It’s a key moment of a wedding celebration and a real crowd pleaser. These Wedding Cake Tips from Ballara Receptions will help make it special.
Whether you are ordering a designer creation or it’s your grandmother’s labour of love, there’s Wedding Cake Tips that apply to any recipe. Read on and choose what’s right for you.
Theme your cake to your wedding.
It’s not only a delicious dessert, it’s also a piece of art and a key decoration at your reception. If you have a rustic theme, opt for a buttercream or naked icing, decorated with native foliage and flowers, touches of hessian and string.
Or maybe you are going for a luxe modern feel with marble accents – if you’ve got an awesome cake decorator this can all be incorporated into your design.
Maybe the groom has begged for a superhero theme or lego cake or you have a Disney theme!
Think about the season you are getting married in
Wedding Cake Tips for winter weddings include using warmer colours and decorating with berries, pine cones and chocolate.
While a spring wedding might be a burst of colour and blooms.
Choose a flavour that will appeal to many.
There are so many different cake flavours out there today but we find that crowd favourites like chocolate, vanilla and red velvet, all go down a treat! Choose a cake maker based on recommendations or great reviews. Check out their showrooms and online profiles so you can see their work first hand, and be sure to ask about tasting boxes to help you select your flavour!
It’s the most expensive cake you’ll ever buy so you want it to be amazing.
White is the new white
There’s no such thing as boring white when it comes to cakes. White is a universally loved colour for a wedding and one that fits with almost any theme. What it lacks in colour vibrancy can be well and truly made up for in creativity and piping skills. Intricate patterns, embellishments and well-placed decorations will create a cake of elegant beauty.
But maybe you do have a colour scheme and you can definitely incorporate it into your cake too!
If cake just isn’t your thing, there are alternatives. Cupcake towers are becoming increasingly popular, along with donut walls, croquembouche, or even macarons can be just as delicious and interesting to serve at your wedding. Presentation is really key if you are trying something a little bit novel for your wedding.
