Helen from Diviney’s Delights tells us everything you need to know about picking your wedding cake. Today there are endless styles of wedding cakes you can choose from. However the most important thing is that your cake is exactly the cake you want.

Once you have found your cake designer, you will need to arrange a cake tasting. Don’t feel limited as to what you bring to your consultation! it can be anything from fabric swatches, photos, jewellery or even something special to you both.  Before you know it your dream cake will start to take form. And the finished design will be entirely unique to your wedding. 

It is key that you trust your cake designer, tell them your budget upfront.  They may suggest ideas such as, over-sized sugar flower rather than piped lace or flower cascades.

For portion control, the number you need to serve is more important than the number of tiers.  If your numbers are on the low side you could make it up with dummy tiers but bear in mind they are not free.

Don’t feel like cake is your only option for both tastes and budget reasons. Alternative wedding deserts are becoming more popular! You can do cake pops, cupcakes and if you’re just not into cake you can serve pies, ice-cream or even donuts! Don’t feel stuck for the sake of tradition.

The best wedding cake advice that anyone can give you is to remember to choose something that you will love, have fun, try not to stress. Make your wedding day a day that you’ll never forget.
