The Wedding Cake: The Second Queen of the Ceremony

As the wedding cake is an essential part of the wedding reception in Italy, we will be honored to walk you through our fascinating, ancient traditions. After the bride obviously, it is the queen of the event. Like any self-respecting queen, it will arrive at the very end to close the party. Because of all the cultural codes behind it and the endless options the Italian pastry tradition offers, choosing the perfect wedding cake can be challenging. Sometimes overwhelming. But we are here to make you discover an entire world by helping you answering this (apparently) simple question: which cake should you choose when you decide to get married in Italy?

How to choose the wedding cake of your dreams?

The cut of the wedding cake is one of the highlights of the wedding reception: an unforgettable performance we would be proud to help you with directing. But first, the sweets! The choice is delicate: it should reflect both the theme of your wedding, the venue, your wedding dress, and your personal tastes. You may be more into a decorative and elaborate cake style (like in the United States, in Great Britain or in Brazil) or a minimal style, like the latest trends, suggest.

Thanks to our worldwide network of luxury bakers, after our brief, we will be pleased to handle you a selected list of Master Pastry’s portfolios. This, in order to help you explore which one is the most appealing to you and, at the same time, it suits the overall wedding. With the chosen Master Pastry, we may support you in picking the right shape (round, squared, asymmetrical?), the tastiest base (buttercream or fondant?), the perfect decoration and color. All of this, making sure everything blends together harmoniously in a delicate, elegant balance. The second-to-last act before the W day? The tasting of all the selected choices, in a luxurious, unique location.

Taste The Unique Italian Wedding Cake Traditions

If you plan to get married in Italy tho, we would suggest choosing within a wide array of cakes and sweets according to your tastes for a more inclusive Italian experience. This means both an exploring both the pastry traditions and the peculiar raw materials every Italian region has to offer.  For example, have you ever heard about the local hazelnuts from le Langhe? If you wish to get married in such magical place, pretty close to Turin, maybe the “Torta alle Nocciole” (cake with hazelnuts) is your best option. Or, the very same hazelnuts may be an unmissable ingredient for a recipe you wish to bring from your own country. If the destination is Venice or the popular Ville Venete area, the tiramisù cake or the “Fregolotta, can be considered. Or the typical chocolate Caprese cake for your wedding overlooking the Mediterranean on the eponym island. We will be delighted to offer you an Exclusive Path of Taste through the best Italian Master Pastries and to help you explore all your different options.
