake can be a different flavour and the flavour combinations within the tier are limitless.
We pride ourselves on being able to create a unique wedding cake flavour to go with your unique cake but don’t worry, we do the classics exceptionally well. Should you want to stray from the beaten path then we welcome you to try your hand at creating your own wedding cake flavour. We are more than happy to advise on pairings and help you create your cake dream. Should you have a flavour ‘goal’ in mind such as a cake that tastes like a snickers bar we are also at your service for creating this for you.

You can book your cake consultation online here . Our consult times here are for Saturday afternoons and Thursday mornings. If you cannot make these times, or are coming from out of town etc please email us and we can work around your available times. We recommend booking your tasting about 6-12 months from your wedding. Booking too far in advance can mean your whole wedding concept changes, and too close may mean we are booked out. We are currently booked our for tastings weeks in advance. You can either send us an email to check your date is free before booking or we will email you if that date is no longer available once you have made your consult booking- no email means the date is fine.
Our cake tasting samples are well sized so feel assured that no matter how much of your wedding entourage you need to bring (we request no more than 5) you will all get a piece. We do not serve vegan or gluten free samples as a general rule
