The wedding cake is an important aspect of your wedding, as it completes the ceremony. The guests at your wedding are most likely to remember your wedding cake, so it has look great, and taste even better. Following are a few things to remember when ordering your wedding cake.
Size: The size of your cake will largely depend on the number of guests you are expecting at the reception. If there are a lot of guests attending, order more than one cake or have a groom’s cake in addition to the wedding cake.
Cake Topper: Traditionally, cakes have always had cake toppers. It used to be a replica of a bride and groom, but nowadays, anything goes. You can choose a topper that represents you as a couple. Some cakes are designed very whimsically with lop-sided tiers, and they do not require a cake topper at all.
Colour of the cake: The colour of your cake matters more than you think. Usually, your baker will ask you for your wedding theme to finalize the colour of the cake. Make sure you choose edible colours for your cake, as your guests will want to enjoy every part of it. Fondant and butter-cream can be made in almost all of the basic colours, although fondant gives bakers more flexibility.
Flavour: Your cake needs to taste as good as it looks. Give lots of feedback at your cake tasting appointment. If you like more than one flavour, the pastry chef can incorporate several flavours in each of the cake’s tiers.
Ordering a cake: Many brides make the mistake of procrastinating a cake tasting appointment. Bakeries are usually booked solid, especially during wedding season. At times, decoration pieces and ingredients have to be ordered, or made from scratch ahead of time. Decide on a cake at least four to six months before your wedding date to ensure that you get the cake you have been dreaming of.
