Wedding Planning – Helping the Bride and Groom Plan their Wedding Day – How To Make Your Own Wedding Cake
If you are sticking to a very tight budget and you are unable to afford the services of a qualified cake maker, then why not consider making your wedding cake yourself. This way you can have the cake exactly how you want it to look, and add some of your own special touches.
Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too. You will need to keep in mind that the cake is not going to look like something out of a magazine, unless either you or your partner are qualified pastry chefs. Having said that, don’t be scared of giving it a go, you may actually surprise yourself. You will want to take your time when it comes to making the cake, so if there is anything else pressing that you may not have time to do, ask a close friend or family member if they are able to take care of the matter for you.
The last thing you want it to rush the project and the cake turns out looking like something out of a horror movie. Now it is time to decide what you want your cake to look like. Gather up all of your wedding magazines and turn to the cake sections, here it will show you photos of all kinds of cakes. Take the time to pick something with your partner.
You may like one particular cake and he may like another, if this is the case, why not join the two ideas together to form the perfect cake. If you are going for a multi tiered cake it may be a bit of an effort to get them layered properly, instead go for a cake that you can stack the bases together.
You will also need to make sure that you have the correct recipe for your cake. Ask friends and relatives for the standard cake mixture recipes, then you can decorate the cake with anything you like. You could try different colored icings or add flowers and a cake topper for the top of the cake.
