THE PRETTY DETAILS
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.
