Cakes, cupcakes, cookies- we’re ready to talk about wedding dessert with Sara from Miss Sara’s Cakery! I have worked with Sara on a few styled shoots and several real weddings, and I am always blown away by her team’s beautiful custom designs. They always look incredible and taste even better! On our blog, Sara discusses favorite cake flavors, techniques, and designs, as well as tips for couples as they plan their wedding dessert. So let’s dive in!
What is your favorite cake flavor combination?
Sara: Our most popular wedding flavor combination is our White Amaretto Cream cake with vanilla buttercream filling. My personal favorite cupcake is our Cinnamon Roll flavor. It’s a creamy vanilla and cinnamon cake marbled together with a cream cheese frosting and a dust of cinnamon!
What’s your favorite technique to use on a wedding cake?
Sara: We specialize in working with fondant. We make a marshmallow white chocolate fondant from scratch. I love working with is because it tastes great and the design possibilities are endless! I still get so inspired by the possibilities.
What has been the most unique or favorite wedding cake you’ve designed?
Sara: I have so many favorites! It’s so hard to choose. I tend to gravitate towards the lace and ruffles, but I love any cake design that lets the couple’s personalities show through. We have done a lot of peek-a=boo cakes that are pretty and elegant wedding cake in the front and fun and colorful in the back. I also love doing trending cake designs. Every year, there is something new. I enjoy that every couple is different in their style. I get so excited to design a cake that speaks to them and to make it personal in some way. For example, if a couple chooses a lace cake, we might match the lace with the lace on the bride’s dress!
Miss Sara’s Cakery also creates amazing customized cookies. What has been a favorite way to incorporate cookies in the wedding day?
Sara: Cookies are a great way to offer a small favor while also adding some decor to your guest tables or dessert table. Cookies have come a long way in the last five years! They truly are little pieces of art. We frequently match cookie designs to an invitation, programs, or wedding decor, as well as match logos and color schemes. I like to offer a few shapes and designs. I think it’s more interesting when there are a few designs instead of 200 of the same cookie!
What’s your best tip for couples as they choose their wedding cake design?
Sara: My biggest tip for couples when picking out a wedding cake design is to take some time and look at different wedding cake styles. When you envision yourself walking into your reception, what do you want it to feel like? What is one word you would use to describe it? Then choose a cake design that will coincide with that vision.
What else do you want couples to know about Miss Sara’s Cakery?
Sara: I feel so honored and privileged to do wedding cakes. I love that I can design and create something special for them on such an important day in their life. It truly is an honor!
