Once you know your menu and how many guests are attending, if it is not just a dessert reception, you will want to have a cake that compliments your meal rather than acting against its in taste. Nothing can ruin a great reception quicker than having a strange taste from the dessert after a fabulous meal. You want your guests to leave thinking that not only did they get the best meal, (but where did you find that great cake maker?) (also known as a baker), as well. Also, you don’t want to add all that sugar to your system in one day for another reason, your hips. You’ll still want to be able to get into your dress or suit after all of those tastings.
Refrigerated Fillings, If your event is held indoors whether it is a big hall or someone’s home, feel free to use a filling that has to be refrigerated. Cream cheese, custards, pastry cream, whipped cream, puddings, and any mousse type fillings that include fresh fruit are perfect for these venues. Cakes can remain refrigerated until right before serving. Let people know when they request these fillings that there needs to be space in the refrigerator to store the cake until serving. A lot of people fill the refrigerators with everything else and then have to scramble to find room for the cake. It cannot sit out for a long period of time or there will be a disaster. Speaking of disaster, please do not mix up a batch of the pudding mix as it is instructed on the box and use that as a filling for your cakes. Unless it’s made like a mousse, it will not hold up to the weight of the cake on top and will ooze out and make a mess.
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 In today’s world the simple plastic ”bride and groom” of yesteryear has more likely been replaced by the classic porcelain figurine of today.
How many cake pieces do I need? All you need is this formula: # of Guests – 10 = Number of Pieces needed. Are wedding cakes coordinated with the reception flowers and other decorations? You bet they are. In fact, wedding cakes are often the centerpiece of the décor for many weddings. Your baker will be familiar with his/her role as it relates to dressing up the cake for the wedding. But you should always discuss specifically what the baker will do upon delivering the cake. Sometimes the florist decorates the cake, but many bakers are happy to use the flowers that are being used for your wedding. But that means the florist needs to set aside some flowers to be used as cake decorations, and that means the flowers need to be delivered before the cake is delivered. See how that all ties together? Keep in mind too that when using fresh flowers as cake decorations, be sure that none of them have been sprayed with pesticides or other inedible chemicals.
