While cupcakes have become the latest wedding trend to hit the market, a recent survey results have shown that more than 68% of couples still opt for a traditional tiered wedding cake.
The cake has become more than just a dessert confectionery. It serves as the focal point for the reception and a backdrop for photos. The wedding cakes have been traditionally represented as the first meal between husband and wife. Creating the best wedding day memories is easy with the right cake.
One of the biggest considerations when selecting the right cake is size. The towering, three tiered cake has always been popular, even with brides who are having small, intimate affairs. The problem is often that there is too much cake for smaller weddings. Decorators have devised an ingenious way to solve this problem. By using a "dummy" layer which is shaped like a cake but made from Styrofoam, brides can enjoy a tall and majestic cake, even if the wedding is small.
Brides and grooms alike have been expressing their individuality through their cakes. Now instead of the traditional white cake with butter cream, couples are choosing flavors like ganache, tiramisu and raspberry lemon cake. Thematic cakes are all the rage, with couples customizing their cakes for beachfront, seasonal and destination weddings.
When it comes to creating long-lasting wedding memories, the cake is one of the major players in making the big day memorable. From custom designs to delectable flavors, the wedding cake will always provide a sweet ending to a beautiful day.
