You’ve carefully selected a theme and a color palette for your big day, and your wedding cake should be part of that seamless wedding aesthetic. Choose a cake that’s compatible with the style of the venue, the season, the flower arrangements, or the menu. The cake should be part of the wedding, not a glaring sideshow.
Tradition and in general, classic option for a wedding cake, has three tiers but there are endless choices when it comes to choosing what dessert to serve at your wedding.
Buttercream or fondant? Buttercream is often much more delicious. But if you love the smooth, almost surreal-like look of fondant, consider meringue-based buttercreams under fondant. Fondant has a much more candy-like flavor than rich and soft buttercream. Many couples find the flavor of hard, candy-like fondant icing to be less pleasant than buttercream. Be sure to try both options at your cake tasting and discuss with your cake baker which option is best for you!
The wedding cake flavors for a decade have been vanilla, but here is some of my favorite flavor
Almond cake with Almond cream and White chocolate buttercream.
Champagne cake with strawberry mousse and Champagne Buttercream.
Cutting the cake.
Cutting the cake is usually cut toward the end of dinner, just before dancing begins, and is the last «official» event of the evening. The hand of the groom is placed over the hand of the bride when cutting the cake to symbolize his support for her and her promise to take care of him and their family. When the bride and groom take pieces of cake and feed them to each other, once again, they are showing they have given their all to the other symbolizes their commitment to providing for each other as one flesh.
