Wedding Cake Advice

An important piece of advice for a wedding cake is to keep it at a central place in the hall and not in some corner. It should be the centre of attraction for the guests than anything else as it deserves all kinds of exclamations due to its flavor and decoration.

Any fantastic traditional wedding cakes are white with some decoration of fruits or flowers. However, it is a good idea to include other pastel shades in the cake like dusty pink, light blue or light gold and sage green. One more common design in a cake is a white lace of icing around the cake that resembles a bride's wedding gown.

Instead of a three tiered wedding cake you could go for a cupcake for each individual guest. You could have choice of 2-3 flavors of your choice like lemon, carrot, pineapple or chocolate. It is also a nice idea to serve your wedding cake on the pudding.

Especially in spring and summers using fruits in cake is a good option as plenty of fresh fruits are available and also the shelf life of the cake is much longer in this case. The cake remains fresh even after a long wedding day. A simple sponge cupcake could be appreciated by many people especially in summers. You could have a heavy dramatic and tasteful chocolate wedding cakes preferably if you have a winter wedding.

It is best to consult a professional confectioner for advice on your wedding cake. It is also a good idea to visit wedding exhibitions where these people exhibit their cake designs. Before you book a cake for your wedding make sure that your confectioner specializes in the kind of cake you want for your wedding. It is also a good idea to go by reference from any of your friends who know any confectioner well.
