Event Design | Designing Your Cake

If you're looking to tie in all the details, don't forget the cake! I absolutely love a show-stopping confection at the reception, and when Ken of MiraBella Confections dropped off this piece of work at our photo shoot last fall, I was thrilled! Unfortunately, for this project, the cake was inedible, however Ken's cakes taste as good as they look and I'm happy that my husband orders all of our personal cakes from Ken.

When talking to MiraBella Confections about the shoot, I shared the invitation design, and requested the cake was square, but other than that, I had no idea what Ken would design. I was happy he used the invitation design on the cake - a perfect compliment to all of the day-of paper products, including the escort cards, dinner menus, table numbers, and lamps used as centerpieces.

Cake designs range from simple to intricate, and the price will reflect that. Just like the florist, sharing your budget with your baker at the beginning of the process will be helpful. And if cake is important to you, makes sure it takes as good as it looks!

I love how well the cake coordinates with the invite. Stunning combo of colours as well!

Thanks, Andrea! Ken from MiraBella is the best cake baker in Grand Rapids - maybe even West Michigan - and he never disappoints :)

We kept our simple, and it will play off of our invite design - only made sense to do so!
