Every guest that comes to your wedding is going to expect a piece of cake, and you're probably going to want a beautiful one to look at in your wedding photographs for the many years to come. Wedding cakes don't have to be very extravagant, but they do have to be something you love. Here are some tips so you can choose the perfect one for you.
Before you start going for tastings and deciding on icings, you first want to choose the design of your cake and more specifically, the shape of it. Weddings cakes are traditionally round, tiered layers but they don't have to be. Today there really are no rules on wedding cakes. So if you want only one tier, no tier, or a diamond-shape, you can have it! It's important to remember however, that a square or round cake is usually chosen because this is the easiest and fastest to cut and serve. So, before you choose that octagonal vertical cake, take a minute to imagine how you're going to cut that in front of all your guests. If you don't mind working around some angles, go for it!
Traditionally, wedding cakes have also been white cake with white icing. But remember that weddings are becoming much more contemporary. So if you have another color in mind, just let your baker know and they'll work with it.
Your baker is the most important person when it comes to your wedding cake, and choosing a good one is very important. Make sure that you ask to see their portfolio, that you can talk to past clients, that you can have tastings to see which cake you like best, and that they can custom-make your cake. Also make sure to ask about all the little extras, such as whether or not they'll deliver and set it up, and what extra charges are not included with the price!
