While it’s important for the cake to be beautiful, brides shouldn’t forget that the basic purpose of a cake is to be eaten. Patricia, from Patricia’s Wedding & Custom Cakes, suggests that, if a cake is to be cut up and set out for guests to choose pieces, couples can diversify their cake. “Every layer can be a different flavor,” she says. If the couple chooses to have the cake served to guests, however, fewer flavors is best. “I would suggest only two at most,” says Patricia. “We have 27 different combinations of flavors to choose from, so many brides get excited about the options and change their minds about having a cake served.”
Patricia’s Wedding & Custom Cakes also utilizes a special recipe of buttercream icing that has the smooth look of fondant but maintains the delicious taste of buttercream, providing brides with more options for flavor and presentation. “Fondant cakes are nice looking, but many people don’t like the way it tastes,” says Patricia. With the buttercream recipe, cakes still look polished, while providing a better taste to compliment the cake itself.
With a multitude of themes and color schemes available for brides, choosing a cake at Patricia’s Wedding & Custom Cakes to match in flavor and presentation can be a very fun experience.
