Recently I’ve had a few of my brides and grooms ask for a simpler wedding cake. Either they are being budget conscious or they like a cleaner, more tailored look to the design. Either way, I have led these clients to wonderful bakeries that I may not normally send my clients to for their cake.
It’s not that they don’t do wedding cakes; it’s just that most of my clients are looking for cake that may need a bit more artistic flair and expertise to create the perfect cake. I have been thrilled to be able to send business to these local bakers because their cakes are delicious!
If you are planning your wedding or other special occasion and think a local baker is for
you, listen up...
I start off by explaining to the baker that we are looking for something very simple and not a
traditional wedding cake that they may be used to creating. Then I ask them to show me any interesting techniques they use to ice the cake that could give it texture. I explain that any adornments or decorations will be added after they deliver it to the venue. I love simple flowers or maybe borrowed broaches that can be sanitized and placed in strategic areas of the cake.
No matter how you choose to design it, your cake should be exactly what you want for your special day!
