Wedding cakes symbolize the sweetness and the charm of a wedding! In weddings, cakes can be customized with extra tiers, colors and toppings to capture this sweet moment in a couple's life and make it more memorable. Lumps can be decorated to match the wedding theme but they can also be designed to reflect the personality and likings of the couple.
To choose the perfect cake for your wedding ceremony, here are some top tips from wedding professionals:
Skim through cake pictures
This is one of the ways to get an idea regarding what you want your cake to be like. On wedding planners' websites, you can find several pictures of cakes in a variety of colors. You can also find cakes in different shapes such as square and round.
You also collect pictures of cakes, toppers, accessories and charms to show them to wedding lump suppliers.
Select the cake toppers
From the pictures, you will find an amazing variety of wedding cake toppers ranging from the traditional husband and wife figurines to cute monograms and animal figures. To give the cake a personal touch, an exact replica of the husband and wife is used on the cake. You can also use items which reflect your personal likings and interest, on the cake.
For instance, if the two of you share the love of photography and met each other on a photography trip, you could personalize your cake with a photography camera topper!
Select the cake style
The cake should be a part of your wedding. It should be in line with the reception venue, wedding theme and even your wedding gown or the wedding menu. All the elements of your wedding will help you decide the structure and design of the lump. If you want your lump to have colorful accents according to the decorations at the venue, give your baker some fabric swatches.
Get the right size
As a rule, three-tiered cakes serve 50 to 100 guests. If you have 200 guests or more, you will need five layerr of cake. Again, the venue will determine the structure of the cake. If your reception is in a grand room with high ceilings, you could increase the cake's stature with columns between the tiers.
Get some savings
Sometimes, people get a small cake with tiers and toppers and supplement it with sheet cakes of the same flavor, in the back. This budget-savvy technique comes in handy when you have a large number of guests, since sheet cakes are less expensive. If you are serving dessert in addition to your cake, you could get cake to serve half of your guests. This will decrease the serving size as well as the costs.
