As you search for the perfect wedding cake for your big day, you’re probably looking at hundreds of photos of gorgeous, three-tier masterpieces iced to perfection, cascading with fresh flowers – images that say ‘dream wedding cake’ to you. But if the most gorgeous wedding cake in the world doesn’t taste amazing, that can be a nightmare for you and a big disappointment to guests. After all, the cake is the last taste of your wedding celebration. It’s what guests remember.
Your cake filling and frosting choices will depend on your personal style as a bride and groom. If you’re formal and traditional, you might love to have a vanilla cake with lemon filling. That’s a classic, and it’s what you’ve always dreamed of. If you’re non-traditional, you might envision a chocolate-frosted cake filled with espresso mousse, a dark, decadent cake instead of the traditional, white-frosted light and airy cake.
The season of your wedding can also play a part in your wedding filling decisions. For your spring wedding, with all of your pretty pastel flowers and your tangerine and yellow color scheme, cut slices of your cake showing off an orange buttercream or ‘creamsicle’-flavored filling coordinates your colors right down to the last taste, and turns your cake into the perfect springtime fantasy dessert.
For cake flavors, your baker might offer vanilla, chocolate, and lemon as the basic flavors, and you may be asked to pay a little bit more for that red velvet or carrot cake. Investing more in your cake is always a great idea, since this taste is paramount. This is not the place to cut corners.
