The wedding cake symbolizes the newlyweds’ first shared meal as husband and wife, the first blessing that they shall share as a new family unit. Hence, the cutting of the cake and the sharing of their first bites are important milestones never to be missed during the reception part of the wedding day.
In today’s wedding scene, getting everything and anything personalized is in – which means getting the wedding cakes to be absolutely unique and particularly customized to suit the bride and the groom is just as easy as one, two, three. Gone are the traditional days of the wedding cakes being all white inside and out, decorated with sugar flowers and lace cut-outs. Nowadays, wedding cakes can be anything and everything that the couple wants them to be.
If you and your groom-to-be are looking for the perfect wedding cake flavors to start with, here are a couple of creative suggestions that are sure to be a hit not only in photos but for your tummies as well.
The Classic Vanilla.
The sweetest and purest of all cake flavors would have to be vanilla, with its pristine white fondant, gorgeous yellow sponge, and crisp white filling popping in between the layers. Take a modern twist and make it into a naked cake – layers of filling and sponge minus the icing or fondant covering, perfect for rustic-themed weddings and for the more contemporary couple.
All-Out Chocolate Bonanza.
Let’s get it out there, it is totally okay to have a chocolate wedding cake. Especially if the bride and the groom are both chocolate-lovers, having an all-chocolate wedding cake is going to be in their wedding bucket list. Imagine getting chocolate cake piled on top of chocolate mousse, and then covered with chocolate fondant.
Red Velvet Madness.
The buzz-worthy cake flavor of this century might just be red velvet. Decadent and luxuriously scrumptious, the red layers coupled with sweet cream cheese filling simply makes for a romantic wedding cake.
Of course, wedding cakes have healthy options as well. Especially for the health-conscious couples and for those who are just in love with their scrumptious citrus and greens, carrot cake topped with cream cheese would be perfect for a summer wedding. Also, a lemon sponge paired with thyme and vanilla would be refreshing to munch on and would look ever so bright in the photos.
Vanilla funfetti, spiced fruit cake, piña colada with coconut icing, and liquor-mixed cakes all sound like great choices when it comes to those out-of-the-box ideas for wedding cakes. Of course, be mindful that it might get pricier as each layer of flavor and texture gets stacked on top of the other.
