Let's be honest, choosing the cake is probably the most exciting part of wedding planning. Okay, I should probably preface that by saying that I’m overly obsessed with food. When I’m eating breakfast, I’m already thinking about lunch and dinner. But even if you’re not a food lover like me or maybe desserts aren’t your thing (really, do people who don’t like dessert exist? I don’t think so) it’s still fun to meet with cake vendors, try samples, plan your design and pick a cake topper.
My number one tip to remember -- don’t rush the process! Try as many places as possible…they don’t have to know you’re shopping around after all. This will also help you be sure of your final decision. And be open-minded; you might actually be surprised what you do and don’t like.
Deciding on your cake also has a lot to do with the time of year and time of day of your wedding. For example, lemonade-infused cake is perfect for a daytime, summer wedding. It’s refreshing and light, whereas a chocolate and peanut butter cake is a nice fit for a winter, evening wedding. Then there are very seasonal flavors such as pumpkin for fall or raspberry for spring.
