Wedding Cakes April 22, 2009

Your baker will be able to answer all your questions about your wedding cake, but here are some things to think about. 

You will want your cake to mimic the style and formality of the wedding. Come up with a few ideas of textures, colors, accessories (like flowers or cake toppers) and shapes to give yourself some options. Discuss with your baker what would work best for you. Also keep in mind the state of the venue. If you will be outside in Phoenix in August, you will want to consider finding an air conditioned building or cool place to store it before the reception. You might also want to consider using fondant instead of buttercream. Some people don’t like the taste of fondant as well, but it is less likely to melt and drip off the cake. If the wedding is indoors, consider the surroundings. If it will be standing up against a white wall, consider putting bright flowers on the cake to make it stand out (talk to your baker about which flowers can harmlessly touch food, or have an off-white cake. If the reception site is through a low archway, up the winding stairs and down the narrow hall, it would be a nightmare to transport a tall cake. 

You can have a unique cake and still be classy. Here are some fun ones I found.

    Isn’t that chocolate cake devine! I love it!
    It’s so true that bakers can answer many questions. When looking at a baker be sure to take the time to check out their website before you call/book a consult. Most bakers will have a FAQ page with lots of information on the hows and whats of getting the cake of your dreams and in your budget!

    Great blog! 🙂
