I don't know of anyone who doesn't savor the thought of eating wedding cake...cannoli filling with a light and airy white cake or chocolate ganache paired perfectly with a light raspberry flavor slab of deliciousness. Just writing the words is making me crave just a mouthful.
More than likely, you have spent some time tasting and designing your wedding cake. You have ordered the perfect topper. Appointments with a floral designer have involved choosing the types of flowers you want and how they would be arranged. Wedding cake...check that off the list!
Not so fast! After all the hours spent on Pinterest, the tasting, and making phone calls to those directly involved, can you imagine your disappointment when walking into your reception and finding the most beautiful and tasty wedding cake perched on top of 30" round table with a linen thrown on top?
Traditions have come and gone in wedding world. Thirty years ago, when the wedding cake was making its big debut, a gold cart would be wheeled out from the kitchen onto the dance floor. You, ceremoniously, would cut into this mountain of sweetness, in front of all your guests as they "ooooohed" and "ahhhhhhed". Your new spouse and you sharing the ceremonious feeding one fork full of the cake you spent hours contemplating. This is a thing of the past.
Today, cakes are still the center of attention in a much different light. Instead of making a short appearance before being sliced to serve, the cake is on display for the entire event. This slight change has allowed us to create cake displays that are can be tied into the overall vibe of your wedding. The actual cake ties into the complete design.
One of our most popular cake displays is this golden beauty. It's simple and can be designed to work with most styles and vibes. A cake stand can be added for additional height and greens just give it some softness.
If a vintage or a garden wedding is the look you are trying to create, this beauty is sure to make a grand appearance. This is an outstanding cake display and later can be used as a backdrop for pictures.
Simply rustic allowed us to take this sweet cake and give it the perfect backdrop of a rustic barn found in an old barn. Don't miss the cute cake stand of the gold suitcase for an added feature. Photo courtesy of Lauren Fair.
