Hi there! Welcome to the Ma Maison blog. Stay a while and say hello!

Selecting the Wedding Cake of Your Dreams


Why have a cookie-cutter cake, when you can have the cake of your dreams to match the wedding of your dreams?  Your wedding cake can be a wonderful expression of your creativity.  Elegant or whimsical, the choices abound. 

  • If you a desire a tall, impressive cake that makes a real statement, ask your baker to frost a few layers of Styrofoam at the base of your cake.  You could have a seven, eight, or even nine-layer cake! 

  • A unique, elegant approach is to dress up a traditional white wedding cake with fresh flowers to match your bouquet. 

  • If you and your groom prefer the more natural look, however, you can leave your cake unfrosted & fill the layers with fresh seasonal berries.

  • Beyond frosted or unfrosted, there’s the shape of the cake to be considered. Instead of a traditional round cake, go for box-, hexagonal- or even petal-shaped cake layers.

  • That being said, feel free to think outside the box even further and have your cake coated in silver, gold or bronze metallic shades.

  • Speaking of unusual shades and shapes, how about surprising your groom with his own cake in a unique shape to match his alma mater or a favorite hobby…fish-shaped cake, anyone?  

  • Of course, you’re not limited to just one cake for your wedding, either.  A very popular trend in recent years is to have tiers of cupcakes for your guests with a small cake on top for you & your groom.  

  • And, if you and your groom have trouble deciding on exactly which type of cake you want for your wedding, you can have a variety of cakes in different flavors and frostings on display – allowing everyone to choose a slice of their favorite.
