Designing The Wedding Cake: Marzipan People And Tiers Of Yum
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Some people go to a wedding to wish the bride and groom well. Some go to try to hookup with the lonely bridesmaids. And some people have their priorities firmly in hand and go for the wedding cake! When you are the happy couple, part of your pre-wedding job will be to design the wedding cake. For this, you either need a professional or a really ambitious friend.

The size of the wedding cake will depend largely on the number of guests that are invited. Remember that tradition calls for the top layer of the cake to be saved in a freezer for the bride and groom to eat on their first anniversary, so it will not count toward the technical “cake count”. This is where using a professional cake baker will come in handy, because they will know exactly how big a cake should be.

When you start designing the wedding cake keep a few things in mind:

1. Your cake should reflect your wedding’s colors, as well as fit in the style and tone of the affair. If your wedding was a formal ceremony, the cake should be of a more formal style as well.

2. Whether you choose to use a plastic bride and groom or other wedding cake topper is ultimately up to you. Suggestions by the designer or baker are appreciated but not law. If you have always loathed them, then forgo the plastic folk.

3. Your cake baker should show you a portfolio of her work as well as any customer testimonials that she might have. Check around with other professionals in the wedding industry or with friends and family and see if anyone has heard anything about this particular baker.

4. You should be brought in for tasting before you make the final cake order. You should be getting tastes of different cakes, fillings and icing options. Make sure that both bride and groom are present for this tasting and get to have input into flavors and other options.

5. Consider having the cake alternate layer flavors, or have a variety. That way everybody is pleased, the cake still looks beautiful and there is no complaining that it was only chocolate or only white cake.

Make sure that designing the cake is as stress-free as possible- allow the baker to gently guide you, but do not be intimidated into allowing someone else make your decision for you. Remember, that will be you cutting that cake as man and wife, and then playfully shoving it into each other’s faces.
