One of the fun parts about choosing a custom wedding cake designer for your wedding is that your cake is just that....custom! You are not limited to a selection of cakes from an album, but are free to dream and create a design that is perfect for your wedding! It's unique and one of a kind! After all, you don't necessarily want a cake that 5 of your best friends have chosen as well.
I wanted to share with you a design that I will be creating for one of my February 2018 couples. We met last week and over an hour long consultation designed the perfect cake for their one of a kind wedding. Their wedding has somewhat of a dragon theme and they wanted to incorporate that into their cake. I had a great time coming up with ideas and designing their cake with them...and I'm even more excited to turn it into a reality in a few months. This cake will resemble a mountain, with more icing on the top cascading down to a semi-naked cake at the bottom. Powder sugar will dust the cake, almost giving the cake a snow effect. Adorned on the cake will be colored isomalt crystals in various colors, shapes, and sizes. We will complete the look with a dragon on top of the cake. I get so excited just thinking about how fun this cake will be to make, I cannot wait to show you all pictures!
Do you have any fun or unique ideas for your wedding cake? If so, let's get designing!
Today, I'm turning the tables a bit. Face to face consultations are so important when designing a custom cake. I ask a lot of questions and some probably seem like they aren't important for the cake...but they are. As your cake designer I don't want to just know about the cake. I want to know about the entire wedding. Why? Because as we begin to discuss design elements to your wedding day I can help guide you on what small decisions to make concerning the cake that will tie it into your reception flawlessly. Some couples get thrown off guard when I start asking a few of these questions, but rest assured it's not just small talk. I'm learning about your wedding so I can guide you through all the millions of pinterest ideas floating around there!
A few of the questions I might ask are:
If we haven't sat down together for a private consultation and tasting contact me and we can set that up! I would love to help you design your ideal wedding cake!
