⦁ Determine the Number of Guests and Budget
Before we start talking about colors and frosting, the first aspect that needs attention is logistics. If there are going to be over 500 guests in attendance AND the wedding cake is THE dessert being served, you will need to select a cake with an appropriate amount of layers or plan on having sheet cake ready to serve alongside you cute and dainty two-layer cake.
⦁ Choose the Flavors You Like
This is one of the fun parts of choosing a wedding cake. Set up a tasting – with an idea of what you are looking for – and try out the flavors that are going to be best for you. This is your wedding, so don’t worry if Aunt Suzy doesn’t like chocolate! What do you want to be eating (or getting smashed in your face…) at your wedding?
⦁ Consider Your Wedding Style
Sometimes we come up with the best tasting, largest cake, but the colors of the frosting or the filling style just does not match up with that relaxed beach vibe you want for your reception. Your wedding style is going to be something you will want to consider when you select that gorgeous triple chocolate wedding cake.
⦁ Match Your Cake Topper
The heart wants what the heart wants, but it is a good idea to try and coordinate with your all-important cake topper. If your heart is set on a sweet and romantic cake topper, but is also in love with an ornate cake design that does not leave room for a wedding cake topper, it may be time to take a step back and rethink your wedding cake choice.
