Oftentimes, choosing a wedding cake feels like checking off yet another box on your wedding to-do list. (Bouquet? Check! Dress? Check! Cake? Check!) But, today, it doesn’t have to be that way. Rather than ordering some traditional cake for ceremonial purposes, you now have the option to treat it as both a design element and a delicious menu item. So, basically, it’s time to get creative!
In terms of the cake’s design, it’s often smart to start by thinking about your venue. The venue sets the scene for the rest of your wedding and also affects what material the cake can be made of (fondant can be hard in direct sunlight, et cetera). Plus, we think it’s fun to have the wedding cake match the venue’s aesthetic and the rest of the day’s design details. So, if you’re into that idea as well, we suggest you start by imagining what exactly you’re looking for (five tiers, a single tier, etc.) and thinking about design elements you like (“drip” elements, fresh flowers, geometric designs).
