Follow me and I will help you with every step in choosing the right cake. You will develop a feeling of joy and relief, as you should, while preparing for your wedding. I promise you that.

Choose your wedding cake only after you have decided on your gown, the bridesmaid dresses, the reception site, the theme, colors and anything else that could have an effect on which cake you choose.

You could select a photo of a cake you love first and then try to match everything else to that. However, that approach will likely be much harder. After all once you cut and serve the cake everything else you have chosen to match it will still be there but the cake is just a memory. Couples only fool themselves if they think guests only care about the cake’s taste and the decorating and design of a wedding cake. Other than the bride’s beautiful dress and glowing face nothing says wedding like a wonderfully decorated and designed wedding cake.

Unique wedding cake inspiration may come from looking at pictures of wedding cake designs. You may find a photo that will help you design the wedding cake of your dreams to enhance your reception.

There are several approaches one can take in choosing wedding cake designs, from traditional cream or white icing in classical designs to totally modern artistic colorful masterpieces. Nowadays anything goes.

The wedding cakes we see today are very different than in the past. Designs have evolved to suit the taste of today’s couples. More and more couples are choosing cupcake towers for the wedding. This is one of the newest and original wedding cake ideas ever.

Another wedding cake style that is gaining in popularity is the miniature cake. Traditional round wedding cakes may soon fade out since all sorts of other shapes are becoming very popular. Square, oval, heart, octagon and other shapes are gaining in popularity. However some couples still prefer traditional round cakes and flavors like cheesecake for the wedding cakes.

Whatever shape or flavor you choose, your wedding cake, to your friends and family will always symbolize love, the sweetness of life, prosperity and fertility.

Here are some questions to ask yourself when deciding your wedding cake design. How much can you spend on the cake? Will the cake be the only dessert? How big of a cake will you need? Not every guest will want cake if you offer other desserts or a meal.

Will a particular cake fit your reception decorating scheme and menu? Today’s cake designers offer an almost endless variety of cake styles, decorating, choice of construction, flavors, icing and decorations.

How many tiers do you want, in what colors? Do you want a custom made, one of a kind cake topper? Do you as a couple have a shared passion, job or hobby? Make your cake topper reflect that interest. You can get anything from animal to motorcycle cake toppers.
