Fruit Cake. In the United Kingdom, the traditional wedding cake is a rich fruitcake. It was the cake of choice for the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate. It is not a dense cake, but the traditional English version is, nonetheless, packed with dried fruits and chopped nuts and brushed with brandy. It is usually topped with Royal Icing which seals in the freshness of the cake. Royal Icing. Due to the smooth and beautiful look of Royal Icing, it is often used for decorative wedding cakes and to create delicate decorations on the cake, such as a monogram. As it does not have as pleasant a taste as marzipan or traditional soft icings, it is not recommended for icing cakes, unless cake stands are used. This is because after Royal Icing dries and hardens, it tends to crack easily. Fondant. This is rolled into thin sheets and placed on cakes for a very smooth finish. Fondant makes an excellent base for decorations, and is chosen more for looks than flavor so you may want a more delicious layer of frosting underneath it. Marzipan. An almond paste, Marzipan is also rolled into thin sheets and glazed for icing cakes, primarily wedding cakes. This use is particularly common in England, on large fruitcakes. Persipan is a similar, yet less expensive product, in which the almonds are replaced by apricot or peach kernels. There are German, French and Spanish variations of Marzipan.
Flavor: While it is essential that your cake appeal to your visual senses, it is even more important that it taste moist and delicious! Contemporary cakes come in a multitude of yummy varieties from chocolate or vanilla, to fancy carrot, cheese, banana, fruit or mousse fillings. If you are tempted by different flavors, you can have a multi-flavored cake with different tiers in different flavors. Icing: The icing on the cake is traditionally white or ivory. A more contemporary approach is to match your icing to your wedding colors. Anything goes from dark chocolate icing, to pale pastels or bright colors.
Marble Cake. A marble cake can be your answer to try to please all, and each cut piece can make a beautiful display on its plate. Another method for people pleasing is to alternate layers or tiers with chocolate cake and white cake. Lemon Cake. For variety, a refreshing lemon cake may fit with your overall wedding style, especially as you may have the color of lemons as a part of your color scheme. Yellow can be more appropriate for a spring or summer wedding. Carrot Cake. A fall or winter wedding can be the opportunity for a carrot cake. Keep in mind that the traditional cream cheese frosting found on carrot cake is going to be cream colored rather than pure white.
