Cutting into the wedding cake and feeding each other a slice is certainly a meaningful part of your wedding celebration.

When deciding on the cake for your wedding, consider the following :

  • Style i.e. classic, quirky or modern designs?
  • Shape i.e. round, square, rectangle or irregular?
  • Flavour. i.e. traditional or contemporary? A single flavour or a combination?
  • Frosting i.e. buttercream, marzipan or royal icing?

Other issues to think about :

  • Select from a design catalogue or commission a custom design?
  • Will the cake be delivered and assembled or will someone from your wedding party have to collect?
  • Where will you display the cake at the wedding banquet?
  • During which part of the banquet will you cut the cake?
  • Are you serving the cake as dessert or will it only be for you as a couple?

 

Tip : Embellishing your cake with fresh flowers will be less costly when compared to sugar paste flowers. Check out our partner designers here.
