1. Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting
Red velvet cake is one of the most traditional wedding desserts. It offers a rich, chocolatey flavor with vanilla undertones. It can be decorated with white frosting and sprinkles if desired.
The frosting for red velvet cake can be either cream cheese or buttercream. Cream cheese frosting is typically preferred because it gives it a smoother texture and makes it easier for the decorations to stick to the cake. Neither frosting is overpowering, so the flavors and taste of the cake itself will shine through.
2. Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting
Many people opt for delicious wedding cakes, but there are few who go for chocolate wedding cakes, which are delicious and can be perfectly paired with chocolate frosting. Chocolate wedding cakes are as delicious as they are beautiful. They are highly preferred by couples who want to have a dessert that will stand out from the rest of their wedding menu. You can give your guests something sweet to eat while celebrating your big day.
3. Vanilla cake with vanilla frosting
Vanilla cake is a type of cake that uses vanilla flavoring in its batter or frosting. The vanilla flavoring can be artificial or natural. Some types of cakes use natural vanilla, such as Mexican vanilla. This vanilla is more expensive, but it gives the cake a rich, sweet flavor.
The frosting on a vanilla cake can be plain vanilla, or it can be flavored with other types of flavoring.
Picking your wedding cake flavor is a big deal. You want it to be delicious, but more importantly, you want it to be memorable.
