Let them Eat Cake..........................

One of the best things about planning your wedding is the cake tasting. The thought of tasting tons of sugary, moist, sweetness is a dream come true for most brides and grooms. Do your research and find quality bakers in your area. Check around with other brides, visit bridal shows and check out bakers websites. Many bakers offer special days for brides only - where their shops are closed except for bridal appointments.  Make sure to grab your future groom (trust me - you won't have any problem getting him there) and let the tasting begin.

Many bridal couples have questions about the frosting types. Here's a little help for you.......

Ganache:
A rich creamy chocolate filling made of chocolate and cream, used for confections such as the filling of truffles




Fondant:


An icing made out of gelatin, confectioners sugar and water. A very smooth and maleable icing that dries hard. This icing is also called rolled fondant because it has to be rolled on to cakes.


Buttercream:


The most popular wedding cake icing is made of butter, confectionery sugar and milk.
