An engagement will be one of the most important and auspicious moments in the life of almost every person. After all, it marks the beginning of a beautiful journey for an eternity along with your life partner. Hence, people are hunting for unique and out-of-the-box ideas to spruce up the pre-wedding function.
One of the recent trends that are overtaking the engagement party ideas is an engagement cake. Most people would have heard about a wedding cake that is considered as the symbol of sweetness and love in the life of a couple. An engagement cake, on the other hand, is used to celebrate their commitment and love towards each other. In addition, it marks the beginning of their wedding plans.
It is not a new thing to use specialty cakes to lift up the sweetness of events such as birthdays, graduation, baby showers, etc. Nowadays, this has become a trend in engagement parties as well. This sweet-treat is, in fact, the center of attraction for most engagement parties these days.
You may use things like bead embellishments, candles, elaborate décors, amazing patterns, whimsical figurine toppers, etc. in order to beautify an engagement cake. Needless to say, there are different types of pre-wedding cakes that are perfect to define the personality of different couples. You may customize your engagement dessert as well. In fact, there is no set rule when it comes to choosing the type of cake for your engagement party.
Types of Cake
You can see mainly two types of cakes at engagement parties: formal centerpiece cakes and fun celebratory cakes. As the name indicates, a formal cake is used to spruce up formal engagement parties. You may go for an elaborate cake if you have some VIP or town guests. Similarly, this is also a great option if you plan to cater your party.
When it comes to fun celebratory cakes, it may be themed to match or complement your pre-wedding party. Else, simply decorate your engagement cake using bright colors along with proposal date, couple’s name, anticipated wedding name, etc. It is to be noted that most of the fun celebratory engagement cakes are sheet cakes since they are more economical options. Besides, the families can opt to bake the engagement party cake for the couple of honor as well.
An important point that you must consider here is to make sure that your engagement cake does not mimic a wedding cake. For this, you must take care when it comes to the formality, cake cutting style, size, decadence, etc., of your engagement cake. Nevertheless, your engagement cake must coincide with the tone of your pre-wedding party.
