The wedding cake can be the centerpiece of the reception, often serving as a focal point of the room before the couple makes their grand entrance and is the traditional finishing touch to the event. It should reflect the theme and tone of the reception, the season, the flower arrangements, and the menu. Your cake should fit the space too—if your reception is in a grand ballroom, consider increasing the cake’s stature with columns between the tiers. Generally, three tiers will serve 50 to 100, and you’ll likely need five layers for 200 or more guests. The cost of your cake will depend on the design and the number of servings. Depending on how popular the baker you are interested in are, as well as what time of year you’re getting married, meeting, and booking your wedding cake may be one of the appointments you want to take care of early on in your planning process. Very popular months tend to book up far in advance, if you wait, you may miss out on the baker you really want!
