Cakes come in different sizes, shapes and flavours. They are now creative wonders and bakers are like master craftsmen, who can make any wish come true when it comes to cakes. A few years ago, this was not the scene with fewer options in cake flavours and designs. All you could order was a butter cream cake or a plain dry white cake that honestly was just not worth the calories. With plenty of options available, customers are also perplexed how to order the best tasting cake. We help you with a few tips.
Choosing the right flavour for the special occasion is critical and perplexing. Besides choosing the colour, size and tiers, choosing the flavour is also an important task. Before jumping into conclusion and deciding a flavour, it is necessary to do your homework and know how many types of relishing flavours are available other than conventional choices.
Taste the cake
Tasting is the best part of choosing a cake. You probably already have an idea of what the cake will look like on the outside, but it’s also important to know what it tastes like on the inside. If you’re going to have a combination of flavours, taste them all – don’t presume that chocolate cake will be good no matter what. However, it is better not to taste too many combinations or flavours at one sitting. It can be overwhelming to your taste buds and it can also be too rich for your tummy.
For weddings the first choice is a white cake. It is a classic cake and the good thing is you do not have to compromise on the flavour. You can choose a white almond cake or a simple vanilla cake. They have a hint of the nuts. Include white chocolate chunks inside the cake for a surprising taste.
Light coloured cakes
Light colours like light pink, lemon yellow and nutty green are flavoured like fruits depending on the colour. There is nothing wrong in choosing fruits for flavours. However, the downside is sometimes the flavour will not go well with the icing on the cake.
Chocolate cake is a popular choice for any event. You can order a dark or rich chocolate or truffle. Since chocolate is a universal favourite, the cake will certainly be appreciated by the guests.
These are also preferred by many. You can go for a marble cake and give flavoured batters in the form of swirls. The cake will look pretty with distinct colours. The cakes can be multi-layered, too with each tier having varied flavours.
Carrot cakes or fruit cakes
A carrot cake or fruit cakes are a good choice and gives a surprise taste for the guests. The cakes should have good icing layer and cream. However, do not expect all the guests to appreciate it. Cheesecakes and Tiramisu are also a popular choice and you can select a variety of flavours. If you are choosing a cheesecake, serve it with toppings of fruits and cream. It will look and taste wonderful.
