When it's time to turn your attention to your wedding cake, look for a bakers you can trust to do the perfect job.

Healy’s Bakery is Cork’s oldest bakery and was established in 1862. It is a Cork family-run business for six generations and the bakery has proudly served the wonderful people of Cork for 156 years.

Rachel Healy has been working in this industry for the last 26 years and has extensive experience in the trends and traditional produce.

She and the team work together with its customers to create beautiful cakes that taste as good as they look. A wedding cake is a luxury food used as the biggest celebration cake in one’s life. The highlight of almost every wedding is the speeches and the cutting of the cake by the bride and groom - therefore it is important not to leave the choice of wedding cake to chance.

Generally, a wedding cake is three or four tiers, and people choose a different flavour for each tier. In order of popularity the flavours are vanilla, Victoria sponge, lemon, chocolate fudge, chocolate biscuit, coffee, carrot, red velvet, orange, Oreo, white chocolate, traditional fruit cake or any other flavour that the client wishes, as they are all made by hand.

The range of designs on offer are contemporary, modern, classic, floral and traditional. Generally, cakes are 12”, 10”, 8” and 6” for four tiers.

Cakes are available in various shapes including square, circular, hexagonal, petal, heart etc. Typically, a cake of size 12”, 10” and 8” serves around 100-150 guests. This depends on the cake flavour.
