The wedding cake is always an anticipated site for guests. It’s the center of the reception. It’s a forever tradition. It’s the official sweet you’ll share  for the first time as husband and wife. Cakes come in all different shapes and sizes, but are best when they reflect your personality and style. Here are a few ways to make your wedding cake your own.

  • Use a family heirloom as the cake topper. Use a one of kind find from your grandmother’s home or your parent’s cake topper from their wedding years ago.
  • Use your initials or monogram.
  • Incorporate your colors, theme and season. Your cake is the cherry on top at your reception. It should compliment the decor and style of the room. It is also a great idea to get inspiration from your wedding gown.
  • Have the baker use a family recipe. It doesn’t get more personal than serving your favorite cake that has been at your every birthday and graduation.
  • Choose your favorite cake flavor. The cake tasting is the best part of planning for most couples, for obvious reasons. If Red Velvet is your favorite flavor, be sure to try a couple different bakers to get the flavor best for your palette.
