Choosing Your Wedding Cake

According to tradition, choosing a wedding cake is bride’s responsibility, but it is a nice idea to involve groom in the process of tasting. Even though according to tradition it should be a classical fruit cake, nowadays couples can pick any flavour they prefer.

Choosing a cake-maker is a key decision, so we suggest that you select a number of candidates and arrange meetings with them. Make sure to see the photos of their work and taste some of the flavours, because you want your cake to look spectacular and taste delicious.

Decision on how big the cake should be depends on the number of guests. The small three-tiered 22 cm cake can feed up to 50 guests, standard four-tiered 36 cm cake will be enough for 150 people, and if you have between 200 and 300 guests you can go with 50 cm cake made from six tiers.

There are many different flavours available, and you can choose one of the most popular options such as mouth-watering chocolate mud which is great for winter weddings, carrot, banana, coffee and tiramisu that are suitable for any season and orange and poppyseed which is a refreshing choice for summer weddings.

You can also pick one of the delicious wedding cake alternatives such as crocquembouche cake or cupcake tower which can look just as stunning as traditional cake.
