Cakespiration: Don't be a Copy Cake
Where should you start when exploring inspiration for you wedding cake? You have so many options when it comes to flavor and design!
One thing that is super EASY to do when selecting designs for any aspect of your wedding is to want EXACTLY what you see & love.
I am here to say DON'T PLAY YOURSELF like that sweetness!
Your wedding cake should be thought of a the main centerpiece of your wedding reception; and after your ‘I do’s’ cutting the cake is the first task you will complete as a married couple; sharing the cake with your guest has the significance of sharing the sweetness of your love with family and friends!
Your wedding cake should be a work of art that is made for you. Not something that is a copy of someone else's design.
Also a good cake artist won't let you make an exact copy of another cake... but that's another topic for another day.
When you find a design that you like, ask yourself: outside of changing the color,
how can we make this cake OURS?
Pinterest is a great place to begin when trying to figure out:
New wedding cake trends
But don't fall down the Pinterest rabbit hole with little to no understanding about what will actually work best for you in terms of design aesthetic and if the style of cake you think is cute will even
survive the weather & your venue.
Conditions: Seasons + Venue

Sitting perfectly in the gazebo.
What you may not know is the cake that you see was during an spring wedding with temps barely in the low 60s. It even might have been a faux cake.
That same Pinterest cake will become a goopy and sad version of itself for your outdoor or open air reception space in August, with temperatures bordering 100 degrees.
