White is definitely the color of a wedding, but did you know that there is another reason why the white is the customary color of a wedding cake? Back in Victorian times the finer ingredients of a wedding cake were scarce and hard to come by. If the cake had a white icing, this revealed the fact that only the best and most expensive white sugar was being used. Brown sugar was much more common, and therefore much less expensive. So, the more white the cake, the richer the people.
It is important that the cake design be according to your theme. For instance, the trending for designer wedding cakes nowadays include fondant frosting, which though very good, still cost more than almost ordinary cakes which similar base but with a butter cream frosting. Although weddings are really expensive because of the things you have to put together, you could still have a cake that would still represent your personality and make your guests enjoy every bite of the cake. Good quality cheap wedding cakes arent very easy to find so if youre working to a low budget you may have to be a little creative with your cake to find something that will both look and taste great. Your wedding cake will be the centrepiece of your wedding reception, but dont forget that you and your guests will want to eat it too so sacrificing taste for something stylish may end up being a disappointment.
Here are five ways you could save money on your cake and still have a delicious centrepiece to be proud of: Ask for your cake as a wedding present. If you cant afford to splash out on a luxurious wedding cake yourself, think about whether there are any guests coming to your wedding who would like to pay for your cake as their wedding gift to you. Close aunts and uncles or grandparents often want to make a special contribution to the big day so its always worth dropping a few hints. Make the cake yourself. Making cake isnt as difficult as you might think and as long as you give yourself a few practise runs and you follow the recipe carefully youre bound to be able to produce something youll be proud of. Cupcake towers are the easiest DIY wedding cakes to tackle, and you can have great fun icing them with your bridesmaids, but you can also try a traditional tiered cake if youre feeling brave. Combine your wedding cake with dessert. Wedding guests are often so full from the wedding breakfast that they dont really feel like eating wedding cake, so it makes sense to save a little money and serve your wedding cake as a dessert. Many couples are choosing unusual cakes such as wedding cheesecakes or ice cream cakes that make fabulous centerpieces for the first two courses of the wedding breakfast and can then be served up immediately afterwards. Minimise the size of your cake. The high cost of a wedding cake often comes from the fact that it needs to feed so many guests, but this doesnt have to be the case. Many cake suppliers will offer a package that includes a smaller decorative cake to feed approximately half of your guests supplemented with the same flavour tray cake, which will work out a lot cheaper than a full-sized wedding cake. Decorate a supermarket cake. Many supermarkets offer great quality but affordable celebration cakes covered in simple white icing. These can be dressed up with coloured ribbon and costume jewellery or fresh flowers to create a really personalised design that works seamlessly with your wedding theme; your guests will never guess its not a designer wedding cake!
