Giving the fact that weddings are such ample and sophisticated events, it can be hard to establish which element of the day is the most attractive. But despite all the competitors, we think that the bride’s dress remains the sensation of the ceremony, while the cake is still the highlight of the reception. There are no other most anticipated centerpieces than these ones, although the guests can be impressed by any other small detail they’ve never seen or enjoy for the first time. But when it comes to big attractions of the wedding, these two are fundamental.
The wedding cake is now eagerly expected by the wedding participants because they are curious to see how it looks and how it tastes. The cake is no longer a sweet confection meant to satisfy a certain ritual or ceremony of the wedding. The modern couple doesn’t choose a cake only because it tastes fabulous but also because it’s meant to look fabulous! Therefore the aspect and the flavor are the two elements that should work together when it comes to modern wedding cakes.
You should be cautious when choosing both the exterior and the interior of the cake in order to obtain successful results. But when it comes down to the things one remembers about a wedding, we think the taste of the cake is among them. Pay more attention to the flavor you’re choosing for the cake. The options are endless, so try to focus on the tastes you personally like. You can risk and bring an exotic cake that no one really knows how it will taste, or pick something classic and safe that everybody will like. There are many unique blends to try, so don’t worry about the fact that you won’t be able to find something suitable. There are many ways to choose your cake’s flavor or filling. You can do it by the theme of your wedding, by the season, by the venue or by your personal taste.
One of the most popular and adored fillings for wedding cakes is chocolate. This flavor is irresistible and simply delicious, especially when mixed with hazelnut, mocha or raspberry. To give your chocolate cake a modern twist, coat it with rich ganache. It can also be trendy to mix it with fruit flavors, from orange to strawberries. Try a Mexican chocolate cake with cinnamon for a spicier taste. Vanilla is another filling choice for an elegant wedding. If you’re having a spring or summer wedding, combine vanilla layers with tropical fruit buttercream. For a winter or fall wedding, pair vanilla with nut buttercream. Among other unique flavors we mention; marble swirl, tiramisu, pumpkin, mint chocolate, lemon poppy seed, peanut butter or Irish cream.
