Wedding Cakes – A wide range of tastes and shapes
Whether shape, decoration or taste – wedding cakes are becoming more and more unusual. Whether made by the confectioner or homemade – she is a real eye-catcher at every wedding. The wedding cake can be individually tailored to the newlyweds.
A favorite – the classic stick shape
Whether 3.5 or 15 storeys – the classic stick shape is still a favorite at most weddings. The confectioner makes almost everything possible. Whether taste, shape or cream – everyone will find their taste here. Because every floor has a different filling. And another advantage: the bride and groom do not have to choose the taste of the wedding cake.
Decorations for wedding cakes
The decoration of the wedding cake is entirely up to the bride and groom. It has nothing to do with the couple’s style and taste, but should match the table decorations. For this reason, it would be a great advantage to inform the confectioner about the decoration. Because if the table decoration is pink, a bright red wedding cake would not be suitable. Everything should harmonize together. Motifs such as butterflies, sugar roses, letters, figures are particularly popular.
Individuality of the cake is required
Every wedding cake tells a story: about the couple, about getting to know each other, about the future. The wedding cake is becoming more and more creative. Fondant and figures are often used. If the bride and groom met in Italy, the cake can take the form of a gondola. He likes to play soccer for his life, so the cake motif could be soccer. There are no limits for your creativity.
Cake instead of cake
For bridal couples on a budget, a cake buffet is a great alternative to the wedding cake. You can arrange family members or friends for baking. However, don’t forget to taste it. A cake in the shape of a heart from the confectioner is often cheaper than a wedding cake and tastes just as good.
Cake figures as icing on the cake
Cake figures – whether made of sugar or ceramics – are a must for many bridal couples. They also underline the motto of the wedding. A memento for eternity – whether funny, simple or romantic – a real eye-catcher on the wedding cake. You can find a large selection of cake figures in our shop, which you can order directly.
