You look through pages and pages of magazines. You search the internet for hours. Eventually, everything looks the same. There are so many designs, sizes, shapes. Choosing a wedding cake can become very overwhelming. But, it doesn't have to be. Illyana came into our consultation, like most bride's, not really sure what she wanted. Together we discussed her colors and theme for her wedding. She found a photo of a cake that she liked, but it wasn't "the" cake. So, we took that idea and ran with it. She loved the two interlocking hearts on the design of the cake because it showcased the love between her and her fiance. However, she wanted to incorporate her colors. Adding one purple interlocking heart at the top was the perfect touch...not too much color, but just enough. Now, how to adorn the cake? She wasn't a big fan of toppers. She wasn't having a lot of flowers in her reception. She saw another photo with strawberries! That's it! Instead of flowers, fresh strawberries will decorate the cake in an elegant and beautiful way. Plus, you can eat them! It's a win-win! Not to mention, her filling of choice was strawberry. So, it complemented the cake very well. A few other minor decisions and it was done! Together, we had created the perfect cake for her wedding!
Your dream cake may not be out there. Don't worry. Bring in photos of cakes you like if you see some. Let's talk about them and run with certain ideas. Together, we can create the cake of your dreams!
I will not be posting a blog next week due to the holidays. So, to everyone out there I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! May God Bless you and your family this Christmas season!
