This is the second of several posts about wedding cakes. Today we are featuring some of the wedding cakes submitted by you our brides. You will notice that there are some very elegant smaller wedding cakes as well. Again, use these cakes as ideas to create your cake.
Here are some important facts to remember when ordering your cake. The cost of a wedding cake depends on three factors: Quality of Ingredients, Labor & Detail Involved, and the Number of Guest to be served. With regard to flavors you have a wide selection – raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, or lemon. You can have one layer as a chocolate layer and then a different layer as vanilla. As you can see from the photos, details can make the difference. Some have elegant designs and others are very simply. A current trend is to use flowers as accents. For the more budget conscious order a smaller wedding cake plus a regular sheet cake, and have your venue hold the sheet cake in the back to be sliced and served to the guests. And finally, my suggestion is to order your cake at least three months ahead of your wedding date. Be sure to ask if delivery and installation is included. This is one job you really don’t want to tackle yourself.
