The Best Wedding Cakes in Colorado


These local bakeries make a mean wedding cake!

Choosing a Cake for Your Colorado Wedding

With the possible exception of trying out the menus from wedding caterers and tasting wines that pair well with the various cuisines, cake tasting just might be the most enjoyable part of the entire wedding planning process. We always joke with our couples that they should bring us along if they need a second opinion. This is a service that we provide free of charge and it’s an open-ended offer (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). There are a bunch of great cake makers in the Centennial state, but below you’ll find our own personal list of the best Colorado wedding cakes.

But why limit it to cake? A lot of couples these days are opting for all sorts of non-traditional dessert items, like cupcakes or pies or a variety of other delicious confections. Colorado is a super laid-back state and, as you can probably imagine, weddings here tend to be a bit less traditional than those on the East Coast and in other parts of the country. You want your wedding to be uniquely you, so feel free to get creative with your dessert menu. If you love wedding cake, then by all means, feel free to splurge on a big-ass, awesome wedding cake, but don’t feel like you have to do so just because Uncle Joe and Aunt Edna say that it’s what you “have to do.”

Oh, and if you do decide to have a wedding cake, think about new and unique ways you can spice up the cake cutting ceremony during your wedding reception. No worries if you want to keep it traditional, but we’ve seen lots of cool alternatives to the traditional cutting of the cake, including a firefighter’s wedding in which they used and axe and another wedding where they cut the cake with a super cool (and super long) sword.

There are countless bakeries in Colorado, but we’d recommend starting with these folks.
