Let Them Eat (Wedding) Cake!

Maybe Marie Antoinette never actually said that, but Sugarland does! One of the most important decisions you'll make as a bride - after finding the perfect dress, of course - is selecting your wedding cake. Your dessert is the centerpiece of the reception and while it can be simple, funky, traditional or contemporary, it should make a statement while still being scrumptious!

When selecting your wedding dessert, consider these simple factors:

Wedding Cake Design
Don't be afraid to be creative when choosing your cake. How about a wedding cake decorated with edible metallic details, or one with delicate lace icing and appliqués? Or, maybe you'd like a gorgeous multi-tiered cake with fondant ruffles for texture. One of the latest trends is a cake with chevron details. The clean, zig zag pattern can be bold or subtle, but either way, it will surely get your cake noticed.
On the other hand, maybe you don't want one big cake at all! More brides are choosing individual cupcake wedding cakes, either as a pull apart or a tower, letting each guest enjoy his or her own personal serving. Cake pops are also increasingly popular, as are wedding pies and tiered whoopee pie cakes. Want to go more off the grid? Think creamy cannolis, dessert shooters or single servings of premier ice cream or gelato. Whatever you can imagine, Sugarland can create.

Tastiness Of Your Cake
Have you ever tasted a beautifully designed cake, only to find it was a bit…dry? Sugarland's classically trained pastry chefs and artists prepare cakes fresh-- never, ever frozen--using the best local and organic ingredients available, ensuring moist desserts and a happy mouth.

Flavor Selection Options
Don’t stop at innovative cake designs, be bold with your flavor selections! In addition to traditional chocolate and vanilla flavors, you might like a mimosa or vanilla cognac cake, tangy lemon or crème brulee, just to name a few! Even better, if you have a multi-tiered cake, why not have different flavors in each tier? With over 1500 flavor, filling and icing combinations, your dream dessert is only a free consultation away at Sugarland

Your wedding dessert is a delectable reflection of your style and personality. Let Sugarland's memorable, delicious creation make your special day even sweeter.
