The one thing most guests remember from the wedding – aside from the first dance – is the wedding cake. This is one of the focal points to any special day, and you can guarantee that your cake will make an appearance in many of the photographs. Deciding on what wedding cake to have can be very difficult; there are so many shapes, styles, and colors to choose from now. Here are a few things to consider when choosing your perfect cake.
Style of cake
When people picture wedding cakes, the most common image is that of a three-tiered, pillared white or ivory cake. However, your wedding cake does not have to be like this anymore – unless you want it to be of course. There are so many options available, you could opt for a traditional pillared cake, stacked tiers, round, square, cupcake towers, or even a novelty sculpted design. Occasion cakes can now be designed to suit the theme of your wedding and your personality.
Once again there is the traditional option of a heavy fruit cake with marzipan, but more and more people are opting for a Madeira sponge, chocolate sponge, coffee sponge, lemon sponge or even rainbow colored sponge! A good cake baker should be able to create any type of wedding cake filling you want. Remember that not all tiers have to be the same so you could always choose to have each tier with a different type of cake.
