When it comes to wedding cakes, the only limitations on taste and design seem to be your own imagination. Gone are the days that a simple vanilla sponge is expected, and it’s far in the past that fruit cake is the norm. Today, we have seen flavor pairings like pink champagne and strawberry, peanut butter and chocolate, and even Matcha green tea.

We recommend that you pick a wedding cake, and a wedding cake baker, that makes you happy. Don’t worry about trying to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, but rather make your cake show off your and your new spouse’s preferences. From the flavors on the inside to the decorations on the outside, wow your guests with your eccentricity and make a delicious statement.

Pastry chef Ben Hardy and Alison Keefer came together to open the Gallery Pastry Shop in Indianapolis. The company specializes in European pastries and decadent plated desserts. Wedding cake decorating trends like hand-painted scenes, marbling, and drip cakes are gorgeously executed with added detailing of macrons, gold leaf, and chocolate bark. The best part is that Gallery Pastry Shop is always up for collaborating on new and exciting flavor combinations, so feel free to ask them anything. Cake tastings can be arranged by appointment, as can cake delivery and set up.
