A good wedding cake tastes as good on the inside as it looks on the outside. Period. End of story. Unfortunately, I think a lot of brides and grooms don’t actually care about the wedding cake. How it tastes, I mean. That’s okay, of course. I am an advocate of splurging on what you care about and scrimping on the things that don’t matter to you. However, wedding guests are presented with cake slices whether they want them or not, and wedding the cake is often the last hurrah of the reception.
So, if you want a memorable wedding, consider a good wedding cake.
A giant, six-tiered wedding cake from your country’s most sought after cake decorator is going to set you back. Luckily, there are other ways to come by a beautiful and tasty wedding cake. Perhaps you know someone with mad icing skillz. Maybe your local bakery makes beautiful small tiered cakes and sheet cakes. Or, you can try following the step-by-step instructions in wedding cake expert Dede Wilson’s guide, Wedding Cakes You Can Make: Designing, Baking, and Decorating the Perfect Wedding Cake.
Of course, you can also dare to be different. There is no rule stating that wedding cakes must be white, tiered, flowery, and bland. There are some pretty interesting recipes out there. Since who knows when I’ll get to have a wedding, I’m going to try out a few of these to give out as New Year’s gifts!
