You have the venue and the dress, what’s next? The cake of course! The Fearrington House Restaurant’s cake designers will work with you to create your wedding cake vision.

From your initial meeting to your cake tasting to the cutting of the final product, rest assured that your confectionery creation is in skilled hands. All Fearrington cakes are made from scratch with the freshest ingredients available, including butter (never shortening!) and high quality Valrhona cocoa for chocolate and red velvet cakes as well as chocolate fillings. Our wedding cakes are not only beautiful, but delicious. See more of our cakes!

In accordance with the accolades of The Fearrington House Restaurant, the cuisine at your wedding will be crafted with a focus on seasonality, presentation and taste. “We keep it regional and local and use quality ingredients,” says Executive Chef Colin Bedford. “We pick food that people can relate to – what they’re familiar with – and put a twist on it, like a spin on old classics.”

    Thank you so much for turning my vision into reality and baking such beautiful cakes for [groom] and I. We were so pleased with how they turned out, not to mention how delicious they tasted! I think I ate at least four pieces by the end of the night. [Groom] absolutely loved his groom’s cake and he was so surprised when he saw it. What a special memory for him and I. Thank you again for all your hard work and for being such a sweetheart during the planning process. We appreciate it more than you know!
