Wedding Cake Selection
Speaking as a wedding planner it is trendy to see donuts, cookies and cupcakes served at weddings the last couple years.
Speaking as a wedding guest, I look forward to a wonderfully delicious piece of wedding cake. Of course we go to support the bride and groom first but cake is a close second!
There are few things we appreciate more than a decadent wedding cake—both in taste and style. Dessert trends come and go, but nothing takes the place of a delicious cake that satisfies more than one of your senses.
The cake is a perfect way to incorporate your overall wedding design into your special day. From extravagant to classic design and everything in between, you and your baker can get so creative to make something truly special
Take into account the season of the year in determining cake flavors. We have all had an amazing berry in the summer and a less then perfect berry in the off season. Consider these types of factors when determining any parts of your meny
