Playing Dress Up with Cake
Whether it’s a wedding, milestone celebration or other monumental occasion, once you’ve taken the time to select your confectionery centre piece be sure to take care on its display and play a little dress- up with your cake.
It is quite likely that a cake will be on display before it gets cut and consumed so be sure to shine the proper spotlight on the star of your sweet table. First off, ensure that you have a designated cake table that allows for the most elegant presentation possible. You may wish to use a square or rectangular table to highlight a linear cake whereas a round table presents a cohesive look for a round cake.
Once the table has taken shape, drape it with exquisite fabrics using colorful or graphic motifs. Consider florals to match the cake, encouraging a collaborative effort between cake designer and florist. When it comes to cake displays, start from the bottom and move your way up. The cake base or stand is one of the most important items to consider as it shows off your cake, making it a significant focal point. When choosing a base, size is critical as it needs to be large enough (and sturdy enough) to accommodate your cake. Consider the style of the base as well, do you want a pedestal or a plate? Will there be other items displayed on the table along with the cake? If so, you may wish to coordinate diverse stands with serving plates to create a symmetrical look. Be sure to choose something that draws attention to the cake rather than drawing attention away from it, the cake should remain the focal point.
Top things off, once again with something that is complimentary. Cake toppers have evolved greatly from kitschy plastic figurines. These days anything goes; an heirloom piece such as a fine porcelain antique, finely sculpted chocolate shapes, marzipan molded fruits or flowers, cascading fondant ribbons, fresh blossoms, or monograms, names or phrases die-cut out of materials such as mirrored glass and wood accented with crystals and sparkles.
Choosing the right display for your cake creation is an important finishing touch that will make a statement and compliment the overall theme of your event.
