Every bride has a vision for her perfect wedding, down to the perfect wedding cake design. Your cake should be a personal expression of your special day, and the baker you choose should aim to make your dream a reality, using the highest quality ingredients and a highly trained staff to bring your vision to life.
Selecting a Baker
Stop by local bakeries such as the Pennsylvania Bakery, Couture Cakery, and Desserts Etc., by Hershey Pantry Bakery to schedule a complimentary cake tasting and consultation to ensure your wedding cake will be a delicious and beautiful memory that your guests will talk about for years to come. Take advantage of all food tastings. Go with your gut and choose the cake you deem the tastiest, but also factor in the bakery’s efficiency and professionalism (returning your calls/emails, being flexible with your needs, etc). Know that wedding cakes are typically priced by the slice, depending on the style, ingredients, size, and embellishments.
While classic tiered cakes decorated with fresh flowers and toppers are never out of style there are lots of ways to freshen up tradition or even stray from it entirely, while still serving a wedding cake that is timeless, delicious, and uniquely you.
The look and feel of your sweet treat should match the rest of your wedding day. If you have a uniquely sweet and personal idea, your baker can who can bring your vision to life.
Whether your wedding is better suited to a naked cake with exposed layers of buttercream or a fully-frosted tower of elegance, the classic tiered shape can adapt to a myriad of styles.
Everything from ruffles to glimmering metallic luster to colorful, illustrative designs are popular nowadays. Painted or fondant monogramming and lace details are also a fresh, elegant way to go.
A lone tiered cake can be a stunner; however, there are lots of ways to feature your dessert table as décor. Instead of just one large cake, consider a few smaller tiered cakes displayed at staggered heights, or one spotlight cake surrounded by cupcakes. You can even place a small cake at the center of each dinner table so that dessert can double as a centerpiece.
