The ‘cutting of the cake’ can be a key moment and one to savour as it is considered the first official act of the newly married couple together.
This moment, together with the couple’s kiss by the cake, is a wonderful opportunity for photographs, a special toast and even a meaningful piece of music.
The wedding cake therefore becomes a feature of the day and must be beautiful to look at as well as beautiful to taste.
When it comes to wedding cakes there are endless varieties, styles and flavours to choose from.
The Professional Caterer's pastry chef can create almost any cake for any style of celebration, theme, season and number of guests.
You can choose a traditional Italian Wedding Cake, the ‘millefoglie’, with its mouth watering layers of puff pastry, fresh cream and optional chocolate chips, topped with red berries and icing sugar.
Alternatively you can choose a traditional American-style wedding cake, created by a professional cake designer, with several tiers of sponge cake topped with icing and decorated with fresh or sugar flowers. The possibilities are endless: chocolate cake, lemon cake, butter cream, red velvet, meringue, profiterole tower...your wedding cake can be completely tailor made to reflect your personal taste and style.
It isn’t always easy to know where to start. Magazines and the Internet can be a great source of inspiration, but our suggestion is to begin thinking about the wedding cake style once the wedding dress, flowers and colour theme have been decided on.
This way the cake will fit perfectly within the theme of your wedding. The Wedding Cake can be personalized just like your menu. The pastry chef or cake designer can also work with your chosen florist who can decorate the cake with fresh flowers, ribbons and a personalized wedding cake topper based on your theme and preferences.
