There’s an infographic for everything these days – choosing a flavor of wine, how to make a pizza, even a periodic table of alcohol and a Thanksgiving etiquette infographic exist. So it should come as no surprise there are infographics on how to help you build your dream wedding cake.


The infographic guides you on choosing a wedding cake, from shape to flavors to design.

You start out basic with the general shape – round, square, heart – and then move on to type and filling where things get a bit more complicated.  From fruitcake to cheesecake to chocolate, the possibilities are endless. The infographic does provides some guidance as to which filling goes best with what you’re doing; for example, if you’re having a summer wedding go with a zingy lemon sorbet. Want to be luxurious? Go for Belgian chocolate.  Next, decorations range from icing and gems to shimmer and piping. Last but not least, cake toppers -- an actual photograph of the two of you made out of something edible or the infamous plastic figurines that are meant to look like you and your betrothed. Take your pick.


As Franck in Father of the Bride explains, it’s the cake that more often determines what kind of wedding that you’re going to end up having. So check out the infographic, and choose the cake wisely.
