Creating the perfect wedding cake

Weddings are something that many people dream of from a very young age which means they want every single detail to be right. Planning a wedding can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few years and many people put a lot of effort into making sure every single detail is perfect, including the wedding cake, one of the centrepieces of the day. However, getting the perfect cake needn’t involve be too much stress if you follow this helpful guide.

Determine your style

One of the most crucial things that you must establish before committing yourself to a certain design is your personal style. Nailing down a style can depend on the venue, the theme of the wedding and also the time of year. For springtime weddings, you may wish to opt for floral and tastefully colourful cake whilst in winter white may be a suitable choice. Look through examples of existing cakes and try to imagine it at your wedding; does it look right and do you like it?

Keep your options open

Obviously compromise will have to play a large part in designing your wedding cake – you can’t just act on your own tastes, but you have to consider what your future spouse wants and also your guests. What flavour is most suitable for your guests? Are yours and your partner’s design preferences different? Is your design request even possible for your budget or the materials available? Flexibility is important when choosing a cake so always approach it with an open mind.

Explore the basics of cake design

In order to know what you want, you need to know what you’re talking about. Take the time to read up about the different styles and shapes of choices so you have a better idea of what it is that you want.

Test the taste

Many believe that a wedding cake has to look its best and that taste is often compromised to focus on the aesthetics. In fact, the taste is as important as the appearance of your cake. After all, your guests will also taste it so you need to impress. Forget the diet – this part is “research” – and start sampling all flavour contenders.
