Planning a Wedding - Cake

One of the main parts of a wedding is the cutting of the cake. It will sit throughout your reception and all your guests will see it and watch both of you cut it, so it is important you consider the design of it.

Some couples opt for a traditional cake with icing and flowers but others are a little more adventurous with their choices. There are so many styles to choose from with lace, hombre colours or even bright sprinkles to not having a traditional style cake at all and going for mini wedding cakes, cupcakes or cheese boards.

Wedding cakes vary in price and it will depend on how many guests you need to feed, whether you are having fruit or sponge and the amount of decoration you require.

Fruit cakes last longer than sponge and it is traditional to keep the top tier to cut at your first child's christening. If going for sponge many couples choose to have different flavours on each tier. We had a sponge cake at our wedding and went for chocolate, traditional sponge and lemon and I have to say it was delicious. The only problem with the different flavours was that our guests wanted to try a piece of each so  there was none left at the end of the evening.
