Coconut & Lime

Ideal if you are looking for something a little different. Made with delicious coconut cream, shredded coconut and lime-flavoured buttercream.

Lemon Cake

A great zesty option, ideal for summer weddings! This light cake is made with fresh lemons and filled with homemade lemon buttercream.

Red Velvet

The famous red-coloured chocolate cake is layered with a cream cheese flavoured swiss meringue buttercream – always a hit on our Galway cakes menu!

Coffee Cake

Just like grandma used to make with mocha-flavoured buttercream, as well as chopped walnuts if desired.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Who doesn’t love chocolate cake? Especially when it’s chocolate fudge. Make it even more decadent by adding Baileys, mint chocolate or an irresistible chocolate and orange combination. A great hit as a communion cake too!

Belgian Chocolate Biscuit Cake

A must if you ask me. Easy to serve and delicious, what more could you ask for! Made with the finest dark Belgian chocolate, this choice always proves to be a hit. Even better, it lasts up to two weeks in the fridge, if you are lucky enough to have any leftovers after the first day! You can also spice it up by adding rum-soaked raisins.

Carrot Cake

The ideal cake flavour for couples who want to go the non-traditional route. This soft, dense cake is moist and has a lovely consistency due to grated carrots and nuts being the main components of the batter. It is typically deliciously paired with fluffy orange-flavoured buttercream.

Vanilla Cake

You can’t go wrong with plain vanilla. This is one of the most basic cakes and can be kept simple with vanilla frosting, or it can be dressed up any way you like with essentially any flavoured buttercream, including passion fruit and lime, raspberry, white chocolate or salty caramel just to mention a few. Gin Tonic and Elder-flower if you so desire .

Traditional Fruit Cake

A fruit cake usually filled with juicy raisins, sultanas, currants and cherries, soaked in brandy for several days before being slow cooked. It is then left to mature for up to three months, allowing the brandy to fully soak in.

Chocolate Guinness Cake

This cake is magnificent in its damp blackness.There is enough sugar – a certain understatement here – to counter any potential bitterness of the Guinness, I add cream  cheese but it makes it frothier and lighter which I regard as gastronomically desirable.
