How to choose your wedding cake

Welcome to Wedding Wednesday first blog! On Monday we have our first consultation with our Wedding cake maker. I am so excited and can’t wait for us to be able to discuss our dreams and ideas and see if they can become a reality. I want to share some advice on how to choose your cake design, style, flavour and tips.

The cake is one of the most dominant symbols of your wedding. It will be featured prominently in your wedding pictures. You can use your cake to bring together your wedding colours and theme.

One of the first things you need to decide is how many tiers you would like. In order to make that decision you need to know, how many guests will you provide cake for? What is your cake budget?

Now you have the practical thoughts out the way now comes the fun, designing the cake. Do you have a vision of how you would like to look? What colours, themes or decorations do you want to include? Do you want a cake topper?

Once you know what you want it’s time to start the road on achieving it. Don’t leave it until the last minute you need at least 3-6 months to have cake made etc. You need to find a cake maker, find someone with proven reputation- ask friends and family.  Visit bakery’s and asks to see pictures or models of their work. Take pictures or drawings of things you like with you to consultations and taste, taste ,taste a cake should not just look good it should taste good too.
