Sometimes when it comes to picking out a cake a little one on one time with your computer is just what the Cake Decorator prescribed. There are so many options you can use in creating your one of a kind cake. We at Sweet Cakes by Kare LOVE it when a client comes in with an overwhelming amount of print outs. This shows us that we have so many elements to work with. You can bring in a picture of your gown, center pieces, jewelry, art work, colors, and multiple cake design. Every tier can be customized you your very liking. This is what makes cake design so much fun. Sweet Cakes by Karen will even help you picture your design by doing a quick draw up.
Choosing a wedding cake is a very important (and delicious!) part of wedding planning. You want your cake to reflect your personal taste both literally and physically. A good wedding cake will have your guests talking for weeks . . . a bad one? Not so much. To ensure that you get only the best, today we have one of our favorite vendors, Sweet Cakes by Karen, here to give you her top three tips on how to choose the perfect wedding cake!
These days, there is no set standard to what your wedding cake has to look like. Many brides choose to incorporate their wedding colors into their wedding cake, or elements from their theme or wardrobe. At Sweet Cakes by Karen we strive to outfit every bride with a cake design that she will love. We want your cake to reflect who you are, and what you like. Wedding cakes that incorporate creative design elements will add a beautiful touch to any wedding. Here are a few examples of some of my favorite cakes Sweet Cakes by Karen has recently made:

Happy wedding cake tasting!
All cakes are charged by the number of servings, design, fillings, cake flavors, and delivery. The more detail and time that goes into the design the higher the price is per slice. This is why its nice to set up a consult to go over all the details of your cake.
If you are wanting a tall tiered wedding cake without the price an option to look into would be having one tier be real cake (the one cut into) and the rest fake made of Styrofoam (with a deposit, which would be given back with return or Styrofoam); then you can have a sheet cake in the back to serve to your guests.
It is important to remember your budget. We will go over your options and find what best suits your needs. Most tiered wedding cakes must be delivered and assembled on site to prevent a cake mishap. Delivery charges will be applied.
I found this great article on the web this morning and I couldn’t have said it in better words, so I thought I would share it with you.

I just love spring and summer. We have had so many fun brides and even grooms that have come into the shop lately. I always love to see it when a groom gets involved with the wedding cake even if it is just for the tasting. Tasting are always fun to bring a group to. Such as your mom, soon to be mother in law, groom, or even a best friend. We offer a wide variety of flavors to choose from. Cakes: Chocolate, White, Almond, Lemon, Spice, Carrot, Red Velvet, and requests. Fillings: Chocolate Fudge, Lemon Curd, Raspberry Fruit, Buttercream, and Cream Cheese.
Nothing says happy birthday like a Superman cake.
