A real work of art, the wedding cake is often the most talked-about item at the reception. Colorful, trendy, or classic, the options are endless. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind to help you pick the right sugar masterpiece.
The Right Style:
Find a cake that complements your wedding theme. Add sugar or natural flowers reminiscent of your bouquet, or a texture that matches your dress. Go for something modern like a marble or geode cake or go for a classic white on white. A good baker will be there to guide you.
Pick the size according to the number of guests and the size of the room. Make sure you have enough portions for everyone. Be mindful of your venue; a 5-tier cake may look out of place in a room with low ceilings.
Stay on Budget:
Cakes can quickly become pricey. To save on cost, trade fancy sugar flowers for natural ones. A sweet table with various cupcakes and other delicious treats can also be a perfect option.
Love on Top:
While entirely optional, a cake topper can be a great keepsake for the years following your wedding. Whether you go for figurines, flowers, or a monogram, pick something representing you and your husband-to-be.
Keep Allergies in Mind:
Today, many people suffer from various allergies. Try to stay clear from nuts and peanuts or other allergens that some of your guests may have.
Book a Tasting Appointment:
While the look is essential, a tasty cake will come a long way. Take the time to taste different flavors and textures that will please both you and your guests.
