Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
Your wedding is a wonderful celebration of love to share with your family and friends that we would be honoured to play a part in.
We know you have a million and one decisions that need to be made in order to make your day perfect. But what about the cake? The cake is a big part of your celebration and is one of those key photo moments. It needs to be perfect – but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
That’s where we come in.
We have a range of beautiful wedding cakes ~ to hire.
Unreal Wedding Cakes was established with one very simple idea in mind: to offer savvy brides and grooms-to-be a beautiful, multi-tiered wedding cake at an affordable price.
The Unreal alternative is a new and exciting concept for the traditional multi-tiered wedding cake. You hire a beautiful cake that can be displayed, cut and photographed just like the real thing, without breaking the budget. Your guests will see a visually stunning cake, but secretly, you know you’ve paid a small price.
Ready and waiting in the kitchen is a fresh, tasty cake to be served at the size appropriate for your number of guests. Choosing an Unreal Wedding Cake means you won’t waste tiers of cake that won’t be eaten.
An Unreal Wedding Cake is an affordably luxurious cake with lots of benefits. Give us a call to learn how the Unreal Wedding Cakes can work for you.
We are very proud to be able to offer you an alternative wedding cake. Our cakes are visually identical to the real thing, cut-enabled and can be customised to your unique wedding style. You can mix and match different tiers, change the ribbon colour, add flowers sugared or fresh, and a cake topper ornament. Our selection is growing on a weekly basis as we create on-trend styles and the requests of brides and grooms-to-be.
Matt is the expert who leads our team with 25 years’ experience as a Pastry Chef, having made many wedding cakes throughout his career. He’s all about creating a lasting, stunning impression that’s affordable to all.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will my guests actually eat? We've thought of that too.
Once the cake-cutting and photos are complete, the cake is taken away. Then a kitchen cake that is pre-cut into beautifully-even portions is served for a fraction of the price. We have a selection of patisseries we work with that will make you the freshest, tastiest wedding cake. They offer several flavour selections and can also cater for any dietary requirements so nobody misses out. We’ll work with them on the day so you don’t need to worry about a thing.
But what about the all-important cake-cutting photo? We’ve thought of that.
Our cakes are cut-enabled to give the impression you are cutting the real thing before the cake is taken away. Your guests will be none the wiser, leaving you with an elegant crowd pleaser and a few extra hundred dollars in your pocket.

What is used to decorate the cake?
The outside of the cake is actually made of all the same sorts of ingredients and using the same pastry techniques you’d find in a real wedding cake – so it really does look like the real thing! Nobody need know it’s ‘unreal‘.
This means the possibilities for decoration are endless! You can choose from our selection of ribbons and cake toppers, or if you’re inspired to decorate with something else, we’re happy to accommodate. We’re happy to work with your stylist and/or florist to bring your dream cake to life.
How does the whole process with Unreal Wedding Cakes work?
1. If you already like what you see, select the style of cake you like from our ever-growing range. Or, you can choose up to four tiers to mix and match to make your own unique style (which you then have the choice to name and have added to our website after your wedding for other to admire and choose);
2. Head to the Contact & Booking page and fill in the enquiry form with your details and click ‘Send’;
3. We’ll call you within 48 hours to discuss any question we both may have and finalise your booking;
4. We’ll deliver the cake and set it up at your venue (working with you, your florist and/or stylist to make sure it looks perfect);
5. We’ll come and pick it up once the celebrations are complete!
So that’s it!
You won’t have to worry about a thing on the day. And because you will have been able to view your cake prior to the big day, you won’t get that sinking feeling when you see the cake for the first time, and it isn’t what you expected.
