After all this time stressing and budgeting, it's time for a really sweet part of your wedding planning experience! (We couldn't help the pun.)
There are several key factors that you want to take into account when choosing your cake and cake designer.
You should order your cake six months in advance of the wedding, but don't get too antsy. Your cake style should mirror your wedding theme or style and should be chosen after you have a reception site selected. Speak to a baker in Milton who understands the special needs involved in a wedding cake plan, and has experience in wedding desserts.
Perhaps you've dreamed of a pristine white cake, or maybe you have something a little more unique in mind? Look through magazines and images for inspiration. See what catches your eye and ties in well with your theme.
A multitier cake is traditional for weddings. Do you prefer round, or square layers, or another shape altogether? If you choose a non-circular shape, do you want sharp structure or rounded corners?
Your tiers may also be stacked solid, bottom-to-top, or they may be separated by elegant pillars which can contribute to an elegant, grand look. When speaking to your Milton wedding cake designer, try to stay open to suggestions that will ensure the design you're imagining is achievable in reality.
Every baker will offer an array of flavours and fillings for you to taste and choose from. These range from tried and true vanilla to some really wild tastes. The only way you'll be able to make that decision is with taste tests.
A less traditional option is to opt for a smaller cake for the cutting, and then tiers of cupcakes, pastries or other desserts on tiers below. Cupcake wedding cakes have grown from celebrity trend to widely accepted alternative in the past several years and can be a fun way to incorporate multiple flavours. There are several Milton wedding cupcake shops that have experience creating these sorts of sweet wedding treats.
