And Now for the Cake!
For billionaire Donald Trump and his most recent bride, Melania Knauss, a wedding celebration wouldn’t be complete without a showstopper cake. The couple went with a 5-foot tall, seven-tiered orange Grand Marnier chiffon cake with a light Grand Marnier butter-cream filling. The paltry pastry weighed more than 50 pounds, was garnished with 3,000 white-icing roses and probably cost its weight in gold.
In a nutshell, if you want to get the perfect cake for the perfect day, you’ll need to “plan ahead, know what you like and take your time to find the right chef to fit your needs,” says Michelle Lunde of Delicate Decadence Cake Boutique.
Maybe you should consider looking at the magazines or website over a glass of wine with your fiancé. The cake is often a reflection of the two of you, so make sure you are on the same page when it comes to the design, flavor and size.
Don’t worry too much about picking a cake based entirely on what might appeal to guests, says Gretel-Ann Fischer of Fischer’s Fancies.
