Wedding cakes can be the symbol of unity and the beginning of
fun at a wedding reception. Images of a bride and groom smashing
a piece in to each otherís face are not necessary.
One of the easiest ways to pick a wedding
cake is to go to your local bakery. Better yet, you can go to
the bakery in the town where you will be married. When you go
with an out-of-town wedding cake, you may not be able to access
them quickly in an emergency.
Being close to the bakery
helps you if you have any questions or concerns as the wedding
gets nearer. You may want to choose a larger style or a smaller
one, depending on the responses to your invitations. In fact,
smaller bakeries can be more flexible than the larger, more
Since you wonít be competing with
hundreds of other couples, you have a better chance of getting
personal service too.

cake a better height so itís not hiding behind you and your
The size is also a consideration when choosing
the flavor. One of the newer trends is to have particular
flavours for each tier. So if you want to have more flavours,
youíre going to need more tiers, and an overall larger cake.
And donít forget to save the top tier for you and your spouse to
eat on your first anniversary. Itís a really a sweet tradition.
A different idea
If youíre still interested in having
multiple flavors, but not a larger cake, you can try separate
cakes for each table. Some couples have opted for this as they
can provide different flavors, but also guests may move from
table to table to try other flavorsóand in so doing, create more
conversations and relative interaction.
Your wedding cake can be as simple or as elaborate as you
choose. If your budget is a concern, then you may want to keep
in mind that at the end of the night, you will be eating it and
that no one will worry about how expensive it was.
