How to Choose a Wedding Cake

If you’re thinking about your wedding cake and don’t have any idea what to do, then you have come to the right place.  With so many choices available to you these days, it can be hard to decide just which cake is best!  Here are some of the best of the best wedding cakes that brides are choosing this year.

The Traditional Tiered Cake

A tiered wedding cake can be any where from 2 to 3 tiers, though most couples opt for only two or three tiers.  These traditional wedding cakes are a good choice as they fit in with almost any wedding.  Almost any flavor can be accommodated, and you can choose a number of different colors and icing styles that will match the tone and mood of your wedding.

The problem that a lot of modern brides have with this kind of cake that it may be just a bit too traditional.  If you’re looking for something completely unique and special, then you may want to consider a different type of wedding cake.

Cupcake Wedding Cake

A wedding cake made up of tiny cupcakes is becoming an increasingly popular choice of wedding cake.  Not only is it cute and unique, but every guest can have their very own piece of cake!  You can even make different cupcakes in different flavors to tailor to the tastes.  Each little wedding cake can be personalized with the monogram that you and your partner choose, or you can also place tiny cake toppers and cupcake gems on top of them as well.

The drawback to the cupcake wedding cake is that you cannot actually have a true cake cutting ceremony.  If you are going for that ultra traditional wedding and want this to be a part of your reception, then stick with a more traditional form of cake.

Cultural Cakes

A lot of cultures have their very own type of cake that would be appreciated by the family you invite along.  There is the Jamaican rum cake for those from the Caribbean, Mexican fruit cakes, Russian tea cakes and a number of other cakes that will help add that cultural element to your wedding.

The only drawback is that if the cake may be a bit outlandish and you have a lot of people attending who are not of your culture, they may not enjoy the cake.

Ice Cream Cakes

Try a new idea and purchase an ice cream cake for your wedding!  Most guests appreciate having a nice cool treat after a filling warm meal.  You can have ice cream cakes designed in almost any form now and include a number of different fillings.  A lot of cakeries now specialize in making special ice cream cakes for special occasions, such as weddings.

Before you run out and buy an ice cream cake, make sure that the reception venue has enough freezer space to hold the cake.  You will also have to ensure that the cake is served quickly once it is taken out of the freezer so that it isn’t melted by the time your guests have a chance to enjoy it.
