FAQs

  • Introduction

    A wedding cake is a traditional dessert served at wedding receptions following ceremonies. In Ancient Rome, wedding cakes served as a symbolic centerpiece for the bride and groom, and they consisted of spiced bread buns.

    Today's wedding cakes are quite different but still symbolize a bride and groom's love for one another. Traditional cakes feature three tiers, and the most common cake flavor is vanilla (white cake) with buttercream frosting.

    In addition to traditional buttercream, custom cake toppings, icing, and fillings include fondant, mascarpone, berries, and even crushed rock candy. A wedding cake is one of the most important aspects of any wedding, as it serves as the main dessert for guests, and it's often the first thing guests see when entering the reception area.
  • What is the best wedding cake?

    There are many different types of wedding cakes with various flavors, designs, and icing options, so the best wedding cake comes down to personal taste. Some of the most popular wedding cake flavors include vanilla cake with buttercream, red velvet, vanilla cake with blackberries and sugar flowers, and pumpkin spice with cinnamon fondant.

  • How much should a wedding cake cost?

    Wedding cakes can cost anywhere between $75 and $1,500. The price of a wedding cake is determined by size, ingredients, specialty toppings, and cake decorations, so specific prices can deviate from the average based on your needs. 

  • How much wedding cake should I order?

    The size and quantity of wedding cake you should order depend on how many guests will be attending your wedding. A standard three-tier cake serves between 50 and 100 guests, and a quarter sheet cake provides 54 servings. A half sheet cake serves 108 single slices.

  • What are options for wedding cake flavors?

    There are many options for wedding cake flavors, and cakes can also be customized with nontraditional flavors. Common options include vanilla with buttercream frosting, red velvet with white buttercream frosting, chocolate and German chocolate, and marble cake. Less traditional options include lemon, carrot, and banana.

  • What is the traditional wedding cake flavor?

    The most common flavor of a traditional wedding cake is vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. However, chocolate is also considered traditional, especially for groom's cakes. German chocolate, red velvet, and champagne flavored cakes are also popular and fall into the traditional category.

  • How many layers should a wedding cake have?

    Traditional wedding cakes generally have three separate tiers, but cakes can be customized to meet the visions of the bride and groom. Each tier has its own significance. The top tier is to be saved by the bride and groom and eaten on the first wedding anniversary, and the bottom tier is to be served at the reception. The middle tier is distributed to guests after the wedding.
