Okay, I have Googled it, and searched on here, but I can never get this search engine to play nice, and I got nothing from Google, either. What in tarnation is a "bespoke cake"? It sounds like something out of a 17th century romance novel, but other than that, I'm clueless. I see it all the time, though!

Based on a Google search, it sounds like a custom wedding cake. Here are a couple of places I found:

This one has a definition

Hope that helps. I had never heard that term before either.

It's a British term meaning custom made. It can apply to cakes, suits, anything really.

It basically means 'made to order' i.e. a unique cake crafted to the brides requirements and not just picked out of a catelog. Makes you sound a bit more 'fancy pants' if you use the term.
