Whenever there is a special occasion or event like a birthday, anniversary or wedding, it must feature a special dessert. And when it comes to celebrations there is no substitute for cake! If you have an upcoming special event and want to include cake on the menu, you also need to select the right design for the cake. Having a cake with a beautiful design makes a great impact on guests.
A few ways by which you could go about selecting the perfect design include:
Search for ideas: If the event is extra special you definitely need to start planning well in advance. Look online for the best cake designs that would fit in with your tastes and budget. There are hundreds of thousands of designs so you need to first decide the theme of the cake, to make it easier to find the appropriate designs. Also check the websites of local bakeries where they will have birthday cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes etc. as part of their portfolio.
Traditional vs. Cupcake: While there is a multitude of traditional cake designs, another very popular trend is that of cupcakes. While serving traditional cake offers an opportunity to be extremely creative, cupcakes, on the other hand, make it possible to cater to individual tastes of guests. You need to decide as to which of the two would be better for the occasion and which would also better suit your budget. The biggest benefit of choosing a traditional cake is the outstanding designs that it can be made into.
