Aside from the bride’s gown, when it comes to weddings there is probably no more iconic image than the wedding cake.
From a relatively modest three-tier confection adorned with a ring of sugary flowers to mega-cakes stacked higher than the bride’s height and draped and garlanded with living blooms, wedding cakes can – and have – run the gamut. Just this past February, a bakery in England created what was reportedly the most expensive wedding cake, valued at $52 million – that’s right million – and covered in diamonds. The biggest cake – immortalized by Guinness World Records – was made by chefs at the Mohegan Sun Hotel and Casino in 2004 and weighed an astounding 15,032 pounds.
For most brides and grooms, the cost (and weight) of a cake will obviously be much lower; a 2011 survey from the website TheKnot.com found the average price of a cake to be just above $500. (Of course, the larger your guest list, the bigger the cake.) But no matter what you pay, you want to be sure your cake excels in two very important areas: Looks and taste.
Ideally, your cake will play off your wedding’s theme, incorporating colors, flowers or other elements that were used in the ceremony or the reception, or that represent a unique aspect of your relationship. And, just as ideally, it will be moist and delicious, prepared by someone with lots of experience in creating cakes for life’s biggest events.
