Wedding cakes in Spain…
Getting married in Spain can be quite daunting but if you work with a good wedding planner in Spain the experience will be far more relaxing and less stressful.
Once you have chosen your wedding venue in Spain and decided on your wedding planner in Spain who will guide you through the process, they should provide you with a checklist so nothing is forgotten.
One particular item on the checklist is your wedding cake and the questions and decisions surrounding having a wedding cake if you have chosen to have your wedding in Spain.
The ideas and creativity of having a wedding cake at your wedding in Spain have moved on and it is fast becoming a focal point to compliment the style and theme of the day.
Guests love deserts and especially cakes not only for the taste, which is extremely important, but also the design. Today baking has been exposed by the media and the creations and ideas that have slowly crept into the wedding industry have added a whole new dimension to the old days of the fruit cake dressed in Marzipan icing.
If you have themed your wedding in Spain with colours and some form of memorabilia this can be incorporated into the design of your wedding cake. The cake can represent the brides dress or wedding invites and stationary carrying on the theme of their wedding in Spain throughout the day’s events. Having a wedding cake can also help to share your personalities with your wedding guests from the flavour you choose to the type, size and even topper.
Some new ideas that we have seen recently are charms added to a cake, which you can incorporate as your wedding favours or gifts for your bridesmaids. The charms are added to layers of the cake with name labels attached so your guests or wedding party can easily remove them and take them home as keep sake gifts.
Your wedding planner in Spain can help to suggest a few bakers that would make the cake to your style and preference and who would organize a tasting.
Elaine from our office in Barcelona recently visited a cake supplier Lolita’s Bakery along with a number of other wedding planners in Barcelona to enjoy an afternoon of wedding cake tasting.
“Many brides who have decided to have their wedding in Barcelona want to find a good wedding cake bakers. The wedding cake is a focal point for photo’s and normally is cut after the speeches and can help to gather your wedding guests onto the dance floor to start the bride and grooms first dance after the cake has been cut. Having a cake at your wedding in Barcelona can be a great photo opportunity and can provide guests with a wonderful memory and even fun part to their wedding experience depending on how the cake is presented.
It is important that you have a clear image of the type of cake you would like from size to height, and if you prefer a tiered cake and the shape i.e. round or square or a cup cake design which is extremely popular now a days.
Having your wedding in Barcelona means you can be as creative as you like or traditional, there are no set rules, but one thing is for sure you will have great fun & wonderful experience at your tasting when choosing your cake, if you are having your wedding in Barcelona; the ingredients are all delicious!!”
