The Groom’s Cake Is a Great Way for Your Hubby-to-be to Add a Personal Touch

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Let’s be honest, there aren’t that many grooms out there who truly get a say in the details of their wedding day. So it’s important, ladies, if you want to keep your hubby-to-be happy, to allow him to put his mark on the wedding day, even if it’s in a small way.

That’s where the groom’s cake comes in. The groom’s cake allows your guy to express himself in whatever way he desires, and in this case, the more creative, wacky and outlandish, the better!

Here are a few of our favorite groom’s cakes we’ve seen designed by Signature Cakes by Vicki. Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration from these and dare to try some of your own creations!

Sweetface Cakes Says, “Think Seasonal & Local,” with Wedding Cakes Flavors & Styles

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Some brides dream of a summer soiree filled with the sights and smells of freshly bloomed flowers, while others dream of a fall celebration incorporating the beautiful autumnal hues of the season. Whatever the vision for your perfect day may be, be sure to remember that the flavor of your cake is as important as the look of the cake!

Renay, owner of Sweetface Cakes, suggests that brides think seasonally when choosing the flavors and ultimate look of their cake.

“Try to stick with flavors that nature is providing at that specific time,” Renay says. “When you do, your cake will take on the true flavors of the season and taste rich and organic, not manufactured.”

Along with providing delicious and unique flavors to brides, Sweetface Cakes also utilizes fresh ingredients from local farmers whenever possible. Renay reveals, “When the freshest of local fruit of vegetables can be used, the cake will taste that much better!” We couldn’t agree more!
