Choosing Wedding Cakes

When choosing your cake it naturally occurs to brides to think flowers, colours, patterns and before long they are creating the dream cake-without first reminding themselves that its ultimately destined to be eaten by their reception guests!

I encourage my brides and grooms to first think what their guest list consists of in terms of population cross section; Older folk do prefer fruit cake in general, whilst younger people seem to go more for sponge. The point being, the choice here dictates the size of the cake; you need roughly twice the sponge to fruit. It also affects which basic design you will have available, as many designers of wedding cakes, myself included, have reservations about stacking sponge cakes.

These issues include the suitability of sponge to 'carry' a cake above as required in the stack design, and the question of freshness; ideally when icing a cake a good designer will have in mind a number of days which they will want the cake iced before adding final touch decorations, and with sponge this is critical to the cakes freshness. When stacking we like to have the icing a little harder as this compensates for the problems of accessibility given by stacking.

Feel free to ask any questions about this or other matters relating to your wedding cakes at my web site 'Wedding cakes by Franziska'.

Happy wedding!

Do We Still Need Wedding Traditions?
Traditionally at weddings the speechs are made after the wedding dinner but do the speech makers really enjoy their meal? I have been to weddings where the best man could not eat his dinner because of nerves!!Traditions come into being when many people do the same thing over and over again so by definition we can start our own traditions to suit the times in which we live. So when it comes to speaking and eating at a wedding then why not reverse the order and let everyone enjoy their meal!!Now more than ever before we stand up for the right to express our individuality so why on one of our most precious of days do we feel bound by the past and what is traditional? Our wedding day should be an expression of who we are, of who these two peopl...

Avoid Seating Faux Pas at the Wedding
Unless youre having a really small wedding with just a few dozen people in attendance, youll probably assigned seating at some part of your wedding planning process. Assigned seating can seem too formal, and might not lead to spontaneous mingling. An open seating arrangement does seem more care free and allows guests to just grab a chair at whichever table they like. Unfortunately, open seating comes with a whole set of problems, and youre better off having an assigned seating arrangement.
