The wedding cake is the main highlight and a symbol of sweet family life. This sweet dish is chosen with the same care as a wedding dress. Here are our tips and tricks on how to choose the best possible wedding cake and some ideas of cakes you would definitely enjoy.
Each pair of newlyweds seeks to think through all the details in preparation for the most important celebration. All questions are resolved in advance, a few months before the wedding. This also applies to the selection of desserts among the most beautiful and delicious wedding cakes. It is necessary to find in advance a professional pastry chef who has extensive experience in the manufacture of pastries as well as who is ready to provide the catalog of their most beautiful and unusual cakes.
Among all this beauty, you need to choose the dessert that will fit the style of your wedding and match your taste preferences. It is also important that the cake is liked not only by you but also by the guests, so try to avoid very exotic additives in the filling of the cake. The most delicious cakes are made with the addition of the maximum amount of natural flavors, and colors. For the filling use fresh fruits and berries, as well as dark or milk chocolate. Nuts and dried fruits give a pleasant taste to the dessert. When you have chosen the filling for the cake, you can safely move on to its decor.
If you have already decided that you want to buy a truly luxurious wedding cake, you should consider a few important points:
1. Financial aspect
Be prepared for the fact that you will most likely have to spend a large amount of money if you need a big and stylish dessert. If your funds are limited, try to find a way to reduce the cost of the cake – you can make the size smaller by removing one tier, or either reduce the number of decorations.
Your cake should fit into your wedding style and match your color choices. Try to pick your wedding cake in similar colors to the whole scheme.
No matter how beautiful your wedding cake is, first of all, it should be fresh and of high quality. All tiers should be well bonded to each other, and the cream should carefully cover the cakes. The decorations should also be made of quality materials and look neat and beautiful.
How about the filling?
Most often cakes are made on the basis of biscuit cakes since it is not only simple and tasty but also convenient for creating any compositions. The cream can have any flavor from a variety of different choices such as vanilla, chocolate, fruity and etc.
Many pastry chefs prefer souffle cakes. Such desserts are light and airy, and with adding natural dyes, the souffle glaze can be turned into any color. Yogurt cakes will cost a little more because of the presence of a large number of natural ingredients. In addition, with the help of marzipan, you can make the most beautiful decorations for your wedding cake. Marzipan is one of the main ingredients in creating sugar paste, which can be wrapped around any cakes, making the texture smooth and elegant.
If you choose to have a marzipan cake, you should not add berries or fruits since it might spoil the sugar paste. The filling for the cake can be selected on the basis of whipped cream with sugar. Thanks to marzipan, you can make beautiful cakes with all sorts of figures. Any sweet tooth will definitely appreciate such a flavor!
