The Eye candy rival in the shape of a wedding cake is the only threat the bride has to contend with on her wedding day in looking good. Wedding cakes have become an essential decoration at wedding venues where guests still excite themselves over how splendid the wedding cake is. Choosing the right cake if done scrupulously is as easy as walking down the aisle.
Availability of cake decorators may be restricted at the bakery of your choice so be sure to check this out before finalizing any decisions on how you want your cake to look. An early chat with the cake baker to talk over the design and flavour is a wise move and should be done at least 6 months before the set date thus giving him/her plenty of time to create the perfect wedding cake. You may need to pay a deposit fee for reservation.
Wedding cakes have a flair for looking good but should also be scrumptious in taste for all guests dribbling at the mouth waiting for a slice of the action. The texture and flavour of the cake itself is important so when out shopping don't hesitate to ask for cake sample flavours. Some bakery shops will be only to willing to oblige.
Make sure to budget well for your cake as they can be costly depending on the design. Wedding cake prices range from $500 up to $2000. Expect to pay the cake decorator's fee on top of the cost of the cake itself. Don't forget to ask at the bakery do they do free deliveries. Let them know how many are attending the wedding ceremony. This will then give the baker a good idea on the size appropriate to fill everyone's belly. Most bakeries have a standard number of servings for each cake type.
Not only are flowers worn or hand held by the bride at the wedding they are also popular for decorating wedding cakes. Fresh or artificial whatever you choose as your chosen preference. Fresh flowers are beautiful and can be strongly scented so select carefully make sure minus free from chemicals. Consider sugar flowers an edible gum paste decoration that has wire/toothpicks on them also very tasty and on top giving you peace of mind where no one gets poisoned.
Summer weddings and cakes have to be carefully thought about when it comes to where the cake should be placed in the reception area. Keep out of the direct sunlight, heat and wedding cakes not a match made in heaven. Keep covered in case of flies. Never under no circumstances place your wedding cake near the dance floor because the boogie bopper may cause a lotta heartache. A steady table is a must for the cutting of the cake.
Wedding cakes are good to eat lovely to look at and will add beauty to your wedding. For the perfect wedding you always dreamed of be sure to budget wisely if you don't, excuse the pun (You can not have your cake and eat it).
