What about the cake provided by the wedding reception site? What about ignoring it? That cake is being outsourced to a baker skilled in the creation of wedding cakes, then it’s being brought to your wedding and added to your bill with a nice profit markup for the reception hall. There is almost no instance when it makes sense to order this cake over one you can get direct from a baker. Be warned, however, that some reception facilities will CHARGE you for bringing in a different cake. They will refer to it as a ”plating” fee or some other such nonsense, but it can cost over $1 per person if your facility charges such a fee. Better to ask upfront to avoid any surprises to your budget.
If you decide to use fresh fruit in your filling, please make sure to use the freshest fruit you can find and prepare it as close to serving time as possible. If you must put the cake together the night before (for example, strawberry cake with fresh strawberries in the middle, cut the fruit in half. Smaller pieces will get mushy overnight and not make a good presentation. Not sure how to properly whip the cream for your filling, use the aerosol can version, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and add your fresh fruit and cover with more canned whip cream and more confectioner’s sugar. If your cake has a fresh fruit filling and the cake is covered in fondant, stack the cakes at your venue. The fondant will get gummy if you stack them sooner.
Be Sure To Plan Ahead, Don’t leave your special wedding cake until the last minute. This is one of the most important things that you can remember. Whether you choose the baker down the road, a talented family member, or a pastry chef who specializes in these tasty masterpieces, if you plan well in advance you will be able to handle whatever obstacles might come your way. Some bakers require only a minimum notice, while many bakers are booked far in advance. It’s a shame to have that perfect cake of your dreams be ”cancelled” due to the fact you cannot allocate a baker’s time.
The Topper, The topper ”tops off” your special wedding cake. The ”wedding cake topper” is the name for the elegant decoration or figure that sits atop a wedding cake. While it is true that some couples prefer to have the simple style of an unadorned cake, many prefer to have that final ”crowning touch”, the wedding cake topper, sitting on top of the upper layer of the cake. In today’s world the simple plastic ”bride and groom” of yesteryear has more likely been replaced by the classic porcelain figurine of today.
