Adding flavors to each tier might be an extra cost, so make sure this is one of your questions when picking out the right cake maker.

Many now offer choices like raspberry filling, mimosa, mint and so many more! Ask your baker what are their cake/filling combos and which ones are the most requested. Have them include a few of their popular choices when you to your cake testing.
Some bakers like to get really creative with their cakes and might change things up by adding some liqueurs like Gran Marnier in their batter. According to Perfect Wedding Guide, it’ll take any regular cake and make it that much better, which will definitely make it a cake to remember. Other great liqueurs that can be used in batters are Chambord and its raspberry flavor, Creme de Cassis with its blackberry flavor and even Chocolate liqueur!

Fondant isn’t exactly liked by many, but it does make for beautiful cakes. However, backers can make amazing cakes using butter cream for the frosting. As for examples of both to see what you personally like best.

What beautiful cakes you’ve pictured here. My friend is also a baker, and she makes some of the most amazing things with fondant. One of the cakes she made looked exactly like a running shoe, down to the weave on the laces. There are lots of fun flavors and fillings to choose from these days, but I’ll take chocolate cake with chocolate frosting any time.
Love all the cakes you picked and such great tips! I just met with my cake designer and it really helped that I had pictures to show of some ideas I was leaning towards. Thanks for sharing!
