Abbey Zegar (Executive Pastry Chef, Sugar & Spice Cakes) gives expert video advice on: What are the most popular flavors of wedding cake today?; Can I add liquor to my wedding cake? and more...
Can I have my wedding cake cooked with heart-healthy ingredients?
Absolutely you can have heart-healthy ingredients in your wedding cake. Ask your baker to substitute whole eggs with egg substitute. Instead of oil, request using apple sauce to enhance the flavor and make the cake moist.
Will a heart-healthy wedding cake still taste good?
A heart-healthy wedding cake will definitely taste good. In fact, your guests won't know the difference.
Does my wedding cake need to be white or yellow cake?
Traditionally, white wedding cakes are used, but it's your day so you can choose any flavor and any color that you want on your wedding cake. The wedding cake says who you are and what you like to eat, so it doesn't have to be white or yellow.
If I want fruit filling, can I still have an elaborately decorated wedding cake?
You can have an elaborately decorated cake filled with fruit filling that's healthy and tasty. The fruit filling has no effect on the design whatsoever.
What are the most popular flavors of wedding cake today?
The most popular flavors of wedding cakes incorporate either rum or Grand Marnier, or Kahlua soaked in the cake. This brings out the flavor of the cake and it's non-traditional.
Can I add liquor to my wedding cake?
You can add liquor to your wedding cake, absolutely. You can use Grand Marnier, rum, or Kahlua.
Can I have a different flavor in each tier of my wedding cake?
You can have a different flavor in each tier of your wedding cake. In fact, I've done weddings where the top tier is the favorite flavor of the bride and groom and the second tier or middle tier is the favorite flavor of the mom or the dad, and the bottom tier is something that everybody likes. For example, marble and cream cheese for the bottom tier of the wedding cake, chocolate and raspberry for middle tier, and then the top tier could be a carrot cake.
