The Perks of a Wedding Cake
Wedding cakes have been a part of receptions for years and years. They symbolize the union of two families coming together and the sweetness of what the future holds for the couple. Presenting your beautiful wedding cake next to your sweetheart table is the cherry on top for a perfect night.

You can also choose to save the top tier of your wedding cake in your freezer to enjoy at your one-year anniversary!
One of the reasons why cakes have been so popular is because of all the different variations you can choose from. When working with a bakery, consider make an appointment to try each of their cake flavors. Along with flavor options, the appearance of your cake has endless possibilities! You can choose to make the cake look more rustic by selecting a “naked cake” style. Or if you decide that you want a more traditional wedding, pick a simple, elegant pure white buttercream or fondant cake with a few real flowers. Whatever you decide, make sure that it matches the overall theme of your special day and that you absolutely love it!
