Choose a cake design that taps into the festive spirit of your theme. Browse the internet for cake photos and keep notes of the various details that appeal to you. There are many talented bakers who will create a unique wedding cake based on your precise wants.

Although I don't personally recommend that you make your own wedding cake (way too stressful a couple of days before your big day) there is software available if you want to get creative and design your own cake.

Make appointments with 2-3 bakers to see a portfolio of their creations and also to sample the cakes. While the design itself will surely be a masterpiece, you definitely want flavor to match.

Winter wedding cakes are not limited to just one flavor. You can spice things up by choosing a different wedding cake recipe for each layer. This will satisfy the taste buds of all your guests!

While large white tiered cakes are always a magnificent choice, there is an increasing trend to surprise guests with unexpected choices such as rich chocolate or cupcake trees. With chocolate being the world’s most loved flavor it is surprising it took this long to show up on wedding cakes and not just in them!

The very popular cupcake tree provides tremendous flexibility in flavors and decorating options. Guests get to choose exactly what they want and there is no mess in cutting the cake.

Absolutely exquisite is the fondant wedding cake with embossing and piped details. In pure white with edible glitter and finished with monogram wedding cake toppers this is one glamorous choice. Round layers are popular for cakes with snowflake details as their shape is reminiscent of snowballs

Square cakes are now high style with a trendy, festive choice being the gift box stacked cake. With each cake wrapped in its own design, this spectacular cake is suitable for every color scheme and wedding size. Whether you have just a few gift cakes to a stack several feet tall, this style provides tremendous flexibility.

Any flavor is suitable for Christmas wedding cakes but the traditional fruitcake is making a comeback. The mass produced variety gets such a bad rap you may want to consider preparing this cake yourself. Traditionally made several months in advance and saturated with alcoholic liquors, this cake takes planning and patience.

Since your cake will ultimately be the centerpiece of your wedding, you will want to appropriately display it at the reception. Consider a silver plated or crystal cake stand to increase the overall height and grandness. Candles and table decorations may be appropriate but must be in keeping with the overall theme of your wedding and not detract from the beauty of your wedding cake.
