Let Them All Eat Cake!!!
The cake is a centerpiece of the reception that resembles beauty and tradition. It also says a lot about your personal style. Guests always search the party to take a glimpse at the wonderful masterpiece you have chosen for your special day. The cake is also sought after and patiently waited upon for the sweet taste everyone desires. These days, a cake can come in many shapes and sizes with many varieties to distinguish a difference from every wedding. Some of the top trends in wedding cakes today include layers of moist cake with swirling patterns of fondant. Non-traditional couples are also taking on the look of artistic cakes to represent something that is important to them. We had a fun bride and groom a few weeks ago that loved tennis so the groom’s cake was made to look like a tennis court, with shoes and tennis balls. The cake shown above was for a client who love to play golf, hence the golfballs on the top, but still wanted it to be traditional and show their classic elegance.
One way to make your cake different is to design something with an unusual flavor rather than normal white wedding cake...although we always love Mexican vanilla cake! For example, a couple could choose red velvet cake with layers of thick cream cheese icing. A custom in the South is to have a groom’s cake but to do something a little different “down South” you could always combine the bride and groom’s cake into one large cake. You can change the color from a normal traditional wedding cake to include colors of the wedding or make it black and white.
Some brides would like to explore different options for their cake. One idea is to have different levels of pies to resemble the towering of a cake. Other ideas are cakes made of cupcakes or mini-cheesecakes. You can also do a smaller cake and include a dessert bar with your favorite items.
The most important thing to remember when choosing your wedding cake: TAKE YOUR GROOM WITH YOU TO ENJOY THE ‘TASTING’ BECAUSE IT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THEY ENJOY MOST ABOUT PLANNING THE WEDDING. HAPPY TASTING!!!
