Wedding Cake Don’ts…

24 Jan


The wedding cake is a major part of everyone’s big day, but so many people get it wrong. I’ve been to so many weddings and I think I’ve only said WOW to a handful of cakes. First and foremost with any delicious creation, the creation has to be just that…delicious and beautiful, there is no point having something yummy that looks like its been sat on by an elephant or something beautiful that tastes like cardboard. Here are a few dont’s that every bride and groom should stick by to ensure they get the perfect representation of them and their big day in cake form.


1) Don’t get a complicated design – forget add on stripes, starts, flowers and sprinkles…simple is always better, easy on the eye and way more elegant.

2) When deigning your cake and finalising colour schemes, don’t forget colour swatches.

3) Don’t choose an inedible bright colour, it looks artificial and everyone’s tongues and lips will be left looking crazy, including yours!


4) Don’t overlook the table, cake stand and location – it is extremely important to present the cake properly, it will look more grand and become a major focus of the day.

5) Don’t pick up the cake yourself – this is a major don’t…it is the bakers position to ensure the cake is displayed and delivered in perfect condition, this is a difficult procedure especially when it comes to tiered cakes as this means that the cake has to be properly assembled at the location.

6) Don’t try to please everyone! Remember it is your wedding day, choose your favourite flavour – Many bakers(including myself) give customers who order tiered cakes the opportunity to get different flavoured tiers which means you can please yourselves and everyone else.

7) Don’t forget to eat your cake – often with larger wedding it is hard to stay organised and keep to the time schedule…but whatever happens the cutting of the cake is a huge part of the whole ceremony so make sure you enjoy it.
