You will have a certain number of guests, and each is to receive a piece of the cake. Either make sure it is large enough or talk to the baker about more cake in the same flavour. The cake on display need not be the only cake served. A 10 inch round cake (or tier) can serve about 40 small pieces; a 16 inch can serve nearly 100.
Is your wedding in summer or winter? Some cakes will stand the heat, others need to be kept chilled. A few venues can cater to both, so you will need to make some enquiries.
It is a no brainer to look at designs in wedding magazines, catalogues, and Google. This isn’t something to be analytical about – see what appeals to you emotionally. If you find common ground with your partner that’s a good sign.
He cake will not stand in isolation. It will probably be on a stand, and may have a backdrop. A cake with minimal decoration surrounded by matching decorations can create a very strong effect. People notice the overall effect rather than the cake in isolation. Wooden sculptures can work well with a cake, and make fine mementoes.
There are cake tastings available, which will cost you a small fee. Traditionally wedding cakes are more about the design than the taste, but this is less true than it used to be. Provided the cake is stable it can be decorated in almost any way you wish.
Budget is always a consideration, unless you are the part of the aristocracy. Yet while a cheap design will always be disappointing a moderate price can get something quite elegant. Some fine cakes are all white, or white with a single colour trim.
As with all parts of the wedding you will only have this opportunity once. The wedding photos will last forever, so have cakes and decorations that you want to be proud of.
Some venues and caterers also make cakes, but this never seems to be a popular choice. The wedding cake is one of the most important parts of the day, and the new couple want something that really suits them. Any cake provided by the venue tends to come from a short list of options, though there might be one you find appealing. Otherwise, look at the options and find the style of cake you want show off in your photos for year to come.
