From ready-to-wear to couture gowns, you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to wedding dressesView now
There are many different designs, types, colours and shapes of wedding cakes to choose from. The best way to choose what you like is to look through books and magazines and then look at pictures of your cake makers work.
Things to consider when choosing you cake are:
The wedding cake is usually cut into small slices and packaged into small bags for the guest to take home. Another option is to serve your cake as a dessert. It will cost extra for a larger cake but this is offset by reducing your catering bill in the dessert costs. You may also wish to keep the top layer of your cake for your first anniversary or the birth of your first child.
You may wish to match the cake decorations with the bridesmaids dresses or your flower colours. The traditional wedding cake is still iced in white but coloured icing is a popular option. To match colour schemes you will need to take to your cake maker, samples and pictures of flowers and fabrics.
The traditional fruit cake is still the most popular, though you are not limited to this. Other options available consist of chocolate, white or orange mud cake or sponge cake. If you wish to keep the top layer of the cake it must be fruit cake. You can still have other cake types for the lower layers.
Most wedding cakes are decorated with flowers made of icing or silk. Your cake maker will provide both of these. Another option is fresh flowers. These will need to be ordered from your cake decorator. There are countless designs for the wedding cake. To choose your design look through as many books and magazines as you can.
To order your wedding cake you need to organise an interview with your cake maker.
