The Wedding Cake | Jekyll Island Wedding Planner

One of the most important parts of a wedding is the wedding cake.  In fact, it could be considered as important as the bridal gown itself.  It is a very important part of the reception and represents much more than just a dessert.  A wedding cake is most often the centerpiece of your wedding reception.  


Tall Wedding Cakes

This year has brought the trend of towering, taller wedding cakes.  The number tiers have increased to five to seven tiers.  If you are planning a wedding reception, your best choice is a five to seven layered cake.  If your budget can’t handle a five to seven layer cake, you can always go for fake layers, too!  I’ll never tell!


Fondant Over Butter Cream Wedding Cakes

Couples are choosing butter creams because it is cost effective and delicious, as well.  Fondant is used in cake frostings because it gives the cake a very beautiful look, whereas butter cream tends to melt fast and doesn’t give the smoothness to the cake.  A layer of fondant over butter cream is both elegant and delicious!


Dramatic Color Wedding Cakes

Dramatic colors can be seen in wedding cakes, too.  Lots of green, blues, and even orange colored wedding cakes are in this year.  The traditional white wedding cake and the black and white themed wedding cake will also be seen this year.

Tiered Wedding Cakes with Baubles

Matched With Bridesmaid Dresses Wedding Cakes
