Get a friend or relative to make your cake – this has the added benefits of potentially cutting costs, however if the person you are asking has never done it before you may be putting undue pressure and stress on them. Logistics can also become an issue, especially if you have also invited them to attend the wedding (as depending upon the cake a lot of setting up may need to be performed on the day which may jeopardise their attendance at the service). Another consideration is that unless the person is particularly experienced or skillful you may be somewhat limited in the style of cake that they are able to create (remember that trends have changed a lot over the years – so what was seen as fashionable in your parents or grandparents day is often not seen as being stylish today. However if you are a relaxed bride that doesn’t worry too much about the specifics and budget is a more significant issue then this is definitely an option to be considered.
Just like there are wedding dress trends there are also wedding cake trends. When I got married, I knew that I wanted my cake to be on three different pedestals arranged askew, not in a row or on top of each other, I was bucking the 2005 wedding cake trend. Back then most of the cakes looked like round hats stacked on top of each other, complete with the bow. Color was just starting to get adventurous, back then. Also I knew after tasting several cakes randomly, that I wanted double chocolate/carob and my friend’s specialty butterscotch rum in the middle. I also, love fondant, so I knew that I wanted that as my frosting. Although I didn’t buck traditional altogether since my cakes were white with purple ribbon at the bottom of each layer with flowers to compliment my dress. Because of my allergy to milk, I knew that the top had to be a white cake and hopefully something that would keep for a year, or so I thought.
