A Guide to Elegant Wedding Cakes

Wow, it's the big day you've dreamed about since you were a little girl. Everyone is gathering in the church and they're all dressed in their finest clothes. The church is beautiful and the organ music is filling the air. This is your one special day of your life and you want to be as elegant as possible.

If the above paragraph describes the way you envision your wedding day there is no doubt you'll be looking at some of the more elegant wedding cakes. When it comes to wedding themes, elegant can be the most impacting and will surely be remembered by your guest. But what makes a wedding cake elegant? Let's take a look at some of the things you can do.

An elegant wedding cake is just like an elegant bride; it's soft and quiet yet makes a very loud statement to anyone who looks its way. In the beautiful way a bride is decorated to look elegant, you're going to want to do the same thing with your wedding cake. Soft textures with real silk and beautiful jewelry will make for an elegant bride and an elegant wedding cake.

If you've decided you're going to go this route remember you've got some pretty stiff competition if you want to leave an impression in the minds of your guests. Every day on television we have an opportunity to see the most elegant of everything. What you see on television is your competition. The one advantage you have of course, is the fact that your guests will be seeing all this in person and that's always going to leave a stronger impact.

Don't get so caught up in how your wedding cake looks and overlook how it tastes. When talking to your wedding cake chef make sure you make it very clear you want this cake to taste as good as it looks. Don't cut any corners and make sure you're using the finest ingredients available. Seeing an elegant wedding cake and then tasting delicious wedding cake is the ultimate one-two punch.

If you're going for strong dramatic feel think about using a metallic look. Gold or silver cake tiers would be a great option for this look. Add to that a fine dusting of gold powder on the entire cake. Believe it or not, gold is edible. You may want to even go with a very fine edible gold flake. If you're looking for something a little bit lighter yet still just as elegant, consider a leaded crystal tier.

As you consider accents to could put on your wedding cake, keep the same themes in mind. A beautiful leaded crystal bride and groom cake topper is going to be an amazing accent to your cake and also provide you with a very precious keepsake. A beautiful beaded monogram also makes for an incredible cake topper. Real or even silk flowers can make nice accenting around your wedding cake.

If elegant is what you're going for, make sure you don't cut any corners. Imitation silk flowers are never going to look as elegant as real silk flowers. This holds true for your cake tiers whether they're crystal or gold or silver as well is any type of accenting you use on your cake. This is your wedding day and you wanted to be as elegant as possible.
