Oh! Those wonderful wedding cakes! Kim
Sperl, of Bella e Dolce says that “your wedding
cake should be the focal point of the reception."
This popular cake style is one with an elegant look that
will leave you and your guests amazed that the flowers are
not only beautiful but also edible!
As you begin your search for the ultimate wedding cake, expect to see creations you never imagined. It could be designed as a stack of square boxes wrapped in white chocolate ribbons or devils food cake filled with chocolate mousse and glazed with shiny dark chocolate.
Not to be overlooked is the cake topper. Almost anything from blown glass to porcelain figures in the likeness of the bride and groom or a nosegay of fresh flowers to match the bouquets can be used. Perhaps the finishing touch might be a symbol of Mackinac such as a horse and carriage, a gazebo or lighthouse. Discuss your ideas with the baker who will work with you create the wedding cake of your dreams.
"It is important
to know that bringing a cake from home is not a practical
idea since cakes are too delicate to withstand a long hot
car trip, the ferry crossing and a taxi ride to the reception" explains Annie Lockwood from Annie's Cakes.
A local baker will create your cake and, best of all, deliver
and set it up at the reception. Delivery charges may
vary but are well worth it. Annie’s Cakes is a local
cake baker on Mackinac Island that is familiar with the
challenges of an Island Wedding.
No Mackinac Island reception is complete
without a small box of delicious Mackinac Island fudge as
a wedding favor. Since Mackinac Island and fudge are synonymous,
no treat is more treasured than a gift of fudge. Joann’s
Fudge or Murdick’s Fudge can arrange such a
treat for the reception or rehearsal dinner favors. Made
fresh daily, the individually boxed confections may be personalized
with the bride and groom’s names and delivered to
the reception. The shops offer a wide variety of fudge flavors
as well as other candies. Consider setting up a beautiful
“candy table” laden with flavors of fudge, chocolate
covered strawberries, almond clusters, and other delicious
treats not soon forgotten.
