A Take on Wedding Cake

Vintage wedding cupcakes

Don’t you agree that wedding cakes are just lovely to look at? These days, what’s inside your lovely decorated cake is just as important as what’s on the outside! Not a big fan of traditional fruit cake? Then opt for something you do like (it is your wedding after all) and remember: the bride gets what the bride wants!

Traditional vs. modern wedding cakes: Some brides still love the idea of having a three tier wedding cake covered in white fondant, while a cupcake tower is also a very popular choice for a wedding cake. The choice is solely up to the bride and groom.

Your vision: If you’ve had your dream wedding cake in your head for many years, chances are, it’s already been done! Try looking on Pinterest for ideas that suit your vision, to give the baker a better understanding of what you had in mind. If you have no idea what you want yet, consider cake decorations to suit the rest of your wedding theme. Elements from your décor or your wedding dress can be incorporated i.e. pearls, diamanté, lace, ribbon, flowers etc.

The baker: Choose a reputable bakery or baker if it isn’t someone you know. Look at wedding cakes they have done in the past, and give them your ideas well in advance. A cake tasting is also a good idea if you are opting for any exotic cake flavours.
