At MMCookies we believe in that if you are reading this post, you have a wedding coming up. Congratulations! While we all know that planning a wedding it is one of the most special and rewarding times in your life there are many decisions to be made throughout your planning journey and we are here to help make one of them a little bit easier to choose your perfect wedding cake.
Wedding cakes come in all shapes, sizes, and flavours, so we see how this decision could be a bit overwhelming. Keep reading to find four simple steps to get you on the right path to choosing the best cake option for your special day…
What Flavours Will You Have?
Let your taste buds do the talking! Is your favourite flavour decadent chocolate or sour raspberry? Do you prefer buttercream filling or something fruity? Some couples opt for one flavour while others like a mixture. The flavour combinations may seem endless, but the most important thing to remember is to go with what you and your future hubby love. We recommend scheduling a taste test with whoever will be creating your dream cake. Not only will taste-testing help to narrow down your options, but it will be a fun date as well!
Icing On Your Beautiful Wedding Cake
Similar to choosing a flavour and filling for your cake, you have options when it comes to frosting as well. Traditional buttercream is soft, and is perfect for more simple wedding cakes. Fondant on the other hand is favoured for its ability to be moulded into beautiful designs with a sleek finish. While both definitely have their advantages, it boils down to what your vision is for your wedding cake. Want to skip the icing decision altogether the Naked wedding cake skips the outer layer of frosting and is only iced in between tiers.
Top Off Your Couture Wedding Cake
This is an area where you can really let your personality shine! Cake toppers come in all shapes and sizes and essentially represent who you are as a couple. We’ve all seen the traditional bride and groom figurines on top of wedding cakes, but consider using your personal monogram or even something that fits your wedding theme and colours.
Handmade sugar flowers or fresh flowers or event fruit garnishes make for gorgeous wedding cake décor as well!
Final Advice On Choosing Your Beautiful Couture Wedding Cake!
The best wedding cake advice (or wedding advice in general!) that anyone can give to you is to remember to choose something that you will love. Your wedding is all about you and your husband and what you two enjoy as a couple. Try not to stress, have fun, and make your wedding a day that you’ll never forget.
We would love to hear from you before Choosing Your Cake so we can make your Beautiful Couture Wedding Cake a reality!
