Let’s talk about wedding cakes today! Yes, they are gorgeous. Yes, they are delicious. Yes, there are tons of styles and designs to choose from. And, yes, it can be hard to find the right one. Today I am going to share some of the talented Laura Marie’s Cakes beautiful and absolutely mouthwatering cakes along with some tips to choosing yours.
Laura designs each cake as uniquely as her couples. I can honestly say no cake is ever the same and the amount of work she puts in is visible each and every single time. She said so herself “No one touches your cake except for me”. Her cakes are made from scratch including her extracts (talk about commitment) and all her ingredients are locally grown. So yes-they are incredibly fresh.
Along with having a tasty cake, for a wedding there is extreme focus on the design of the cake as well. But where do you start and how do you choose? Here are a few tips I used to finding our design.
1.Set on a general wedding theme/feel
If you don’t have a particular theme for your wedding it’s okay. Think of your colors and venue to guide you with styles that go with your wedding. For us, our wedding is rustic and minimalist so we wanted our cake to mimic our wedding style. We loved the idea of a semi-naked cake too!
2.Figure out the size of your wedding cake
Laura helped us figure this part out. Your baker will know what size works best to fit the number of guests at your wedding. Our wedding is fairly small so we are having a 3 tiered cake. Once you figure that out then you can search for ideas based on the size of your cake.
3.Check your baker’s social media for cake ideas
I love scrolling through Laura’s instagram. Not only does she post a picture of all her couples, she is always sharing Insta-stories or posts with her latest designs. Each as beautiful as the one before.
4.Check Pinterest for ideas!
Of course how can I leave out Pinterest. It is a wonderful source for inspiration for just about everything. I spent a lot of time searching up different styles of semi-naked cakes until I found something that felt like it would be OUR cake.
Wedding cakes became a tradition as a symbol of unity. The tradition to cut the cake together and feed each other symbolizes the couple always there to provide for one another. It is also said to symbolize fortune and fertility and bringing everyone who eats it good luck. Above beauty and taste your cake should be something that makes you both happy. Continue to keep that joy in all your wedding details and planning. I would love to know what your favorite wedding cake style is in the comments below.
