Selecting the right bakeries and wedding cakes is one of the more fun parts of planning your New Orleans, Louisiana celebration. Do you want a dessert layered with edible Mardi Gras beads? Are you looking for sugared mini beignets? New Orleans offers a wide range of delectable options, and your imagination is the limit.
Wedding cakes can be made in any style or flavor. Are you a fan of the café au lait at Café du Monde? Ask New Orleans bakeries how they can duplicate the flavor in wedding cake form. Whether you're designing a multi-tiered cake or a flat sheet cake, you can have whatever flavors and decoration you desire.
Your dessert should match the tone and reason for your celebration. If you're throwing a graduation party for a recent graduate of Tulane University, for example, you can serve cupcakes in olive green and sky blue icing to match the school colors. If you love visiting New Orleans's Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, incorporate some butterflies (created out of icing, of course) into your choice of birthday cakes. New Orleans bakeries are used to taking special requests, and will gladly work with you to get the design just right.
If you're interested in designing a unique wedding cake (or wedding cakes; many New Orleans couples are embracing the trend of serving more than one special dessert), be sure to start visiting bakeries as soon as possible. You'll want to leave plenty of time for the bakeries to create the cake, as well as to schedule discussion meetings and tastings. Don't forget to bring sketches of the wedding cakes you're envisioning, or photos of similar wedding cakes that you admire, so the bakeries can match your vision exactly.
