Wedding CakesBook - 2003
A wedding cake is likely the most memorable dessert you will ever serve, the piece de resistance at the reception. Choose it with care, and with guidance from the experts at Victoria. They and the many breathtaking photos in this luscious, elegant guide, will help you find inspiration and come up with innovative ways to make the cake fit snugly into the wedding's overall theme. Once limited to three tiers set on columns, decorated in white, embellished with piped sugar frosting, and topped with a miniature bride and groom, this confection now makes vivid style statements. For example, some bakers will create a cake to match the colour, texture, and details of the gown, even mimicking its buttons, bows, ruffles and pleats. Or, the cake's shape and structure might mirror that of the wedding's locale - echoing the decor of a fancy hotel room or imitating the greenery and flora at an outdoors reception. Sweet detail boxes throughout provide invaluable tips, and there's a glossary of basic cake terminology. From finding a baker to deciding on the right size to cutting etiquette, all the information you need is contained in these pages.
