A slice of tra­di­tion served your way

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

WHO­doesn’t love to tuck into a nice slice of wed­ding cake af­ter a wed­ding din­ner?

While you can never go wrong with a tra­di­tional white vanilla tiered wed­ding cake, other clas­sic flavours such as choco­late have made a come­back in re­cent years, as has but­ter­cream ic­ing.

Trends have shown peo­ple like to dec­o­rate cakes with cute, car­toon-like top­pers (the fig­urines that sit atop of the cake made to look like the bride and groom).

For those who want a more ele­gant look with their cake, metal­lic wed­ding cakes are the lat­est trend. Made with a ba­sic wed­ding cake base, the cake is dec­o­rated in ed­i­ble glit­ter.

For a more rus­tic, vin­tage look, a naked cake could be the way to go. A naked cake is a cake that has been re­con­structed so ev­ery­body can see what’s in­side.

For those want­ing to do a wed­ding cake on a tighter bud­get, there are other op­tions.

A cup­cake tower could be a great way to pro­vide guests with a sweet treat but at half the cost.

Red vel­vet cup­cakes or even ba­sic choco­late or vanilla cup­cakes al­ways go down well.

You could even pro­vide each guest with an ex­tra cup­cake to take home as a wed­ding favour.

For those who don’t like cake, a sweets bar could be a good op­tion.

Set up a ta­ble with as many dif­fer­ent kinds of lol­lies, choco­late and ice cream that you love and you have the per­fect sweet buf­fet for guests to en­joy. The dessert bar can be themed to your pref­er­ence.
