Before there was the internet there were wedding fairs. These seem to be more common overseas, but Australia has wedding expo and other similar events. These live events still have a few advantages over the internet because we can actually feel the dress fabric, smell the flower bouquet, and (best of all) taste the cake samples.
Of course this is one of the best parts about planning the wedding. If there is a guilty pleasure, or a reason to justify one, then tasting samples of wedding cakes is it.
There are two broad factors in choosing a cake- the taste and the décor. More than a few people only worry about the appearance of the décor. This will be photographed and remembered long after the cake has been eaten. But then again, there is usually no reason why a cake cannot have both taste and style. As long as the cake is strong enough to support the décor there shouldn’t be a problem.
Perhaps we should start with finding a tasty cake, and then find the right way to decorate it.
While we cannot taste a cake we see on the computer screen (Rice cakes on a picture as the Koreans’ say) we can use the internet to see a lot of good décor ideas with minimal time and effort. This is a great way to find the right ideas, with the added bonus of using Google and search terms to narrow things down to the right options.
Use the cake shops, wedding expos and fairs to sample a few tastes. And more importantly, to connect to the right vendors, both for catering and otherwise. A few company cards from the fair can make all the difference.
