Getting back to the basic wedding cake

Though some couples have incorporated cupcakes or pie instead of a wedding cake as a way for their reception to be unique, there is still something iconic about a classic wedding cake.

"Couples relate to the wedding cake as one of the focal points of their special day," Carol Murdock, owner of Classic Cakes, told the Hartford Courant. "We get a lot of frantic calls from brides and grooms who had initially decided not to have a cake, then change their minds at the last minute. They realize they want it for the pictures and for the ritual."

However, there is still a way for the wedding cake to be contemporary, yet elegant at the same time. Instead of the traditional three to four rounded-tier white cake, how about a cake with squared tiers or shaped into a more artistic design?

With the right baker, a wedding cake can be creative and personal to the bride and groom. For instance, if a couple met at a baseball game, the cake can be shaped into a stadium.

This can also be a way to focus the wedding party decorations, with everything in the room relating back to the theme of the cake.
