A key ingredient in planning your wedding is choosing the perfect wedding cake. When choosing your cake you must take into consideration your theme, the type of cake, and how much you are willing to spend. The first bite is shared between you and your partner, so make sure it is something you both can equally enjoy. 

Your wedding cake is the centerpiece during the reception, so it is important to choose a design that matches your theme. Whether you are a bride with bohemian, contemporary, or classical taste, there are numerous design choices to select from. A bohemian style wedding may have a cake with an earthy feel to it. This cake would be decorated with an assortment of delicate flowers and leafy green vines. A bride having more of a contemporary taste would enjoy a cake design that is polished with various hexagonal tiers and a smooth finish. Most brides enjoy a classical look for their wedding theme, so they may choose a cake design that is subtle, decorated with hand-painted flowers, watercolor designs, and is very elegant.

Choosing the flavor of your wedding cake is also an important step. Not only should this be a flavor you and your partner enjoy, but also one your guests can enjoy as well. Luckily, you have endless options to choose from, but there are so many delicious flavors it can be difficult to decide. Some of the most popular flavors tend to be chocolate with a chocolate buttercream icing, a white sponge cake with rose water infused frosting, as well as lemon poppyseed with a raspberry filling. Each of these are equally delectable, but at the end of the day it is which one you enjoy the most. Keep in mind, you want to choose a cake that will remain moist throughout the event without drying out super quick.

It is very important to take price into consideration when picking out your wedding cake.  Usually, the average cost for a wedding cake is around $500 but can quickly become an upwards of $1000. The more tiers a cake has, the ingredients used to make the cake, where it is being delivered, and any special requests with decor can add to the price.
