Here is a third method for creating flowers, this time small buds, that when made in quantity can be used to create a bouquet effect or simply used to decorate cupcakes by themselves.

Summer weddings and cakes have to be carefully thought about when it comes to where the cake should be placed in the reception area. Keep out of the direct sunlight, heat and wedding cakes not a match made in heaven. Keep covered in case of flies. Never under no circumstances place your wedding cake near the dance floor because the boogie bopper may cause a lotta heartache. A steady table is a must for the cutting of the cake.

2. Consider two distinct styles of wedding cakes: traditional and modern. Traditional cakes will be multi-tiered, white, classy, and have only a few decorations that will blend in with the cake. The decorations will be reserved but whimsical, and be white or silver. You can make updates to this traditional style if you would like. Again, consider who you are as a couple. Are you more traditional, or do you like to show more personality and take risks? No one will have concerns about showcasing a traditional wedding cake, but some couples may not want to risk negative opinions of a more modern wedding cake. Modern wedding cakes will come in a variety of colors, be oblong, square, or otherwise irregularly shaped, and will have decorations that you would not expect on a wedding cake. Some of these modern decorations may substitute butterflies and roses for cats and fall leaves. Instead of having white columns, a modern wedding cake may feature posts that look like stacks of books. There is more room for creativity with a modern cake, but there is also an element of risk involved.

Most traditional cakes are decorated with white chocolate and various romantic motifs specific to weddings. If you're a traditionalist, then certainly this cake represents fits you the best.

One of the earliest forms of the wedding cake is the French Croquembouche. The legend of this cake says that a pastry chef, visiting medieval England, witnessed their tradition of piling sweet rolls between the bride and groom which they would attempt to kiss over without knocking them all down. The pastry chef then went back to France and piled sweet rolls up into a tower to make the first Croquembouche.

Second, meet with your baker for a consultation. The consultation should include cake tasting and design style. Ask to see their portfolio for examples of their past work. Be sure to discuss the budget that you set before you even meet. There is no need to waste your time or theirs if the options don't match your budget. By knowing your budget ahead of time they will be more prepared in what options to present to you.

With this viewpoint in mind, modern couples go on a hunt for a wedding cake designs. They want a cake that would fulfill all their requirements. However, one most important aspect which is matter of concern for the couples is the expense for going in for a very elaborate cake for the ceremony.
