When it comes to wedding planning, your food and cake should be a top priority. Aside from the partner, outfit and venue of course! Whilst we might be biased, we think the cake is the centrepiece of your celebration. A sweet treat for all your guests to admire and enjoy.
Yet with so much choice, and many tastes to appeal to, just exactly how do you decide? Worry not, at Anges De Sucre cakes are what we do, and wedding cakes are one of our many specialities. Here we break down simple, easy steps to how you and your future better half can choose the wedding cake for you, fuss-free.
Ask for advice
Whilst you might have a flavour or style set in your mind, speak to friends or family that have been through this process before. You might be surprised to find out that they look back and wish they had opted for another, or if they have any helpful advice
Organise a tasting session
Here at Anges De Sucre, we are more than happy to arrange a cake tasting session, after all you can’t order if you haven’t tasted the goods! Not only will you need to decide the flavour of your select cake, you will also need to decide on the filling and icing. This is the fun part, book an afternoon off, make a day of it and be sure to come with an empty stomach!
Choose your design, or custom your own
If you want to go fully bespoke now is the time to share with us your likes, dislikes, colours, themes and dreams. Go wild and we will aim to make it happen. No cake design is too crazy, no flavour too rare! At the Anges bakery, we promise to never use ‘traditional’ fruit cake or royal icing that comes with classic wedding cakes. Our goal is to create a unique, fun and tasty cake to provide all of the good vibes as you celebrate your lifelong commitment! The cake adds to the party, it should be a showstopper, like the rest of your day to remember.
If you already like the look of one of our many tried-and-tested wedding cakes, we can tweak and personalise to your exact specifications. Be it colours, flavours or filling, tell us your ideas and we will advise on our best possible outcome and suggestions.
Select your size
Here we will look at the number of guests you have attending, your needs and suggest a size of cake. This also includes how many layers you may need, we think the bigger the better, but it all depends on the couple and the design. Did you know with Anges bakery you can also customise each tier with a different sponge flavour? It’s a win/win.
Finally, you will need to consider how you are going to display your cake on the big day. It’s the focal point at your wedding, apart from you of course, and a true expression of you and your partner’s personality – in cake form. We suggest your cake should have its own table, so it gets the attention it deserves.
We hope this is helpful, but please do get in touch if you have any questions and arrange your wedding cake consultation today!
