Let Them Eat Cake

Cake shopping is half the fun of wedding planning! Let us help you find the perfect wedding cake with our guide to the most delectable flavors and styles for your special day.


Satin Stacked Tier

You will often find that traditional wedding cakes are tiered, with white or cream colored frosting. Modest florals, pipe detailing, and a smooth finish are all this cake requires for a classic touch.


Naked, Floral-Tiered

Elegant Open Pillar Tiered Cake

Give your cake a lift with this elevated, three-tiered style. Most wedding cakes are tiered with two or more layers. These layers can be divided by cake plates, or cane be given some height through the use of columns.



Jumbo Stacked with Ribbon Trim and Floral Accents

Keep your guest count in mind when selecting the size of your cake. The rule of thumb is that three tiers will serve 100 guests, four tiers will serve 100 to 150 guests, and a five- tiered cake is plenty for 200 guests.

Contemporary Cakes

Contemporary and modern cakes break away from the traditional circular feature, and focus on a variety of shapes, displayed in eye-popping, geometrical arrangements, with extravagant detail.

Couples are opting for trendy dessert tables featuring all of your favorite goodies. Think cupcakes, cookies, and fondue!

Tip from the Pros: Dummy cakes give the illusion of a full-sized wedding cake, but in reality, they are comprised of one edible top layer for the bride and groom. The lower tiers of the cake are actually filled with styrofoam, but are decorated to mimic the design of a fully edible cake.
