Wedding Cakes Galore

By Amy Spade

Wedding cakes can be the symbol of unity and the beginning of fun at a wedding reception. Images of a bride and groom smashing a piece in to each other's face are not necessary.

Going local

One of the easiest ways to pick a wedding cake is to go to your local bakery. Better yet, you can go to the bakery in the town where you will be married. When you go with an out-of-town wedding cake, you may not be able to access them quickly in an emergency.

Being close to the bakery helps you if you have any questions or concerns as the wedding gets nearer. You may want to choose a larger style or a smaller one, depending on the responses to your invitations. In fact, smaller bakeries can be more flexible than the larger, more impressive ones.

Since you won't be competing with hundreds of other couples, you have a better chance of getting personal service too.

The size matters

Although the baker that you have selected will be helping you with a size that is appropriate for your guest list, you may also want to consider a few other things.

A larger cake style is more impressive in pictures at the cake-cutting ceremony. You may want to choose separate tiers or just multiple ones to give the cake a better height so it's not hiding behind you and your spouse.

The size is also a consideration when choosing the flavor. One of the newer trends is to have particular flavours for each tier. So if you want to have more flavours, you're going to need more tiers, and an overall larger cake.

And don't forget to save the top tier for you and your spouse to eat on your first anniversary. It's a really a sweet tradition.

A different idea

If you're still interested in having multiple flavors, but not a larger cake, you can try separate cakes for each table. Some couples have opted for this as they can provide different flavors, but also guests may move from table to table to try other flavors"and in so doing, create more conversations and relative interaction.

Your wedding cake can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. If your budget is a concern, then you may want to keep in mind that at the end of the night, you will be eating it and that no one will worry about how expensive it was.
