Planning Your Reception / Cakes & Confectionery

The art of cake making has evolved to offer today's bride and groom an exciting array of options when it comes to this most delicious offering. You will want to take your time to explore all the options and enjoy lots of cake tastings ... yes please! Remember too, to coordinate your cake with your wedding theme and colours.

Today's options include: a waffle cake, pancake cake, layered meringue cake, cheese cake, donut cake, gingerbread cake, cake pops, cannoli cake, macaroons, ice cream cake, lattice pie, a naked cake, and the list goes on. You will also want to consider having a dessert buffet, and the possibility of cakes or confectionery as your bomboniere.
