Your wedding cake will stand on its own table, for all of your guests to admire. It should be both tasty and beautiful.

When to Begin Looking

Begin checking bakeries about six months before your wedding. As with a caterer, you will need an estimate of the number of guests you will be feeding.

What to Look For

Bakers should be able to provide you with photographs of wedding cakes they have previously made, or actual cakes which are available. They should provide you with some samples to taste, so that you can compare the quality of different cakes..


There are always the traditional ones: white or yellow cake. But you may wish to be a little different. Other choices may include chocolate, rum, carrot, pound cake, marble, or even cheesecake. There are just as many choices for fillings. These may include butter cream, jams, pudding, custard or fresh fruit. The fillings come in different flavors, too. Your choices may include raspberry, orange, lemon, chocolate, mocha or amaretto.
Another non- traditional choice would be cheese cake, which also comes in a variety of flavors. Cheese cakes can be displayed as they are, or can be frosted to appear more traditional. (You can also ask if the cake can be made crustless, which also gives it a more traditional look). In addition to flavors being swirled into the cheese cake, you an also accent the plate with a variety of fruit sauces, or chocolate sauces. Fresh fruit is also a great addition to the plate… artistic and tasty!


In general, wedding cakes are frosted in white whipped cream or butter cream frosting. Carrot cake is usually frosted with a cream cheese frosting.There is usually an accent color, generally a pastel. This accent color should be the color of your attendants’ dresses, to help coordinate the cake with the rest of the wedding.


Again, the sky’s the limit. Round, tiered cakes are the most popular for weddings. But there’s also heart-shaped or square. You may also opt for one large cake, with smaller cakes at each side connected by bridges or ribbons.
