Minneapolis has a proud history as a flour milling powerhouse, and retains the nickname "Mill City" to this day. As a lucky host or couple seeking bakeries and wedding cakes for that perfect special occasion dessert, you can't go wrong with Minneapolis bakeries. Whether you want a multi-level masterpiece wedding cake with a different flavor cake for each tier, or you're looking for maroon and gold cupcakes to celebrate your University of Minnesota graduation, Minneapolis bakeries can whip up a confection to suit your tastes.
Minneapolis wedding cakes come in all shapes and sizes. Consider matching wedding cakes to the theme of your wedding. For example, if you and your fiancé are fans of Minneapolis's natural attractions, you can design your wedding cake with cascading layers of icing to mimic the natural beauty of Minnehaha Falls. Look through bakeries' portfolios of previously-designed wedding cakes to get a sense of what designs are possible. Don't be afraid to ask multiple bakeries for their ideas; when you find a baker with a sense of aesthetics and taste to match your own, you'll know immediately. You may even decide you want two wedding cakes, or an additional groom's cake, so you can bring more than one idea to life.
Weddings aren’t the only reason to commission gorgeous specialty desserts. If you're celebrating a landmark anniversary or birthday, visit a few Minneapolis bakeries in search of special birthday cakes. Whatever the guest of honor enjoys as a favorite hobby, from sailing to stamp-collecting, can be featured in edible form. Just be sure to agree upon detailed sketches before commissioning a custom-designed cake from any bakery to avoid misunderstandings and misplaced effort.
