Cakes are an integral part of any wedding. Amidst all the decorations and food and celebrations, your wedding cake is the focal point. A beautifully designed wedding cake – whether in traditional design or avant-garde decorations – can make your big day truly memorable.
The Importance of Wedding Cakes
A wedding cake is an intrinsic part of the entire wedding ceremony and has traditional significance attached to it. Traditionally, the groom and the bride cut the cake together and feed each other the first slice.
It signifies their union and undying commitment to each other through the ups and downs of their married life. The cake is then cut and served to the wedding guests along with champagne.
Choosing a Flavour
Wedding cakes have come a long way from the simple fruit cakes of yore to designer cakes of modern times. With bakers and master cake designers experimenting and creating new flavor combination, you are really spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a wedding cake flavor.
Wedding cakes are usually white to signify purity, innocence and positivity.
However, today’s designer cakes can be as elaborate and colourful as you prefer. You can opt for a tier-cake with colour combinations or keep it white with exotic decorations that guests will just keep staring at.
