Tastings – The look of the cake is only half of the story the other half is how it tastes. Along with how beautiful a bride’s dress looked one of the other things most remembered or commented upon by wedding guests is how the cake tasted. So it is important that you are confident that the Cake Maker can deliver on taste as well as looks. One way of doing this is to ask for a taste testing (which is often combined with a Consultation) – be aware that some Cake Makers may make a small charge for such tastings. Flavours – An important consideration in the overall taste of a cake is its flavour. Some Cake Makers (for instance Masie Fantasie) offer a wide selection of flavours, however even if not explicitly offered, specific flavours can normally be requested.
Okay, by now, you know, I do research on trivial/little known traditions, so let me tell you why, supposedly we are to keep the top of the cake for a year and then eat it with your spouse on your one year anniversary. You know I had to know. One, because it seems so random. Two, our cake did not make it through the first six months (My husband had never heard of that tradition and thought that I’d forgotten that we had cake in the freezer. Ate, some of it and then called to remind me that we had cake. Do I hear a collective intake of shocked breath?) The tradition comes from the 19th century [There were a lot of things pertaining to cakes happening during that century. I wonder if Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom loved cake. Yum.] Anyway, during the 19th century, it was usual and expected that the bride and groom would invariably have a child 9 months or so after their marriage, so the top layer of the cake was saved to have at the Christening. This was before refrigeration, so where were they keeping it? For nine months and was it still any good? Boggles the mind doesn’t it? Maybe they were filled with liquor to keep or fermented or fermenting fruit?
