Best Wedding Cake Flavors, Innovation...
Stress no more over finding the best wedding cake flavors. Exotic cake flavors and combinations are the latest trend and this article will guide you through some exciting ones!
There’s a reason the cake is one of the last things enjoyed at a wedding – it’s one of the elements your guests will remember most! Yes, the flowers in your table settings may have taken hours to deliberate over, and the two of you may have spent days deciding on the song for your first dance, but your guests will always remember your wedding cake, both how it looked and, of course, how it tasted! Luckily, you can’t go wrong with one of these flowery wedding cakes that are perfect for all styles.
You have several options when it comes to flowery wedding cakes. First of all, you can opt for decorative flowers made of sugar. While they may be more expensive than using fresh flowers, you can customize every aspect of them to your specifications, which makes them one of the most budget-friendly ways to have a unique cake.
Of course, using real flowers is a stunning option. Your best bet is to find flowers that are in season, so they will have peak blooms on the day of the event. Of course, you can also find plenty of real flowers that will suit your colors and theme – no matter what it is.
Finally, using flowers as a cake topper is currently a popular alternative to more traditional toppers. Cascading fresh flowers are perfectly suited for events that are elegant as well as those that are bohemian. For those that just can’t give up the little bride and groom statuettes, consider embellishing them with real or fake flower petals.
