Mmmm cake! We all love this part of the wedding! There nothing more enjoyable than a decadent piece of wedding cake! Whether it’s chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, red velvet, our guests are sure to swoon over this classic wedding tradition.
Wedding cakes are starting to become much more unique, and almost a piece of artwork for the reception. The wedding cakes are often times being tied into the theme of the wedding, or showing off who the bride and groom are as a couple. When our parents tied the knot there was probably a simple tiered vanilla or chocolate cake with a traditional couple wedding topper sitting on the top! Not to mention the frosting was often times a simple vanilla buttercream!
Wedding cakes now come in flavors from chocolate-almond cake with chocolate ganache, to coconut cake and lime buttercream. How does hazelnut-almond cake with raspberries and chocolate ganache, or lemon cake with vanilla buttercream sound? Sounds pretty tasty to me! Along with wedding flavors changing, cake toppers are also beginning to get more unique. Often times couples are putting wedding toppers that reflect who they are such as monograms, flowers, beautiful sayings, and even sports figures!
So when thinking of ways to customize your wedding, don’t overlook this classic aspect of the wedding!
