How to choose wedding cakes?
When is comes to choosing wedding cakes, main things to consider is style, size, number of tiers, flavours and decorations. Currently most trendy wedding cakes are rustic and simple yet elegant.
Rather than going by size and servings, it is an option to visualise your cake. How many tiers do you imagine it has? Do you want a lavish tall multiple tier cake, or a smaller 2 tier wedding cake? If you have a big wedding party but you want a simple small wedding cake then going for only 2 tiers is an option too.
And to make sure you don’t run out of cakes, you can purchase some simple sheet cakes or cupcakes to make up the serving numbers.
Most popular flavour for wedding cakes in Ireland?
Most popular cake in Ireland is chocolate biscuit cake, and this is no exception for wedding cakes. People love it whether they are young or old, men or women. So it is a safe option.
If going for multiple flavours, then other flavours could be opposite flavours to chocolate such as vanilla, lemon or berry. This way, you are likely to please all your guests. But most of all, choose flavours that you and your partner enjoy. It is your special day after all. And keep in mind, that nowadays dessert is also served, so the cake isn’t the only sweet option on the day.
How to make wedding cakes look rustic?
Fresh or dried flowers give the most rustic look to all wedding cakes. Eucalyptus adds freshness and contrast in colour. It just works if rustic and simple is the wedding theme.
How to cut wedding cakes?
Wedding cakes are normally cut from the bottom tier. The groom and the bride hold the knife hand in hand, and together they do one of their first tasks as a newly married couple which is cutting and sharing something sweet with their friends and family. This is the first sweet bite to represent the marriage and the wedding day celebration.
Chocolate Biscuit Wedding Cakes
Keep in mind that for chocolate biscuit wedding cakes the first cut can be a bit of a rocky road…pun intended! You might have to put some weight on the knife to slice through a mixture of chocolate and biscuits. But it is perfectly doable.
Of course, as we are creating new traditions each year, a couple may also choose to slice the middle or the top tier of the cake. The positioning of the couple and hands looks best for photos if they are cutting into the bottom tier. But if the cake isn’t very tall and you are comfortable cutting slightly higher up, then of course cut which ever tier you fancy. After all, it is your wedding and your wedding cake.
