Choosing the Right Kelowna Wedding Cake Bakery

Buying and choosing a wedding cake can be daunting. It shouldn’t be! And with our help, it won’t. Choosing a Kelowna wedding cake should be a fun and special experience, especially since you only get to do it once. The etiquette that is involved with when to cut the cake, serve the cake, and save the cake for later can get pretty confusing, so we have done our best to break it down for you.

Order in Advance

You should typically order your cake four to six months in advance. Weddings during the months of May through October should be ordered closer to six months out, because these are busier times of year. Saturdays are also the busiest day of the week so Thursday and Friday celebrations will have better luck ordering their cake later in advance.

Do guests eat the wedding cake?

Guests do eat the cakes, but only after it has been cut by the bride and groom. Typically, it is pre-sliced for you, allowing guests to grab a piece when they choose. After that, they may eat a slice in celebration with the other guests.

Saving The Topper

This can depend on the wishes of the bride. Most of the time, the topper is packed up by a designated member of catering staff. Couples typically take it home to freeze until their first year anniversary, when stye eat it again. You may also choose to take home left overs or send it home with relatives. Sometimes guests are even allowed to take home a piece or two.

Cutting the Kelowna Wedding Cakes

The bride and groom cut the matrimonial cake and typically, the groom’s as well- in front of guests. The photographer takes pictures during this tradition as well. After that, the catering staff pre-slices dessert for the guests to eat.

Number of Tiers

This comes from an old nuptial tradition, where the bride and groom were were challenged to kiss over a very tall cake. They would have good luck if they managed not to topple the cake. This is also why couples usually kiss for pictures over their wedding cakes now.


A typical rule of thumb is to cater to 80% of the guests that you have invited. If you invite 100 guests, you only need enough cake for 80 of them, since there are usually some who don’t want to eat cake. A matrimony cake with four tiers is probably best for 80 people. These tiers should be approximately 4″, 6″, 8″, and 10″.

Best Flavor

This is entirely up to you! Of course it’s important to also have a flavor that your guests will enjoy. Vanilla and chocolate are classics that never disappoint. Butter cream, raspberry, and caramel are also popular flavors that add a little decadence without being over the top.

Bridal Shower Vegan Dessert Options

Bridal Shower Vegan Dessert Options

Who says you must resign to boring leaves and vegetables just because you have gone vegan? Who says you can’t have an amazing dessert while you watch your favorite TV show just because you’ve moved to the other side of diet? Trust me, you can. You can enjoy sumptuous cakes, doughnuts, pies and even cookies and biscuits while staying green and healthy.


I’ve put together a comprehensive guide to three of the most amazing and delightful vegan desserts to keep you going each day, while you maintain your diet regimen.


  1. Pineapple Cake

Think fruity, moisture and sweet? Then look no further than the juicy pineapple cake. You will need about 5 slices of chopped pineapple, ½ cup of granulated sugar, 2 tsp of vegetable oil, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 cup of all-purpose white flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of baking soda, and a pinch of salt. You’ll also need to preheat the oven up to 350° and do much of the regular baking processes such as greasing the baking dish with either butter or oil, serving the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda to remove impurities.


  • Mix the chopped pineapple, sugar and lemon juice and blend to puree.


  • Mix the puree with oil along with dry ingredients. Do this lightly until it becomes a batter.


  • Put the batter into the greased baking dish and leave in the oven to bake for 40 minutes. Use a toothpick or knife to check. If not properly baked, leave for another 5 to 10 minutes.


  • Take it out and leave to cool on the rack.


  • Serve as desired with whipped cream or frost.


  1. Vegan Banana Cupcake

This is an easy Banana Cupcake that you can rustle up quite easily and have at a party, get-together, or during a movie with friends and family. They’re egg and dairy-free and great for you if you’re on a vegan diet. The ingredients you need are 2 large blackened and peeled bananas, 50ml sunflower/vegetable oil, 65g light brown sugar, 150g plain flour, 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp baking powder, 2 tbsp oats, 50g seed mix and dried fruit, and 2 tbsp mixed seeds. The process to making your vegan Banana Cupcake is as follows.


  • Preheat the oven up to 180°C.


  • Put the bananas, oil and sugar in a bowl and mash together until properly mixed.


  • Add your flour, cinnamon, baking powder, dried fruit, as well as seed mix, and mix properly.


  • Line the Cupcake tray with the number of cases the bananas can take, and fill each of them up to ¾ full. Then sprinkle the mixed seeds and oats over them.


  • Place in the oven and leave to bake for 25-30 minutes. Some bakers insert a skewer into a muffin and when that comes out clean, it’s an indication it is properly baked.


  • Bring it out and leave to cool for a few minutes.



  1. Cinnamon Chickpea Blondies

Talk about a moist, mouth-filling, and tender goodness with just a mild crackly crust on the outside; you won’t just love the look and the feel, but you’re sure to love the taste as well. They are much sweeter and healthier than the conventional blondie and can really get you hooked. The ingredients needed to make cinnamon Chickpea blondies are canned chickpeas, nut butter, maple syrup, raw cane sugar, oat flour, kosher salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and white chocolate chips or nuts (dairy free).


  • Prepare baking pan, oven, and food processor.


  • Rinse and drain your chickpeas and measure other ingredients.


  • Make your batter by blending chickpeas, maple syrup, and nut butter until you achieve a perfect mix.


  • Combine batter with dry ingredients. Ensure you sift all dry ingredients, including baking powder, sugar, baking soda, oat flour, cinnamon and salt and mix with the Chickpea batter in a large bowl.


  • Place in your pan and bake.


  • Eat just how you like it.


There are other recipes you can try out and there are several resources online to help you.

Ensure you follow this guide religiously, but you can also tweak things a bit to give it your own flavor.
