Welcome back to another edition of wedding planning and today we are talking about cake. Now there are two default things I keep hearing – the first is that all wedding cake tastes bad and second, people keep telling me I am not going to eat my own wedding cake. Let’s address that latter point first, I don’t think they know time that well. I was able to do a tasting of my cake over New Year’s and it is DELICIOUS. I will be stopping whatever I am doing and you better believe I am going to have some of my wedding cake. Full stop. (That is what the Brit’s call a period to end a sentence but “full stop” is just stronger, don’t you think?)
Now the fact that people say wedding cake tastes bad, this is an interesting one and I can see it go both ways. Sure, if you are dancing or drinking and you get to your cake nearly an hour after it is served – especially if it has been in the fridge – I can see how it may be soggy and not taste great. Or if the couple chose an odd flavor, like lavender cake, and you do not care for that. Lastly, I can understand why so many bakers use fondant to create gorgeous masterpieces – it holds up so well – but in my opinion is not the tastiest. But outside of these three reasons – cake is delicious and wedding cake usually uses the best ingredients, or at least mine will! While I have the flavors picked out I still have to finalize the design with the bakery and here are some of my inspiration shots:
