Choosing The Perfect Wedding Cake

When it comes to your wedding, you want to make sure everything is perfect. From the venue to the clothes that you are wearing, to the people involved in your wedding party - everything has to be just right. The same goes for your wedding cake - it is such a massive part of your big day that it needs to be exactly how you want it, but how do you choose the perfect wedding cake when there is so much choice out there?

Choosing the right people to make it, is always something that should be considered first - perhaps choose a local company that has excellent feedback like the Perfect Pudding Company who make amazing wedding cakes in Essex and you know will deliver upon what you want. But once you have chosen the right people to make your wedding cake, then you need to decide exactly what you want. So how can you do this?

Think About Your Wedding Theme

Are you going for a traditional theme? If so, perhaps the traditional fruit cake option is the one for you. If your theme is tea party-esque, perhaps some cupcakes in a tower would be the perfect cake option for you. If you are keeping to a theme then it makes sense to keep the cake according to the theme also. If you are having a non-traditional wedding then let your imagination go wild!

Think About Flavours

Something that you really need to consider is the flavours that you both like. If neither of you likes a traditional iced fruit wedding cake then there is no point having one of those if neither of you will enjoy it - it is your wedding day after all. You may choose to go for chocolate or a vanilla sponge, red velvet, lemon or perhaps a carrot cake to be a little different. You could even go completely obscure and have a cheese tower cake instead - a savoury delight.

Size Matters

When thinking about your cake, it is important to remember that the size of it matters - after all, you will be wanting each guest to sample some for themselves. Whilst a wedding cake with a few tiers may go round a few hundred guests, a cupcake tower may be better suited to a wedding with a smaller amount of guests so everyone can enjoy the cakes.

Do what you want

At the end of the day, your wedding is about you and your partner. It is so important to remember this and to choose what you want and not what other people think you should have.

It is okay to take advice but don't be afraid to go with your gut instinct and your preferences. Whether you want a many-tiered fruit cake or a one-tiered chocolate cake, whether you want cupcakes or a cheese tower, whether you want something completely obscure or want to keep to traditions, it is all about what you as a couple want. As long as you are both happy, then that is always going to be the perfect wedding cake for you.

  1. Wedding planning is so much fun. There is almost too much choice though. You definitely need to go with your gut instinct.

  2. We found choosing just a single flavour too hard, so went for a couple!

  3. I loved choosing my wedding cake and what we had was quite modern but nowadays there is so much more variety and you can buy loads of different cakes. Mich x
