Deciding on which type of cake you want may leave you feeling overwhelmed. Availability of thousands of flavors doesn't help either. Then after figuring out what you want the cake to taste like you also have to decide the design of the cake- naked, frosted, or fondant?
Keeping a few factors in mind such as your budget, the weather, and the conditions of your venue is a good idea. Certain elements, like delectable flowers made of sugar, are more expensive than others due to being more labor intensive. You may be getting married outdoors in the middle of Summer here in the South- buttercream is not your friend in this scenario (unless you are aiming for melty-gooey cake).
So, if you're still not sure about the style of your wedding cake, you're in luck. After you've sorted out all the above mentioned details, it's time to choose the perfect style for your cake. And we are here to nudge you in the right direction.

If you mostly chose option ‘a’, then you are clearly a Bohemian spirit. In keeping with the theme, your Boho wedding cake should be naked, with the sole focus on the layering and fillings.
If you mostly chose option ‘b’, then your style tends to be more Classic. This style of cake is simple yet elegant. The design of the cake is focused on one element like a motif or small flowers, while the rest of the cake is done with clean finish of white.
If you mostly chose options ‘b’ and ‘c’, then your style is Glamorous. These kinds of weddings have stunning details and you can incorporate that into your wedding cake. A humongous cake with tall tiers, imperial-looking metallic detailing, and elaborate piping will be perfect for you.
If you mostly chose options ‘c’ and ‘d’, then your style runs toward a Rustic theme. A rustic wedding cake should feel delightfully fresh and have a farm-to-table aesthetic. The design should be simple with elements of greenery here and there, and the ingredients should be fresh.
So there you are. Did you find out what your perfect wedding cake should look like?
