THE PRETTY DE­TAILS

New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -

If you have a clear cake dec­o­ra­tion style idea in mind, fab! But make sure to work through it with your cake de­signer as there are some de­tails you should take into con­sid­er­a­tion be­fore mak­ing your fi­nal de­ci­sion. First, con­sider your venue, says Jackie. “Is it in­doors or out­doors? What sea­son is it?” If your wed­ding is tak­ing place in the height of sum­mer, Re­becca sug­gests cou­ples steer clear of buttercream ic­ing as it’s prone to melt­ing in the heat. In­stead, opt­ing for a white choco­late ganache can achieve a sim­i­lar look, but will with­stand the heat bet­ter.

Check if your venue has a chiller to store your cake, if not, your cake de­signer will have to take into con­sid­er­a­tion how long it’ll be sit­ting around for be­fore go­ing on dis­play.
