Planning a wedding can take a lot out of a bride to be, especially when it comes to the odds and ends, one of them being your wedding cake. Many brides make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to apply the more excellent details of the cake, but this can become a danger zone if you wait till the end to start planning. This may seem overwhelming at first, but with these few tips and tricks, designing your very own wedding cake brings out the fun and creative side to planning. One of the many perks for designing your wedding cake is the sampling of the many delicious flavours of cake. This is one of the very first things you do to start the planning process. Select your favourite bakery and make an appointment for you and your groom to go in for a sampling date.
For our more bold couples, choose a few flavours to mix or layer the cake with several different flavours to add a unique surprise for your guests. For our more laid back couples, decide between one or two flavours at the most to start the building process of your cake.
Once this step is done, it is time to get creative! One of the best things you can plan on doing is viewing fun photo galleries of cake designs that inspire you both. This is a great way to get an idea of what you are looking for. Just narrow down the colour selection by matching them carefully to your wedding colours, decide on how many tiers you both want to have, and get a good idea of personal things you and your fiance like to share.
Bring this into your baker and piece together the elements to match to the theme of your wedding. Your professional baker will be able to guide you along the way as well to bring out the absolute best features in your cake design. The best part of designing your wedding cake is adding in your personal touches. Incorporate memories you both have shared over the years together and add them to your cake.
Add a fun cake topper to symbolize your relationship or add a few design pieces throughout your cake design to tell your story. Every cake has a story and the best part of getting to design your cake is the ability to tell what you two share all in one piece. After choosing your favourite flavours, ideal design, and adding personal touches, you can book your cake in advance and cross it off your never-ending to do list!
Always remember to make your cake memorable not only you both but for your guests as well. Get creative and inspired! You only get married once, so why not go all out and let your imagination come to life?
