Choosing a wedding cake
While the bride and her dress play the central roles in the wedding overall, when it comes to the wedding breakfast table, all eyes will be on the cake.
It's for this reason that most brides would like a unique wedding cake that will be admired and remembered by every guest - a cake that looks fabulous and tastes exquisite.
But choosing a wedding cake isn't just about design and flavour; several other factors need to be taken into consideration when deciding on the wedding cake design that best suits your needs.
A well-made and unique wedding cake design isn't cheap but there are ways of keeping costs down. One way is to choose a sponge cake rather than the traditional fruitcake, or perhaps have one sponge cake tier and the other fruitcake? Not only will you be cutting costs, you'll also be able to please guests whose taste palettes don't extend to rich fruitcake. Chocolate cake is also an alternative.
Also consider the importance of a unique wedding cake. A good wedding cake supplier will be able to customise an otherwise standard wedding cake design to match your theme colours, thus making it unique to you without the added cost of designing a cake from scratch.
How many guests will be attending the reception?
If the wedding's small, a two tier cake at 10" and 8" will give up to 30 servings, while either a three-tier wedding cake at 16", 12" and 8" or four-tiers at 14", 10", 8" and 6" will serve up to 100 for a larger wedding. However, if you're inviting up to 500 guests, you may need five or six tiers. Your wedding cake supplier will be able to advise you on this.
Do any guests have a serious allergy that would leave them unable to enjoy their slice of the wedding cake? Gluten intolerance and nut allergies are the most common and can easily be worked around by asking your wedding cake supplier to make one gluten or nut free tier.
As a last word, please remember that your wedding cake should be chosen and ordered at least six months before the date of wedding as the cake itself will need time to mature and elaborate decoration takes time to be properly executed. And do remember to order the cake boxes!
