4 Tips for a beautiful wedding cake
- The stand – While you can easily place your wedding cake on a table and serve your guests, it wouldn’t stand out as the presentation itself is thoughtless and boring. You do not need a fancy stand, but do need to make the stand appealing. For instance, some couples have had their wedding cake supported on chandeliers. Other have had theirs suspended on a swing. You do not have to go crazy with it as a simple table covered with cloth, ribbons with the day’s theme colors can work.
- The presentation – In order to draw attention to the cake, it should be set up strategically at the venue where nobody can miss it. You can have it stand tall at the center of the venue reception, or at the high table. Setting up your wedding cake at the very back of the reception venue where it’s hard to spot is a bad idea. Your guests will be wondering if there is a cake at all and will have no reason to stay till the very end.
- The icing – For icing, you can go with fondant or frosting. This depends on other factors besides preference. For instance, if you are having an outdoor wedding in summer, frosting it a bad idea as it will easily melt in the heat. Also, the thickness of the icing should be just the right amount of thick. You can have creative patterns done instead of a plain icing and play around with colors.
- Personality – The thing about weddings is that they are an intimate affair with close friends and family who know you a bit more than other acquaintances. They know your personality and character and can easily identify with you. To add a personal touch to the ceremony, you can have a bit of you and your partner illustrated on the cake. Play around with the topping or the entire cake. It is not a wonder to see a wedding cake designed mimicking a football stadium since the couple enjoy football. It gives the guests something to giggle about and can be a great conversation starter.
