When selecting a cake for your wedding day, there are many factors which should be taken into consideration. In particular, the cake should represent the personality of both the bride and groom. Here are some of the things to think about when choosing a wedding cake.
One of the factors that should be considered when choosing a wedding cake is colour. If the wedding theme colours are blue and white, perhaps it would be best to choose a wedding cake that is also blue and white. Although many couples still opt for the traditional white wedding cake.
Another factor to consider is the decoration on the cake. Most couples make the decision to add floral decorations to their wedding cake. However, this is not the only option available; bows, ribbons, stripes and polka dots are also common choices. For a themed wedding, it might be an idea to incorporate the theme into the cake decoration. It is important to consider the overall flavour of the cake. Most bakers will have a variety of flavours available to choose from, and will also offer the choice for the icing between butter cream, fondant, or royal icing. The icing that you decide on will determine the appearance and flavour of the wedding cake.
These are just a few of the factors that should be considered when choosing a wedding cake. The cake should be the focal point of any wedding reception, and therefore great care should be taken selecting the right cake for the day.
