A popular trend now is for people to get a small wedding cake and cupcakes. This is a simple and effective way to serve dessert to your guests at your wedding. It also allows you to get more flavor combinations and can be more budget-friendly.
Another common trend is to serve guests sheet cake, while also getting a small one-tier or two-tier cake for the wedding party. This is typically a more affordable option than getting a large cake with multiple tiers.
To ensure you get the cake and design you want for your wedding, you should find a baker six months to a year before your wedding date. You will want to meet with the baker to discuss cake flavors, design, and servings.
MAKING SURE TO USE A WEDDING CAKE SERVING SIZE CHARTBefore you decide on a cake, be sure to use a wedding cake sizing chart. This will help you determine what size cake you will need to get. After you know what size to get you can decide on flavors and design.
