There’s no need to feel overwhelmed because despite what you may have ahead of you, you can get through all of it with flying colors, as long as you have people committed to helping you around! We certainly are dedicated to presenting you with the cake of your dreams, and in this blog, we have mentioned all the various details you need to consider while choosing from the best wedding cake designs available today.
What to Keep in Mind when Choosing Custom Wedding Cakes
Weddings cakes are entirely customizable, from the cake flavor and icing in between the layers to the type of coating around it, the toppings and the toppers (bride and groom, congratulatory banner, etc.). Some people like the perfect finish that fondant gives while those who don’t like how fondant tastes choose buttercream icing as an alternative. Better yet, there are those who ditch the frosting altogether and opt for a naked or semi-naked cake instead!
To help you choose, wedding cake makers and custom cake shops near me offer a consulting and cake tasting session. The goal here is to discuss your likes and how to incorporate them into the wedding cake, down to your favorite flavors and the number of guests who need to be served at the wedding. This is accompanied by serving you samples of all the delicious cake flavors that you can choose from.
How to Ensure You Get the Best Affordable Wedding Cakes
Here, we have tried to explain the process of selecting the appropriate wedding cake by considering the most important factors that can affect your decision.
Size of Custom Wedding Cakes
To pick the right size for your wedding cake, you must have a proper idea of how many guests you will be hosting at the reception. The more the number of people, the more tiers the cake will have, and each tier, based on its dimension, offers a fixed number of servings. Cakes are mainly either round or square in shape, and square-shaped cakes have more servings per layer.
The size will also depend on whether or not you want to have a dessert table along with the wedding cake. The more variety or quantity or desserts such as cake pops, macarons, cupcakes, etc. that you choose to have served, the lesser amount of wedding cake you will need. If you assume at least one cupcake or a slice of cake per guest, on the basis of which you can figure how many servings you will need of dessert at the wedding.
Flavors to Choose in the Wedding Cake
You can choose absolutely any flavor from the ones that the cake shop offers. In fact, you can have each tier customized to be entirely different in cake flavor and filling and each one will taste uniquely delicious, from the first slice to the very last crumb.
