A picture-perfect wedding cake is the finishing touch to a celebration of a lifetime together. There are so many options when deciding on the perfect wedding cake. Traditional wedding cakes never go out of style but wedding cakes these days are as varied in design and decoration as they are in flavors and fillings. Baked by Susan is an experienced wedding cake baker and designer and is the choice for hand-made and beautifully designed wedding cakes in Peekskill, NY and surrounding areas.
Wedding cakes no longer have to be the predictable designs that you saw in your parents’ or grandparents’ wedding photos. Wedding cakes now come in colors, flavors, and decorations that express the spirit and the excitement of the occasion and reflect the hopes and dreams of the happy couple’s future life together.
Some of the trends in wedding cakes include:
Naked Cake: A naked wedding cake is a layered cake with filling that basically goes unfrosted, leaving the cake as a simple, informal option for a wedding cake. Naked cakes are simple, casual, and informal for such types of weddings. Some brides opt to add fresh flowers to the naked cake option.
Rosette Cake: A rosette cake looks stunning. We completely cover the entire cake with pretty, lush roses. In a cake that is two or more tiers, some couples decide to cover one tier in rosettes and leave the other one without the rosettes to add different dimension to the cake.
Ombre: This iced wedding cake usually incorporates two colors that are subtly blended together to give the cake a two-toned look. Brides often choose the colors to reflect the colors of the bridesmaids dresses. We often place scattered buttercream flowers with the same color theme all over the ombre cake.
Ruffled Cake: A ruffled cake features a cake that is layered with ruffles made out of fresh buttercream. It is a beautiful and different way to make your wedding cake special.
At Baked by Susan, we make our cakes batch by batch and completely from scratch using whole eggs and fresh butter as well as King Arthur flour. We make our buttercream the old fashioned way with egg whites and sugar on the stovetop. Not many bakeries these days make their cakes fully from scratch. We hand ice each and every wedding cake and take pride in the effort we put into our cakes. Our wedding cakes include as many consultations and tastings as you need to decide on the perfect wedding cake for your special day.
