2. Say no to the Wedding Cake Catalogue

Cake catalogues are so out of fashion! You don’t need a menu to confide your imagination or your cake cravings. The secret to a show-stopper wedding cake is tasting as many cakes as you want till you find the one that speaks you. No need to look on some old fashioned cake catalogue, get in a pastry shop and eat the cake. It will be much more fun and will create the sweetest memory of your wedding planning.

5. Prefer the dummy wedding cake

Your entire wedding cake does not need to be entire edible. That’s why dummy and not fake as our expert suggests, are made for. This means that you can opt for as many tiers as you wish, with the only edible tier being the one you cut and taste as a couple. Choose individual little tasty cakes for your guests, to share the flavoursome dessert that matches your wedding style.
