Weddings in the 21st century have evolved from the fruit cakes of old to newer and more elaborate structures. Some cakes today follow the three tier white cake you are accustomed to seeing while others go creative and choose cakes that reflect their personalities as a couple. Today's wedding couple is better informed and usually know what they want. Many bakers have computer programs that allow the couple to see what their cake will look before placing their order. This way they can take part in the design and be sure the cake they get is their "dream cake." Consultants at a good bakery can help a couple choose a cake that fits their vision and the theme of their wedding, without ignoring the realities of their wedding budget. A wedding cake today is as much about the couple and their style as any other part of their wedding. A wedding cake's theme and style should match the rest of your wedding.
