Cake decisions are the best decisions. But deciding what kind of delectable dessert you’re going to have as the centrepiece to your wedding breakfast, is the ultimate in dessert selection. In recent years there has been many an experiment with cake alternatives such as dessert tables, doughnut walls and bake off displays. But there’s something about a towering masterpiece that’s simultaneously too good to eat and too good not to eat that makes the traditional tiered wedding cake a tempting choice.
If you are going to invest in a beautiful bespoke cake then you had better do your homework. Most cake designers have their own style. So, like hiring any other creative professional, it’s important to choose one that resonates with you. Also, if you plan on serving the cake to your guests on the night, it will need to not only look the part but taste delicious too. Regardless of whether you choose a traditional cake or an array of alternative desserts, hiring a professional cake designer is a smart move.
