Wrapping Up the Big Day... with Cake!

by Samantha Delahanty

Your wedding cake should reflect your wedding and your personal liking.  Since it marks the end of your wedding day, you should make sure that it wraps the entire day together as well.  There are many things that should be considered when choosing your wedding cake.  Making sure you taste the cake, it is in your price range, and reflects your wedding style are all very important things to consider when looking for and finding your perfect wedding cake.  Some wedding cake trends that have been popular over the past couple of years definitely have shied away from the traditional type of wedding cake. 

One wedding cake style that has been popular is called the “Naked Cake.”  This means that instead of completely covering the entire cake in icing, only part of the cake is iced or it isn’t iced at all.  This is a much lighter version of a wedding cake.

Another type of wedding cake that has been trending over the past couple of years is a monogrammed wedding cake.  This creates a more personalized wedding cake.  It adds something special for the bride and groom personally, it is the first time their last initial is the same and stands for the same name.

Another popular wedding cake trend is having it painted.  This is another way to personalize your cake.  You can have your cake designer paint your cake to match your wedding theme and colors.  It makes a very unique cake that everyone will love!
