How To Choose Your Perfect Wedding Cake

Planning your wedding is going to be one of the most exciting things you will ever do. Although at times the whole thing may seem like a mammoth task, with list upon list of things to do. But by breaking it down into bite sized chunks, it will be great fun.

And one of the fun parts of your wedding planning is choosing your wedding cake. It’s often said that the cutting of the wedding cake is one of the most photographed parts of the wedding, second only to the bride’s dress. So the cake you choose has to be pretty special.

Choose A Baker

So how do you go about choosing the perfect wedding cake where are simply hundreds of different cakes out there? Do you choose fruit cake, sponge cake, chocolate cake, round cake, square cake –  the choice is endless.

Well the best way to begin your search is find a design that you like. You can find a whole of wedding cake picture galleries online. Once you have decided on the design you want, then the next task is to find a good baker who specializes in wedding cakes. Often the best way to do this is to ask around family and friends, especially those who have got married recently, and get some recommendations.

When you’ve finally selected the baker who is going to make your wedding cake, arrange a meeting with him. Ask him to show you as many pictures of different designs and styles as he can. You will not only want the style of your cake to be attractive, but it will need to fit in with the theme of your wedding.

Stick To Your Budget

Of course, wedding cakes can be very expensive, and buying a large multi-tier cake can take a huge chunk out of your budget. If you are on a tight budget, then you should think carefully about the amount of money you want to spend on your cake.

You may be better off choosing a smaller, less elaborate cake. So think, do you really need a cake with three tiers? The number of guests you have at your reception should determine the size of the cake. Another way to save a lot of money is to have a sponge cake and decorate it with fresh fruits and flowers. After all a lot of people don’t like fruitcake, and very often most of the cake is wasted, and so is your money!

Then on your wedding day, your beautiful wedding cake can take it’s rightful place as the centrepiece of your reception.
