Getting married is one of the most important steps a couple can take together, and the wedding day is often filled with joyous, special moments for the bride and groom, including the wedding cake ceremony. This traditional event occurs at the wedding reception, as the groom invites his bride to cut the cake with him. Wedding cakes are traditionally layered cakes, commonly with five or six layer designs. They often have hard marzipan frosting and are decorated in white and other wedding colors. Ordering the wedding cake by choosing from a wealth of options and samples is often a day trip for the bride and her mother or fiancé. In this free wedding cake design video series, professional cake designer Melissa Maggiore teaches explains how to design a wedding cake. Maggiore discusses different wedding themes and how they change cake options. She offers suggestions for garden, classical and polka dot wedding cake themes, including choosing flavors, design elements and final details. Maggiore also explores the process of designing a wedding cake, including whom to bring to the appointment, what steps to follow and how to order and pay for the cake.

How To Choose Your Wedding Cake

One of my favorite parts about the wedding, is the cake. Over time many things have changed with weddings, but one thing that stays the same, there is always a beautiful cake. The wedding cake is a big part of the wedding, and something 'everyone" remembers. So when deciding on which cake is right for your perfect day, there are many factors to take into consideration.




When is your wedding?

The date and location of your wedding is crucial when choosing the cake. For example if you plan on having your wedding in the summer at a hot location, things like mousse, or even ice cream cake might be out of the question Ask your baker what types of cake are in "season"


How big will the cake be?

Wedding cakes can come in all shapes and sizes. Traditional cakes which have several tiers are normally a great choice, and one your guests will remember. Depending on how many guests you have your options are limitless. Of course the biggest factor in deciding how large your wedding cake should be, is knowing how man guests you will have. The following website gives a great reference on how large your cake should be.


What's your flavor?

Depending on the style of the cake, you have many different options. If the cake is multiple tiers, many people are choosing to have several different kinds of cake. Each level can be different, offering something for everyone. With wedding almost anything goes when it comes to the cake.


What kind of Icing?

Traditionally icing has been white or a light cream color. However today, many are matching their icing color with the overall theme of the wedding.. The actually icing can be a simple sugar and flour recipe, or even a rich cream cheese icing. There are many great icing ideas online which are sure to please even the most picky guests.



Decorating a cake is only limited by your imagination. Some couples design the cake around the décor or theme of the wedding. While others give the cake a unique look, with crazy and outrageous decorations which define who they are. Most Depend on what you need, bakers decorate cakes with the look of lace, embroidery appliqué or elegant drapes or swag.

Your wedding cake should be as individual as you. The worst thing you can do when choosing a cake is just "settling." Shop around a bit, decided on the cake, style and decorations, and find a baker who is willing to accommodate you. Many couples even order their cakes as much as 6 months ahead of time to insure they get what they want.
