When it comes to wedding planning, few decisions are as delightful as choosing the wedding cake! Saturday, Matt and I have BIG plans to sample slice after slice of delicious cake at our appointment with our oh-so-talented cake baker!
I believe one of the best parts of any wedding is definitely the CAKE! Although you may be thinking it is just a cake – the wedding cake will, in fact, be an important detail of our wedding reception. The eyes of all our guests will automatically rivet to the layers of cream, frosting and sugar with which we will cap the evening by cutting for all to share.
So, while it is important that our cake matches the style and theme of our wedding, it should also be a proper reflection of us as a couple too. I can hardly contain my excitement, so many details to decide on:
Design style – square or round?
Size/Tiers – should I really save the top layer for our first anniversary?
Frosting – buttercream or fondant?
Flavors and fillings?
Accents – fresh flowers, gumpaste flowers, edible beading, monogram?
Cake toppers– traditional, fresh floral, sugared fruit?
While I have been stockpiling wedding magazine clippings and photos on my computer, I am having the hardest time deciding on the cake of my dreams!
And what about cupcakes as an alternative to a wedding cake? There’s something so whimsically childlike about unwrapping a cupcake!
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!!
