The wedding cake design should not only reflect personal style, but also ideally be in sync with the menu and the décor of the wedding reception. The wedding cake should fit in the theme of the wedding reception.
Wedding cake designs can come in many forms, from the usual cream or white icings in conventional designs, to wholly non-traditional designs laced with vibrant artistry.
With the passing of time, wedding cake designs have evolved. Couples are now choosing cupcake trees with greater frequency, which was one of the foremost wedding cake ideas. Yet, some still have a preference for the conventional cakes for their wedding cakes.
The size and design of the wedding cake may depend on a number of things, like the size of the wedding budget or the availability of other desserts in the reception.
Today, one can find pastry chefs who offer infinite wedding cake ideas on icings, decorations, construction, and flavors.
A wedding cake's design can be a reflection of personal taste. A couple with a passion for cars or motorcycles can have wedding cakes reflecting the same; a small motorcycle accompanying the miniature figures of the couple atop the cake, for example.
The flavor of the wedding cake is another important aspect. No flavor is off-limits for the modern wedding. One can have cheesecakes, mousse-filled cakes, pound cakes, vanilla, chocolate or sponge cake.
Today, one can find competent bakers with the ability to create the lacy look of the bride's dress with frosting or the use of pearls. With frosting, these bakers can duplicate the look of any part of the reception's décor. Also, couples can have their initials entwined in the cake with frosting.
