Cakes are becoming more and more individualized. You have choices of shape, colors, flavors, styles, and decorations. Shapes no longer have to be round. You can choose to have a heart shaped cake, a square cake, a hexagonal shape, or a combination.
You can have the icing done in a variety of colors to match your wedding scheme, or choose to have it all white. You can choose from a variety of flavors beside just white cake. Carrot cakes and spice cakes are becoming more popular. You can also choose to have different layers with different flavors.
