What Your Wedding Cake Says About You

Your wedding cake: make it your own

Thursday, July 27, 2017

Your wedding cake represents possibly the first shared 'task' of your married life - cutting it, together, some time after the ceremony. Why not make your wedding cake personal enough to make a statement about you as a couple? There are several ways you can make your wedding cake your own.


1. Make it yourselves rather than have it custom-made. If you like baking or 'mucking about' in a kitchen anyway, it's really not as hard a job as you would imagine to create your own wedding cake from scratch. That way, you (as a couple!) get to choose the exact size, style, flavor and colors you like.

2. If your wedding already has a particular theme, let the wedding cake carry the theme rather than choosing from among traditional wedding cakes. With advance notice, custom wedding cake makers can easily incorporate a particular theme, sometimes just by changing the color of the icing, or adding various decorative touches.

3. A seasonal wedding cake would be perfect for an off-season wedding - spring, fall and winter designs and recipes abound on the Internet, for example, or you can make up your own idea!


How you display your wedding cake is just as important as the style of cake for 'making it yours.' Particularly if your reception is outdoors or in a large hall, your wedding cake can easily get 'lost in the shuffle.'

To prevent that from happening, give your wedding cake center stage. Choose a separate table to display it, and if your reception is in the evening, find a way to provide lighting for the wedding cake, to show it off.

Beside it, on the table, display symbolic personal items (photos or love letters, favorite flowers, even old concert ticket stubs), or create a collage. Anything you can think of that fits with your wedding theme, or that tell your guests a story about you as a couple will 'personalize' your wedding cake - and your guests will love it!
