Long ago, wedding cakes were boring vanilla-flavored, round in shape and came topped with the traditional set of newlyweds happily clutching hands while their feet lay buried in mounds of icing. Nowadays, brides and grooms are slashing the cake myths of old and paving the way for bolder, better, bigger confections that, well, take the cake!
When you begin considering the cake you want, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Cakes can be made in squares, rounds, “topsy turvy” shapes and they come in more flavors than you can shake a butter cream frosted-stick at. Go into your cake tasting with an open mind if you’re unsure of what you want, and choose your favorites. Your guests will appreciate the dessert when they see your sweet smile as you share a slice with your new spouse.
Don’t be afraid to change-up the cake stand. There’s no longer a traditional stigma associated with a plain, boring old stand. Metal, plastic, glass, ceramic—they come in all shapes, forms and colors. The important part is choosing one that helps elevate and highlight your cake so that guests can take it all in before you slice it up.
If you already know what kind of cake you want or even what baker you prefer to use, don’t wait to book it! Weddings are made by decision and if you’ve already made up your mind about something, there’s no reason to wait until that silly to-do list tells you its time. Reserve the baker, design, flavor and style that means the most to you and be done with it. It’s a sweet relief.
