Wedding planning? Leave the cake to Ferguson Plarre


Family-owned Ferguson Plarre’s Bakehouse makes saying “I-do” a piece of cake with a stunning new selection of wedding cakes joining their existing range.


The Victorian based bakery is introducing 12 new contemporary wedding cakes to its extensive range offering a cake for every budget, size and taste. Head Baker Michael Plarre said the range had something to suit everyone’s budget, particularly important at the moment with cost-of-living pressures being at the front of many people’s minds. “Our dedicated team can bake cakes to cater for an intimate gathering through to a large affair with coffee sized serves for up to 120 guests, all while being very cost effective,” Michael said.


Handmade by a team of experienced pastry chefs and cake decorators, the new additions to the wedding range include beautifully decorated cakes that also won’t break the bank. The talented team includes cake decorator, Bonnie Clark, who recently won first place in four categories at the 2023 Royal Melbourne Show.  Bonnie has won first place in numerous categories, including wedding cakes, at the show since 2018 and credits Ferguson Plarre with turning her interest to cakes about 10 years ago. Particularly appealing to those that have left things to the last minute, and rare in an industry where most things need to be confirmed months in advance, most of the cakes have a short turnaround time of between three to seven days.


“Let Ferguson Plarre take some of the stress and overwhelm out of planning your wedding and choose from a variety of single, two or three tier customisable, modern and traditional wedding cakes,” Michael added. “For those planning a wedding with a theme, designing your own drip cake could be the way to go. Simply choose the colours and coordinate them with your wedding theme. The range really does have something for everyone. “All of our cakes are made using only the best ingredients and they’re all made from scratch. From the fondant to the cream, to the cake batter itself – all orders are baked fresh by our team.”


The wedding cakes start from RRP $140 and are now available to order. Head online, choose your cake then either nominate your pick-up location, have it delivered, or just pop in to your local store.
