coral, buttercream wedding cake by Chef Joy Turk

With The Savory Sweet Life you can be sure to have a wedding cake of the highest quality with a variety of fun flavors that can satisfy any palate and you also have options!

You can choose to have a traditional wedding cake, a cupcake tower, or a dessert table with a variety of bite size delectables. Choosing cupcakes or a dessert table is a fun and light way to celebrate your wedding while minimizing cost and waste. Your guests can approach the cupcake tower or dessert table and take as they please. Those cupcakes and/or desserts that are leftover can be put in the refrigerator and enjoyed the day after. If you choose this option you can also have a small topper made to use for the cutting of the cake. Gluten free or Vegan? No, problem. I can design flavors or dessert ideas for you too!!

Fondant cakes are the final touch to show off your personality for your wedding. They can be elegant to fun, sophisticated to silly. I am dedicated to designing a cake that fits your wedding and your imagination.

Please tell me your theme or send me a photo of a cake that you like. However, we highly recommend, when ordering the cake, please take into consideration your wedding location and the factors that may surround it such as, extreme heat and humidity, lack of air conditioning in the dining area and possible rain.

Wedding cakes are truly a work of art and many hours can go into creating these masterpieces.


The following is how the cost of your cake is determined:
-your choice of icing or frosting and how the cake is decorated
-the size and shape of the cake and whether it is layered or tiered
-the number of servings
-onsite assembly if a tiered or layered cake is your cake of choice

buttercream wedding cupcake by Chef Joy Turk


As a bride-to-be you have the choice of rolled fondant icing with royal icing decorations, chocolate ganache and flavored buttercream. Rolled fondant is the most expensive, as a fair bit of labour goes into rolling a perfectly smooth and even canvas for limitless cake decorating options. Rolled fondant is quite delicate and can tear easily during the process if not applied with experienced hands.

Simple buttercream wedding cakes are elegant and light; perfect for the beach wedding.

Most people will tell you that buttercream will melt in these temperatures and that they are not a good choice where humidity and heat are a consideration. However, the buttercream you will have on your cake/cupcakes is a time, temperature and weather tested buttercream that remains beautiful no matter what is going on atmospherically. If you are choosing this option you are choosing one that is most pure, no additives, no artificial colors and local organic product is used at all times.

Cake decorations will vary according to which icing you pick. If you've picked rolled fondant, once it is completely dry, is firm and perfectly smooth, the decorating go as far as your imagination can go. However, if you prefer your cake covered in either buttercream or ganache, then your best choice for decorations are fresh flowers, swirls, decorative patterns and/or creative edible decorations for example candied ginger, toasted coconut, or whole candied nuts.
