A reception is not complete without a few layers of baked cakes. And while your first worry may be the taste, this is actually the easy part. Call your local cake shops and schedule a time to sample bites. You'll be surprised how many options you'll have, and by the number of combinations you'll be able to pull off to keep all of your guests happy.
One way to do this is to get creative. Add a pop of color on a traditional white wedding cake. Include ribbon or a three dimensional element such as fondant flowers, real flowers, or candy pearls. Another way to be creative on a traditional or modern cake is to use icing techniques.
Another great trend is cupcakes. Cute little single servings displayed in any fashion imaginable. Cupcakes can display the same elements of a traditional wedding cake but have more opportunities. Fill a display with an arrangement of flavors, fillings, designs, decorations, and wrappers. These small treats can pack a big punch. Not to mention there is no need for a fork. Cupcakes can also complement a wedding cake which would be the best of both worlds.
