Quick tips on choosing the right cake
- bake it yourself only if you are 100 percent confident you can do it,
- if you intend to make the cake by yourself, bake it few times before you actually need it, just to get the grip, experimenting is a no-no for this event,
- before you decide how should a bridal shower cake look, consider the wedding theme (everything should be in tune), number of guests (nobody should be hungry at any party) and especially personal taste of the bride (she is the star of the party after all),
- ask around about possible alergies and other resevations (e.g. vegans don't eat gelatin which is made from animal bones and skin),
- in case you are the baker, make it one day ahead of the party,
- if you decide to order the cake, make sure it will arrive promptly, so double check the order,
- like everything else in life, even the smallest details make a huge difference: always spend some time on thinking about decorations and written wishes, discuss both, is possible, with at leas one more person, remember: the biggest events are often remembered by the simplest little things.
Don't forget to add a little extra
A cake is traditionally cut at the end of the shower party, but in latest years this rule is not so strict anymore and it is often served right after all the guests arrived. As we already said, details make a difference, so here are some lovely inexpensive items to help you add the final touch.
The power of the fruits
Thanks to the sweetness and colorfulness fruits can be of great help to match the theme of the wedding itself and bridal shower as well. If, for instance the leading color of the wedding theme is blue, it can be repeated with blueberries, love can be presented with little hearts, comosed of halves of strawberries, fruit slices can also be used to make a pattern related to the theme on invitations ...
A Bride is still the centerpiece of the party, so tiara is just right for her.
This wedding shower cake is fine example of personal approach. Friends and coworkers did their best to present as many details characteristic to the bride as possible. This can be very personal and fun project which can stay in memories for many years.

Favorite flavors of bridal shower cakes
Best tastes for weddingshower cakes
Today we are not limited at wedding cakes anymore and tastes for cakes at bridal showers can offer some really wild sensory experiments to all the guests. Only you can estimate how much they can handle.
Chocoholics are not satisfied with chocolate anymore, they expect real symphonies of different sorts of chocolate with chips, truffless, creams of different flavors, colors and textures.
White can still offer many surprises. If we stay at chocolate, there is of course white chocolate, we should not forget classic vanilla or cream, both working great in wide variety of combinations, but probably most popular taste at the momement is lemon with fresh and recognizable slightly sour accent.
If we are aiming at truly decadent solutions, cakes with crabs (think about beach themed party) or exotic spicy cake for Moroccan bridal shower theme can do the long lasting impression.
Don't forget how popular became cup cakes in last years!
