The Heart Shaped Wedding Cake

A Heart Shaped Wedding Cake can be a beautiful expression of love at your wedding reception.

What could be a more better expression of your love on your special day than a wedding cake shaped as a heart.

If you have your "heart" set on this kind of cake, you are not alone. They are very popular and there are many ways to "have your cake and eat it too".

First step is to meet with your professional baker or baker friend who is going to be making your cake. At this point in time, you should have a final count of the number of guests attending your wedding reception.

This is an important number to give to your baker so that he/she can figure out just how much cake you are going to need to feed all your "sweet toothed" guests.

Once you have all that sorted out, you can look into how you want your cake to look. Besides being heart shaped, I mean.

If you are going to need a few layers to satisfy all of your guests, you could choose to tier them, add columns or even have them on their own separate cake stands.

And don't forget filling and flavors (can't forget those!)

There are many other different ways to incorporate "hearts" into your wedding cake besides shape.

You can use the filling of the wedding cake to be in the shape of a heart or you can use hearts as decoration on the outside of your cake.

Here are some of the heart shaped wedding cakes I found on a great site called Cake Central.
