.01 – The Design is Cohesive

“You’ve already added the wow-factor to your ceremony using thoughtful and exquisite details and those elements of luxury are carried over to your reception. Your cake should make a statement too. Whether it’s ruffled, delicate sugar flowers, exquisite draping, or modern textural elements -You don’t want to have fabulous decor and a cake that is overly simple that will detract from the look and feel of the affair. Brides who can honor the creative process of crafting a supremely detailed cake will not be disappointed if they choose a fine art wedding cake designer.” – Randi Smith, Founder, Sugar Euphoria

.02 – There’s a Focus on the Details

“I want to point out that a fine art cake doesn’t have to be a towering confection -it can be a small cutting cake for the couple or a 10 tier cake that stands over 4’ tall. It’s not about the size, but the attention to details and craftsmanship.” -Randi Smith, Founder, Sugar Euphoria

.03 – Creativity is Endless

“Identify a design element that you want to highlight. Maybe it’s the gorgeous watercolor pattern from your custom invitation suite. Or maybe it’s a piece of art that is hanging in the venue. Whatever if it is, make sure that your cake designer focuses on that particular element, so as not to make the cake too busy. For this cake, we pulled inspiration from the Moroccan tile pattern used throughout the wedding design.” Randi Smith, Founder, Sugar Euphoria

.04 – They Start the Design with Purpose

“Consider one or two words to describe your wedding and translate to the cake. Will your wedding have a modern feel? Consider having tiers of varying heights to add visual interest. Would you describe it as a romantic? I suggest incorporating soft sugar scrolls, beautiful sugar lace work, and a structural floral structure.” Randi Smith, Founder, Sugar Euphoria

.05 – Your personality can show through

“Having a unique and artistic cake allows for it to create a design moment and focal point to highlight at your wedding! Couples can show off their personalities and even weave in designs that reflect their younger years. Our Bride grew up in Oklahoma and like a true Southern girl she loves pearls. In an ode to her hometown roots, she had her cake designed by Sweet Lady Jane to look like it was artistically covered in pearls. It was simple yet made a big statement that had special symbolism!” -Erin Sprinkel, Co-Owner of Sterling Social

“The wedding cake is a focal point of your reception! It allows a couple to incorporate elements from their stationery design, wedding dress, wedding colors, flowers, and other design elements to create a piece of art for guests to ooh and ahh over as they enter the reception. In this example, the couple incorporated their wedding crest and hand-painted blue florals from their stationery suite, and the cake designer crafted little sugar lemons and florals to perfectly accent the cake.” -Stephanie Sadowski, SRS Event
