WINTER WEDDING CAKES
The Perfect Cake for Your Winter
Choosing your wedding cake is one of the highlight of a wedding. For a
winter wedding, there are many cool ideas to reflect the winter season in your wedding cake. If you have a
baker who can do anything to your heart desires, then you can take your creativity to another
The first thing to have to decide on your winter
wedding cake is the filling of the cake. What type of filling would you prefer? All time favorite chocolate
or traditional vanilla? What about banana bread filling or a black forest cake? Think about the flavors of
the season. If you want, you can have an apple flavor added to the filling between the cake layers. If you
have a mixed crowd, then you might want to have a several tiered cake with different flavors for each
After picking the filling of the cake, now you can
decide how you want your cake to look. One great idea to reflect the winter season has to be snowflakes,

feeling and what it was like when your grandmother laid out a myriad of pies on the dining room table after
Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner.
You can choose to have a confections table where there
are a wide assorted variety of winter pies waiting for your guests to savor for dessert. You could have a
very formal dinner where everyone is seated and served but then for desert everyone gets to head up buffet
style and choose his or her own tasty sweet.
Instead of a cake you might also think about doing
cupcakes at your winter wedding reception. The cupcakes could have little snowflakes falling on top of their
icing. The baker could set up all the cupcakes so that they looked like mini presents waiting for everyone to
enjoy them. You could also set up a different desert on every table as the centerpiece. By doing this people
would get their own little treat and it would encourage them to visit other tables to see what they think that they
