Once your task of choosing a chef is completed, the next step is to arrange an appointment to meet with him or her. You can prepare for this meeting by bringing pictures of wedding cakes you have seen and liked or a sketch of your one-of-a-kind dream cake. Also have in mind the style and flavor of cake you would like. The baker will then take your ideas, along with his suggestions, to create a masterpiece that suits the decor of your wedding reception, as well as the personalities of the bride and groom.

You must now decide whether you want a traditional wedding cake or something unique. Choices range from the basic white, chocolate or marble pound cake which can be accented with flavors such as vanilla, lemon or almond, to richer tasting cakes such as mousses, cheesecakes, carrot cake or fruit cakes to name a few. Some shops offer their specialty house cakes or may ask you if you have a special combination in mind. Next, you should think about what kind of filling you would like. These range from basic buttercream, italian cream, fruit, liqueur or mousse fillings. The frosting and decoration are the next consideration. More decisions to be made! They range from the basic buttercream frosting, to the elegant look of rolled fondant which can be decorated with ruffles, lace and other designs, royal icing, marzipan or chocolate. There are also numerous piping designs to choose from. The top of your cake can be adorned with fresh, silk, pulled sugar, pastiage or blown sugar flowers, or bride and groom ornaments that range in style as well as price. The cake can also be embellished with ribbons, bows and lace. It is in the decoration of a wedding cake where the imagination plays an important role. Once all the above components come together, the makings of a wedding cake fantasy are at work.
