In years gone by there weren’t many choices in terms of style and flavour of wedding cakes, and the old fruit cake was what you would get, guaranteed!! Things are so different nowadays and you can have almost anything your imagination can dream up, albeit if you choose the right cake specialist. We love that you can get creative and think out of the box when deciding on what you want for your cake.
If you’re a non-traditional bride who’s on the lookout for something different, then alternative wedding cakes might be perfect for you. Why settle for a traditional cake when you can choose something uniquely you!
Choosing your wedding cake should be one of the most enjoyable and delightful aspects of planning your special day. Any wedding cake designer worth his or her salt will be inspired by the personalities of the couple to create with passion and attention to detail a unique work of art that surpasses all expectations.
As a starting point you should have an idea of what you can afford, what the theme and colour scheme of your wedding will be, where the reception will be held and more or less how many guests you need to cater for.
Having established exactly what the budget allows, you can start thinking about the kind of cake designs that you would like. For inspiration you can use images, cakes you have seen at other weddings or even nature! Anything that you love can be your muse!
As far as your budget and the cost of your cake is concerned, there are various factors to take into consideration. For one, the more elaborate the design and the more intricate workmanship, the more expensive it will be. Nevertheless, a creative specialist will be able to suggest ways and means of how to save on the cost, but still have a cake that makes your guests gasp.
Naturally the ideal cake is not only breathtakingly beautiful, but it also tastes absolutely delicious!
