One of the biggest focal points of a wedding reception is the beautiful wedding cake. That towering, flowering, blinding beautiful wedding cake with the two people standing on top, that the bride and groom cut and then feed to one another.

Although a lot of brides and grooms choose to go with the traditional pound cake taste variety for their wedding cake, it doesn’t really have to be like that.

Flavor Choices.
If you choose not to go with the traditional pound cake type for all the layers, keep in mind that not everyone is going to prefer tastes such as lemon or raspberry, or any other unusual flavored wedding cake.

A popular alternative to that is a chocolate chip wedding cake. Or perhaps try going with alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla.

The top layer of your wedding cake is traditionally saved for the two of you to east on your first wedding anniversary. So be sure to select a flavor that you & yours will delight in, and make that your wedding cake topper.

Although many wedding cakes are bought in a traditional bakery store, don’t hesitate to shop at your local supermarket.  They can bake delicious wedding cakes that aren’t nearly as expensive.

If you are working on a budget, shop around for the best prices on wedding cakes and be sure to sample as many of them as you can. You may be truly surprised at just what supermarkets can produce for you!

If you have someone that has taken a cake decorating class and makes great cakes, you may find that they will do it as a wedding present and it will save you some money at the same time.

A wedding cake doesn’t have to be expensive to be really delicious, and you can find plenty of money saving ideas when shopping for your wedding cake.
