Wedding Cake 101

Define Your Style: 

Whether it's classic, modern, rustic, or whimsical, your cake should align with the aesthetics you envision for your celebration. The design of the cake is a canvas for creativity, ranging from traditional tiered cakes to contemporary and personalized creations. Collaborate closely with your chosen baker, providing inspiration from your wedding colors, floral arrangements, or thematic elements. Personal touches can elevate your cake, whether it's incorporating monograms, edible flowers, or design elements that hold sentimental value. Seasonal considerations add an extra layer of charm; tailor the cake design to reflect the time of year in which you're tying the knot. 

Match Your Cake with Your Wedding Colors:

Incorporate your wedding colors into the cake design. This can be achieved through frosting shades, edible flowers, or decorative elements. Coordination with the overall color palette enhances the visual appeal.

Explore Flavor Options:

Classic flavors like vanilla and chocolate are always popular, but don't shy away from exploring unique options such as red velvet, lemon, or specialty combinations. To ensure your cake not only looks magnificent, but also tastes divine, schedule a cake-tasting session with your baker. This allows you to sample different flavors and confirm that the chosen combinations are as delightful as they sound on paper.

Prioritize Quality Ingredients:

Emphasize the use of high-quality ingredients. A delicious cake starts with fresh and flavorful components. Discuss ingredient options with your baker to ensure the best taste and quality.

Budget Considerations:

Establish a clear budget for your wedding cake. Discuss pricing with your baker, considering factors like the complexity of the design, the number of tiers, and any special features. Be transparent about your budget constraints to find the right balance. The average cake starts at about $7/slice + design and delivery fees. Often times, catering companies will charge a cake cutting fee as well.
