Can You Have More Than One Cake?
Did you know that you can have more than one cake at your reception? Yes, you read that right. The age-old tradition of having just one wedding cake is getting a 21st-century makeover. More and more couples are asking, “Why stop at one?” And frankly, we’re here for it. Keep reading for the sweet lowdown on having more than one wedding cake at your reception.
Variety Is Key
Imagine giving your guests a choice between a rich chocolate truffle, a zesty lemon blueberry, and a classic red velvet. No more fretting about selecting that one perfect flavor because you can have different cakes with different flavors.
Aesthetics & Photo Ops
Different cake designs can be a visual treat. You can play with themes, colors, and heights. Think of your cakes as an edible art installation. Your guests won’t stop snapping photos and it allows you to get creative. Plus, this is the perfect opportunity to feature a groom’s cake to let his personality shine.
With the variety of dietary preferences and allergies these days, having multiple cakes can be a thoughtful touch. Consider a gluten-free option or a dairy-free delight alongside your traditional options to satisfy all your guests.
Symbolism And Stories
Each cake can tell a story. Maybe one that represents your heritage, another that is your spouse’s favorite dessert, and a third that is a flavor you both had on your first date. It’s a sweet way to share your journey with guests in a way that will resonate with them.
Size And Logistics
Having smaller multiple cakes instead of a larger one can often simplify logistics. They’re easier to move, serve, and depending on your bakery and choices, multiple cakes might prove cost-effective. Customized, intricate single cakes can sometimes be pricier than a few simpler, yet equally delicious ones.
How Is This Done?
Wondering how to pull off multiple cakes at your wedding reception? Here are some thoughts:
- Talk to your baker, because not all bakers offer multiple cakes, so discuss your vision early on.
- Use varying cake stands or play with table settings. Create a “cake corner” or spread them around the venue for guests to discover.
- You get to taste more flavors when you opt for more cakes!
- Ensure that the cakes complement your wedding theme or color palette.
Multiple cakes offer an innovative, fun, and sometimes practical edge to your wedding reception. So, if you’re asking if you should consider multiple cakes – our answer is a resounding yes!
