Personalise Your Wedding Cake
Your wedding. It’s your big day and it’s your time to shine. All eyes are on you and you want everything to be absolutely perfect. To make your wedding cake as memorable as your wedding itself, you can consider adding a little personal touch to the cake design and presentation.
Many bakeries are able to send photos off to be printed on sugar. These photos can be used as your wedding topper or you can incorporate pictures of yourself and your groom on the top tier, the second tier can have a photo of the bride’s parents and the base tier can feature a photo of the groom’s parents. This will bring the whole family together and will be very thoughtful of you on your wedding day.
Instead of one huge cake, many couples have found that smaller cakes in a variety of designs and flavours are excellent centrepieces and each can be decorated and personalised. The bride can have a personalised cake in her choice of flavour and design, the groom can have his own and then they can have a third cake that incorporates the designs of both cakes. You can also do a cutting of each cake and say hello to the friends and family at that table and take a quick group photo. Then all of the guests can mingle and try the different cake flavours.
Fresh flowers have become increasingly popular over the past few years. Cakes are being dressed in flowers that match the wedding bouquets and arrangements with fresh flowers or flowers made of sugar. Consider edible flowers for a real treat.
Remember that you don’t have to go with a white or yellow cake. It is your day and if you are a chocoholic, by all means go for chocolate! You can also consider marble cakes, pound cakes, ice-cream cakes, mousse cakes, angel food cakes and even coffee cakes.
The dessert table is an excellent option if you are serving a very rich cake. Offer a spread of cookies, fruit, yogurt, ice cream, chocolates and dessert cheeses. This is also good for your guests who might be watching their figure or prefer something not so rich.
Go for colour! Your cake doesn’t have to be white! Some of the most beautiful cakes are made of pale yellows or robin egg blue. Choose a colour in your dress that is subtle and add it to your cake. Or if you want to be extravagant, go all out for the red cake.
Wedding Cake Toppers
A very memorable touch to a wedding cake is featuring your new monogram. This is an excellent way to get you used to seeing your initials together and you can display them to your new family with pride on your cake. Consider having it weaved into an intricate china pattern or other design. You can even have them made out of chocolate and placed as a cake topper.
Do you both love to travel? Play sports? Love your pets? Cute little personalised cake toppers can bring together a couple with the things you love. If your wedding is somewhat casual, you can have a bride and groom figurine wearing vacation clothes or perhaps your dog and cat.
Your ideas are endless when it comes to personalizing your wedding cake. Take a moment to think it through and discuss it with your significant other. When you are ready to go to the baker, be sure to bring any photos or drawings that you may have for the baker to work off of.
