Who said wedding cakes had to be plain or ordinary? Many couples are realizing their most outlandish dreams in cakes that are layered with animated scenes, bouquets of edibles and whimsical designs that reach for the moon.
Whether or not you've got a vision for your cake going in to your initial meeting, a professional cake-maker should be able to help you organize your ideas and draft a creation for you that aligns with what you had in mind. Oftentimes, they can be a source of inspiration and build on your ideas to help you come up with something that's even greater than you imagined.
Many couples opt for humorous takes on traditional cake decor, such as a comical wedding cake topper with a pair of overwhelmed-looking bride and groom figurines or a metal wedding cake topper with a sleek, modern silhouette of the couple.
If you'd rather stick with organic decorations, you can create a whirlwind of flower buds, fruits, vines, leaves and so much more. Gourmands may opt for chocolate shavings or coffee bean designs, if they feel so inclined.
