The cake should reflect the style of the wedding and the taste of the bride and groom. Vanilla cake with white icing is traditional but in more recent years the introduction of light pastels has gained popularity and is no longer used solely as an accent.

In addition, the fundamental shape and size of your cake should project a particular ambiance. A large, multi-tiered cake prepared without columns can be more grand and stately. A multi-tiered cake using columns to separate its sections supports a lighter more open atmosphere. Columns help the cake appear lighter, airy and less massive.

The bride and groom should feel free to make the inside of their cake to suit their tastes. The interior certainly does not need to be consistent with reception’s theme or ambiance, particularly at the expense of quality and flavor.

You are not limited to one flavor per cake; each tier may be unique. This allows you to satisfy a variety of tastes. If your cake has three tiers, you can offer your guest three uniquely flavored interiors. Of course, each tier’s exterior would have the same color finish and details, making the inside a pleasant surprise.

Cake decorations often include details taken from the wedding gown. Pearls, lace, ribbon, and even fabric may be duplicated using edible media such as icing, butter cream, and whipped cream. Of course, you may use the actual trim itself if a more perfect match is desired. Decorations which support the wedding’s design, theme, and mood add a greater impact for the event. Remember, weddings and wedding cakes by their nature are elaborate, luxurious, and detailed.

An agreeable alternative for the bride and groom who fancy a less adorned affair, however, would favor fewer, but well-chosen, accents and details. In this event, you might want these fewer details to be more central to the theme, style and tone of the wedding. The good news is that most decorations are included in the price of Julia’s Bakery cakes, so cost as a rule should not inhibit your creativity and flare.
