Your wedding day is one of the most special and memorable days of your life, and one of the reasons it will linger so long in the memory of you and your guests is how special the wedding cake is. There are an infinite number of designs and types of cake to have for your big day, and so many of them will stay with you long after you’ve departed the wedding venue. So much time and effort is spent designing and crafting these beautiful pieces of work that you almost feel guilty when the time comes to cut the cake. It can feel like putting a knife through a piece of art, but it has to be done, as you know it’s going to taste as good as it looks. Throughout history the wedding cake has changed from the traditional tiered cake with Royal icing to the modern trends of cupcakes and cake pops but one thing is for sure: The wedding cake is as important today as it has ever been.
