Your wedding cake will be the focal point of your wedding day, besides the beautiful bride of course! There are so many cake designs to choose ranging from classic and simple to elegant and unique. Once you know the theme, decor, and style of your wedding, it can ease the selection process. Whichever you decide, it’s always great to match your personality. And, while selecting the design of your cake is important, it’s essential to make sure your cake tastes as good as it looks.
One of my absolute favorite parts of planning a wedding is the taste testing! In addition to the many cake designs, there are also so many wonderful flavors to chose from…red velvet, chocolate ganache, banana buttercream, lemon, strawberry - I could go on! I, along with most guests, all look forward to the cake cutting. There’s nothing sweeter than watching a couple experience their first obstacle as husband and wife.
Bonus tip: To cut the cost of your cake for a big wedding, order the cake you want and only feed the minimum amount required (or whatever your baker recommends). Next, order a sheet cake and keep it in the kitchen. When the baker takes the wedding cake to back to cut and serve, they’ll serve the sheet cake as well and none will be the wiser!
