An amazing wedding cake is like the cherry on top in a wedding party. It is no doubt that the second thing the guests would look at in a wedding venue after the beautiful bride, is the amazing wedding cake. A wedding cake is more than just a cake. It is a symbol, a tradition, a decoration. The size of a wedding cake could show your wealth, prestige, or social status.
Of course everyone wants a perfect, amazing wedding cake to cut and share on D-day. But it comes with a cost, a big cost, because it is not cheap to order an amazing wedding cake even from a small cake and bakery shop around the corner. In order to make an amazing wedding cake, the baker and the cake decorator have to be extra careful and neat in doing their jobs, and of course they have to be able to project what you want in your wedding cake. Also one thing you should remember is that the wedding cake should match with the wedding concept as a whole.
Three Important Things of an Amazing Wedding Cake
The first important aspect of an Amazing Wedding Cake is the Design
The first thing on the list to think of in getting an amazing wedding cake, is the design. Is it going to be the simple white traditional three-tiered cake? How about the bride and groom figurines on top of the cake? And let’s not forget about the color and shape of the cake as well. But let’s all admit it, a simple white traditional three-tiered cake would not make an amazing wedding cake that makes everyone’s eyes pop and mouths wide in ‘awe’.
You should discuss and consult your dream wedding cake to the person in charge. Perhaps a wedding cake that projects a nice combination of the bride and the groom’s hobbies? Favorite places or color? You could design your wedding cake into literally everything. A castle in Venice, your lovely pets, an ocean full of sea creatures, a mermaid princess and a merman prince. Anything you could think of is able to be turned into an amazing wedding cake. A dummy like a doll or a picture, could help the projection of the amazing wedding cake to be as close as possible to the real thing.
Frosting is the second thing you need to get an amazing wedding cake
The next thing to get an amazing wedding cake is the frosting; buttercream, fondant, icing, or marzipan? Buttercream is the most common frosting to be used, but it could melt easily especially if you are holding the wedding outside. The sun, even the breeze of the wind have to be calculated first before putting a frosted wedding cake in the middle of a flower garden or even a beach. You would not want the weather to ruin your amazing wedding cake, would you?
Having unique and beautiful details will give you an amazing wedding cake
Little things like the patterns or swirls of the frosting, the garnishes around the cake like little edible flowers or pearls or glitter, the flavors, and the amount of tiers. They are all important details to watch out in an amazing wedding cake. Make sure you do not miss a single thing.
