Due to the current restrictions of numbers of guest allowed to attend weddings, many people are postponing their weddings until next year, but some are going with the flow and continuing with plans to get married in this season. We just don’t know how long these restrictions or similar will be in place, so some may be questioning what can be done to keep the things they dreamt of for their special day.
What if you’ve dreamt of having a gorgeous cake that would be one of the centrepieces of your day?
If you have, then here are some solutions that us as cake makers can offer you:
- Have a fake tier (or two) as the base and some smaller tiers on top.
A base tier can be made of polystyrene, coated in your chosen cake covering and decorated just as if it were a real cake. A talented cake maker will be able to do this so that no-one would be able to tell the difference. Be aware that this option will probably cost you much the same as a real cake of the same size. You wanted a semi-naked cake? Your cake maker should be able to created this effect for you too
- Have the same number of tiers, but shrink the size of each tier
There is a big difference in number of portions given by a 12, 9 and 6 inch three-tier cake. This will give you nearly a hundred portions. By changing that to a 9,7 and 5 inch, you will get 50 portions. (Based on each tier having 3 layers)
- Small is beautiful
A two or even a tall one tier cake can be made to look beautiful and elegant. Go with the flow and have a smaller cake. Exquisite finishes will make up for size, and give you the photographs and memories you need. A talented cake maker will be able to scale down decoration particularly if you have sugar flowers, and make you a cake to remember.
