A part of your wedding planning is to consider wedding cake designs ideas.
When hubbie and I were married, an acquaintance from my husband's work was very kind to make us a wedding cake. It was a round, 1 tier, white, traditional wedding fruit cake.
Today, however, there is a huge move away from the traditional fruit cake mix. Now with items such as plates and pillars to hold the tiers, the structure of the cake is where the strength is and the cakes themselves can be lighter in consistency.
Common choices for cakes are still carrot cake and chocolate or vanilla sponge cake. Although by no means are you limited to these choices. In fact, you can choose nearly any flavor you desire. It is best to work with your baker to know what options you have. If you are planning to serve the cake to your guests though, it is important to pick flavors with universal appeal. This is the reason why chocolate and vanilla remain so popular for cakes made for weddings.
At the end of the day, it is the couple's choice and most are looking for the simple and elegant styles and creating memories with unique wedding cakes.
