When I sat down finally to decide about the wedding cakes the first thought that came to my mind is not to spend a lot of money for purchasing a cake. Instead, I can go in for baking my own cake. This will give me dual benefits.
One is the pleasure of baking the cake for the ceremony to save money and get a unique design for the cake. This unique wedding cake designs would be a perfect choice to attract the attention of all the guests present at the ceremony.
In order to begin my search to get some wedding cake ideas, I referred to the various recipe books or online websites. Firstly, I began with the search for the recipe for the cake and then tried it on a very small scale before making the final attempt.
Once, all my attempts to prepare the cake, at home, were successful, I moved ahead with the thought of embellishing my cake. I took the help of the local baker as well some online sites. There are online tools where you can design your cakes. With the help of these tools, you can decide the shape, icing color, icing pattern and accessories. This will give you an idea about the appearance of the cake.
It was a really fun filled experience to design the wedding cake using these tools. I did a lot of trials till I landed up with the perfect design for my wedding cake. When I told my mother about my plan she asked me what was the backup plan I had, if in my busy schedule of planning my own wedding, I was not able to bake the cake. I told her that I would go for a simple wedding cakes then. Luckily, for me, she agreed to the plan.
It was a memorable journey for me to customize my own wedding cake. Hence, I wanted to share my wonderful experience with you all. It would be really very helpful for all the couples who are planning to bake their own cake
