Your Cake Checklist

Wedding Cake Record

On your wedding day, you can have the cake of your dreams and eat it, too! Traditional sponge cake with white icing is a thing of the past; today's wedding cakes come in all shapes, sizes, flavors and colors - your wish is the baker's command! Find a caterer or baker who specializes in wedding cakes and who regularly works with couples to fulfill their wedding cake visions. Look through their cake albums to find a style you like and make sure to sample just a little of everything!

From a three tiered dark chocolate cake with passion fruit mousse filling to lemon poppy-seed cake and orange crème icing, the choices for your wedding cake are almost limitless. Can't choose just one luscious filling? Go for one in each tier!

Decorations and toppers for your cake aren't limited to the conventional bride and groom anymore, either. Everything from fresh flowers, lace, charms and jewels can adorn the dessert of your dreams.

Don't be afraid to make special requests - it is your wedding cake after all. Use our cake checklist to keep track of your decisions throughout the flurry of taste-testing and choosing your wedding cake will be, well, a piece of cake!
