Wedding cakes have been a tradition for centuries, but they have become much more elaborate. It can be difficult to find just the right cake for the reception because there are so many options available to the bride and groom. While wedding planning is stressful, choosing a cake is one of the most fun parts of planning. This is because of all the tasting of different wedding cakes! The couple should savor the flavour and enjoy this aspect of their planning process!
The first thing to do when looking for wedding cakes is to find reputable bakeries that specialise in wedding cakes. It is a good idea to ask friends and family as well as look online. Most bakeries have websites with some of their most popular designs as well as the flavours they offer. Just like everything else in life, it is important to get more than one quote and in this case to taste more than one cake!
Most bakeries require that the bride and groom set up for an appointment to taste the wedding cakes. Each bakery will handle the tasting differently, but they will be very similar. The bakery will usually offer a sample of their white cake and chocolate cake. They may offer some of their more unusual flavours, but this shouldnâ€™t be expected. The bakery will also offer samples of their different frostings and fillings. This is the time to try out all of the different variations. If the bride and groom are determined to try a specific flavour or flavour combination then they should consider purchasing a small cake with that flavour. This will help them choose between all of the possible flavour combinations of wedding cakes while introducing them to several bakeries.
Once the flavours have been decided, it is a good idea to choose the size since this has an impact on many designs of wedding cakes. This is usually based on the number of people that will be attending the wedding. However, the bride and groom can specify any size that they like. The best part about multiple tiered wedding cakes is the ability to choose different flavours for each tier.
Each bakery will offer books of their best wedding cake designs. The bride and groom likely have some concept already in mind, especially if they are having a themes wedding. Wedding cakes are an excellent way to incorporate a theme. If there is no specific theme, then the cake should fit in with the overall atmosphere of the wedding. If the couple has something in mind that is different than the designs the bakery already has, then they should mention this. Most reputable bakeries have the ability to make the designs into reality.
Wedding cakes are a true thing of beauty and being able to create these wedding cakes is a true talent. The bride and groom should consider all of these things when choosing the right bakery and the perfect wedding cake!
