Your wedding cake your way is the best way to describe the perfect wedding cake.

A wedding is a way to celebrate the union of two people who are starting a life together. People come to eat and drink and celebrate with the happy couple and their families. A great deal of work is put into the preparation for this day. The wedding cake is often the focal point of the event. If you are making your own wedding cake, don’t let the pressure get to you! When you look at the beautiful cakes in magazines or see them on television, know for sure, there are flaws on those cakes. The reason that you don’t notice them is that the decorator has a skill for hiding them! If your cake ends up with a flaw that you notice, you can possibly cover it with a flower or a swag or some other type of decoration. Don’t worry! You get to have your wedding cake your way! It is your day to celebrate.

There are specified rules for cutting the wedding cake that are a part of tradition. For instance, at a wedding reception, it is traditional to cut the wedding cake just before dessert is served, if the wedding reception takes place during lunch or the dinner hour. However, if the reception is held during tea or cocktails, the cake is cut just after all of the guests arrive. It is tradition for the bride and groom to cut and eat the first slice together, as a symbol of their choice to nurture one another. This is also a photo opportunity for everyone with a camera. The maid of honor or a family member slices the rest of the cake.

Choosing a wedding cake is quite a task. Tradition calls for a white cake with white frosting for weddings. In this day and age, couples are choosing their favorite flavor. This has bakeries and cake decorators striving to offer a larger selection of cakes. Chocolate, fruit, yellow, pound, and marble are some of the cakes made for modern weddings. Remember, it's your wedding cake your way!

Some wedding cakes have a different flavor for each layer. White icing, while still ordered, has made way for a wider selection of frosting colors and flavors. Chocolate, mocha, lemon, and any other flavor you can imagine are used for wedding cakes. It is possible to customize your cake using all of your favorite flavors. How the wedding cake is designed is a personal choice, as well. You can have just about anything you can dream up put on a wedding cake including, fruit and even real edible flowers.

It is your wedding; have it your way!
