Your wedding is coming up. It’s one of the most special days of your life. From the flowers, to the ceremony, to the reception-you want everything to be special and memorable. One of the most exciting and fun moments of your big day will be the cutting of the cake. Here are a few ideas to make your cake unique and playful.
One unique aspect of your cake that you want to keep in mind is its color. You can go for the traditional white cake, or you can choose to spice things up a bit. A brightly frosted cake will be sure to grab the attention of your guests. A bright blue, a glowing orange, or even a luscious green would be good ideas to throw around also. It’s up to you on what color you choose, just remember to have fun with it.
Sculpted cakes are also a great idea. Sure, you could stick with the traditional three-tiered cake, but you could express yourself more through something unique and personal. A heart shaped caked could keep with the theme of love and dedication that all will experience as they bite into your cake. Alternatively, if you are really into music, you could get your cake baked into the shape of a musical note or instrument. Think of ideas that will express your uniqueness as a couple, and let that shine on to your guests.
Another smart idea is to use cupcakes instead of an actual cake. One good reason to use cupcakes is that they are easy to pair with most combinations of icing. You could even choose to frost some cupcakes one color and the rest another. Cupcakes are easy for your guests to walk up and grab instead of having to wait to get a piece of cake. Most importantly, you can still top the cupcake tower with a small wedding cake for you and your new spouse to cut, for tradition!
When all is said and done, just remember to have fun and don’t be afraid to take chances. This is your big day. It should reveal your personality and the love you possess. Whether it is a traditional cake, an original approach to a cake, or small cupcakes, be sure to do that which pleases you both the most. You won’t regret it, and your guests will walk away with something to remember for years to come.
