Perfect Weddings

Create Your Wedding CakeóMake it Unique!


Designing your wedding cake is an important part of your reception. You should blend your personality with the feel your want to portray at your reception.  For instance:

*Graceful scrollwork, fresh flowers and a more traditional French Vanilla cake
lend themselves well to a Victorian style reception.

*Geometric shapes and designs with bold flavors like Italian Ribbon cake or cherry almond
are great for a more modern feel.

*An elegant, sophisticated affair will have only one or two colors, clean smooth lines and
an upscale flavor like pink champagne or chocolate raspberry.

*A tropical event may utilize sugar sea shells with flavors like coconut mango or key lime!

Here are some ideas you can use to create your perfect cake:

YOUR STYLE


Marzipan and gum paste
Don't forget about handmade gum paste flowers and marzipan fruit.  Both add unique touches that will
make your cake personal.

Fresh flowers
Add beauty and a splash of color to wedding cakes. For a sophisticated touch, sugared flowers are another excellent choice.

Fresh fruit
Sliced peaches, clusters of grapes, sliced kiwi, fresh berries! This is especially delectable with white chocolate cheesecake.
