I guess everyone would agree with me when I say that the wedding cake plays a very crucial role in a wedding. Therefore, selecting a cake for the wedding is a huge responsibility. But, this is something that you procrastinate until the last minute. And in those last moments, with the pe-wedding jitters, an increase of workload, formalities and rituals, choosing the wedding cake seems nearly impossible due to which you either pass on the responsibility to someone else or choose any cake just for the sake of it.
Now this is not how you plan a perfect wedding, just like any other wedding preparation choosing of a wedding cake also needs to be started at least 2-3 months before the wedding, giving the bride and groom ample amount of time to select the perfect cake for their special day. Now this is a task that seems to be very simple but later when you start the process, you realise how complicating and confusing choosing a wedding cake can be.
In order to choose the perfect cake for your dream wedding, there are a few simple guidelines that you need to follow-
1. APPEALING APPEARANCE
The flavour of the cake, it’s texture, taste, everything is important but the main thing to keep in mind is the appearance of the cake. If the cake doesn’t look tempting enough, people might skip it thinking it might not taste good. Therefore, decoration of the cake has to be keenly focused on.
2. THEMED CAKES
Even though it is not a compulsion to have a wedding themed cake, it does make the day more special and memorable. A cake with toppers of the bride and the groom makes the cake look elegant and romantic at the same time.
3. TIERED CAKES
The wedding cakes are usually preferred as a tiered cake. The tiered cakes somehow always seem to look elegant and classy. In a practical sense, it is an advantage as it helps in having more quantity of the cake in less space so that every guest can get a taste of it.
4. TYPE OF FROSTING
Many people don’t tend to think about this aspect of the cake much and choose any kind f frosting. But frostings like buttercream, icing, etc. have the danger of getting ruined as they are comparatively very delicate. Whereas, in the case of fondant, it not only gives a polished and classy look to the cake, it is also easy to handle.
One of the crucial tasks regarding the wedding cake is to make sure that it reaches the venue safe and sound. Any mistake while bringing the cake might ruin it completely, which cannot be afforded. Therefore, this is work that needs to be taken very seriously and done perfectly.
These are a few things that need to be kept in mind while ordering a wedding cake. While all these are very important, the most important thing is that the cake should be of the choice of the bride and the groom. The wedding day is all about them both, right from the scratch, everything that has to do with the wedding should be according to the couple’s choice, including the cake.
