Finding the right bakery to work with is the first step in selecting the flavors for your wedding cake. Many bakeries will charge a small fee if you wish to taste specific flavors. Often this fee is deducted from your final cost should you decide to order from them.
Have a good idea of what your wedding menu will be like when you go to your tasting, so you can tailor the cake to the rest of the meal. For example, if your meal is focused on Spanish flair, how about a rich vanilla cake with dulce de leche or a guava filling? Or maybe a cake with hints of ginger would be a perfect ending to an Asian feast.
Think about choosing a flavor that might have personal meaning to you and your beloved. Was your first date over coffee? Perhaps a mocha filling. Is your fiancee Italian? A fresh cannoli cream may delight him.
Don’t be afraid to stray from basic flavors such as vanilla and chocolate. Some of the more unique and complex flavor combinations we like are:
- Coconut cake striped with key lime curd and vanilla bean filling. This cake is not only a delicious pairing of flavors, but it also looks amazing when plated .
- Dark chocolate cake with coffee buttercream and almond toffee bits. The crunchy toffee offers an unexpected yet delightful texture.
- Vanilla cake with banana cream and passion fruit filling. The combination is so very refreshing and perfect for a summer wedding.
