If you are planning to buy your wedding cake, you can expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $500 or higher, depending on the style and number of people to feed. Many people think that to have a magnificent wedding cake, they have to pay a fortune. In reality, you can make your own and now even feel intimidated.

If you have ever baked a cake, then there is no reason why you cannot bake a wedding cake. When you look at the elegant cakes made by cake makers, you would probably be stunned to find that they are actually quite easy to make. There is a guideline to follow:
  • Determine the size of cake needed to ensure every guest will get a piece

  • Determine the flavor of the cake as well as any fill and topping flavors

  • Determine the design. You will have a choice of suspended or cascade holders, which are the easiest options.

When it comes to flavors, you can choose a cake right out of the box. You no longer have to make everything from scratch, although you can if you like. When it comes to the frosting, there is much to be desired in store bought frostings. For one thing, they are too thick to pipe borders or roses. The best option is to make butter cream frosting, which is delicious and easy. For this type of frosting, you could use either Crisco or butter, or a nice blend of both. You will find this recipe in any cookbook and for the best results, use the recipe that has more Crisco than it has butter. Too much butter can cause the frosting to be thin and if sitting in the heat or in sunlight, it would melt.

The fillings method is very easy. Again, you can buy a box cake mix that has the fillings already there. Once the cake is out of the oven and cooled, you would poke holes in the cake, and use a cake-decorating bag filled with mousse, whipped topping, jam, or pudding. This adds a wonderful flavor and a pretty cake when cut. Finally, for the frosting and decorating of the cake, you would need to have a cookbook that shows how to make leaves and flowers. Simply practice and before long, you will be making them perfectly. Remember, the cake does not have to be without any flaw. Do the best you can and then decorate the top with fresh-cut flowers, ribbon, or a cake topper.
