There are a lot of important parts that come into play when planning a wedding. You have to find the right place to have the wedding, the right caterers, and we do not even need to cover how important the wedding dress is! However, one thing that normally gets left off the “importance list” until it's too late is the wedding cake. Your wedding cake can really make or break the whole decorating theme that you have set for your wedding. Today we are going to talk about how to find unique wedding cakes. By the end, you will be able to come up with tons of great wedding cake ideas for your wedding.
First of all, you have to break out of the box! Most people think that only elegant, layered cakes can be used for weddings. However, this is not the case. In fact, there is a growing number of people who are using square wedding cakes. This is a growing fad, because it is different and allows people to do more with the cake itself. For example, people love to have pictures iced onto the cake. This can be a picture of the bride and groom or of just about anything. This is a great way to turn normal wedding cakes into personal artistic creations.
If square wedding cakes do not sound like your cup of tea, then you can stick with the normal layer cakes. However, this does not mean that they can not be unique. In fact, there are a lot of different things that you can do with normal cakes. Normally people go about picking out these “unique” wedding cakes in a few different ways. First of all, they can go to caterers and cake designers, and look at blue prints of cakes that they all ready have made up. This is a great way to get an elegant item, but the chances of finding a unique cake are pretty slim. However, we still list it as a way to find unique items, because it does happen from time to time. One of the best way to go about finding a cake for the wedding is, of course, to look online
When it comes to looking online for wedding cakes, there are (yet again) two choices that you are faced with. The first choice is if you want to buy your wedding cake online. More and more companies are starting to offer this method in purchasing a cake. However, the shipping cost on this kind of cake is going to cost about as much as the cake itself. The other way to get these online is just to look for cake designs that you like online. Chances are, when you are looking for cakes online, you are going to come across a few different cake designs that you really want. If you can not afford to have that kind of item shipped to you, then you can simply print off a picture of the cake, and take it to a different designer. Although they may not be able to get it just the way you want, they may be able to get it pretty close. They can also use that cake picture as a guideline to go by. The hard part about doing this is to find a cake designer that will be able to make the masterpiece that you printed off.
Now, if you do not have a lot of extra money to buy a wedding cake, then you may want to consider making it yourself. This is a great way to save money on the wedding. Making wedding cakes is not as hard as you may think. In fact, the main thing that you are going to need is, of course, the cake layer tins. These are tins that come in round little circles and are different sizes. Buy as many as you need to reach the height of the cake that you truly want. From there, it's about like baking a normal dessert. Simply fill up the cake tins with the cake mix of your choice, and stick them in the oven. When they are done you will want to cut of the tops of them, which have likely baked higher than the tin, to make them flat. This allows them to evenly sit on top of each other. Then you can get some normal white frosting and cover the cakes yourself. The cake may not look just like ones you would buy from a store, but the fact remains that it's a good way to have a cake for your wedding and have one without having to spend a ton of money on it.
Wedding cakes are very important when it comes to planning the overall theme and feel of your wedding. Do not wait until the last second to find out where you will be getting your cake from. Doing that can just add more stress to the planning of the wedding itself.
