Wedding Cakes: Classic Designs That Have Stood the Test of Time

Four Wedding Cakes to Choose From

Thursday, July 27, 2017

Traditional wedding cakes haven't changed much for a long time, and some of the classic designs are as popular as ever. If you are having a traditional wedding, why not choose your cake from among the classic wedding cakes? Traditional wedding cakes will never be out of style, and the awe-factor for your guests (or is that the 'aaaaahhhhhhhh' factor?) will be high!


Here are some timeless ideas for classic wedding cakes to choose from:

1. The standard most traditional wedding cake is actually a fruitcake. You can choose from a range of heavy, dark fruitcakes, and make it unique with a particular kind of icing, or with a personalized cake topper.

2. Another of the classic wedding cakes is a vanilla pound cake with a butter cream icing. What could be more traditional for a wedding than white-on-white?

3. Carrot cake is another classic choice for wedding cakes - especially if you want to save money. It's also a great 'modern' choice if you have a particularly health-conscious guest list. :-)

4. Wedding cakes that incorporate mousse have always been really popular, but be particularly careful of ordering this kind of cake for a summer daytime wedding.


- If you are using a professional cake-maker, ask to see (and sample!) various kinds of flavors of wedding cakes, and icings as well.

- Place your order up to 6 months in advance.

- If you are using a cake-topper, be mindful of the size and weight of it based on the type of wedding cake. If you're not sure, double-check with your cake chef.

- Based on the number of guests you'll have, you'll need to work with your wedding cake chef if you want a classic multi-tiered cake. Most bakers of wedding cakes have an easy formula they can use to determine how many layers will be necessary, and your design ideas will be taken into consideration, too.
