Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wedding Cake

Imagine celebrating your wedding in Florence, a city where art, history, and love create a magical atmosphere. This article offers you a guide to choosing the perfect wedding cake that reflects your love, combining Italian tradition and innovation, with advice on where to find it in Florence.

Traditional Italian Cakes

Italy is famous for its rich culinary tradition, which is also reflected in its wedding cakes. Millefoglie, with its delicate layers of puff pastry, pastry cream, and fresh fruit, represents a timeless classic that enchants with its simplicity and elegance. Each slice contains the history and art of Italian sweet-making, inviting not only to taste but also to participate in the creation of this culinary work of art.

To add a touch of spectacle and magic to your special day, you can experience the unique show cooking of the wedding cake. Under the fascinated eyes of your guests, master pastry chefs will bring your dream cake to life. With skillful and precise gestures, they will transform high-quality ingredients into a masterpiece of taste and beauty, making the cutting of the cake an unforgettable moment of your wedding in Florence.


Tradition Meets Innovation

In the Italian wedding panorama, modern couples are increasingly turning to sweets that marry innovation and design. Among the most popular choices, you can find the Naked Wedding Cake, which seduces with its simple elegance and the enhancement of natural flavors, often decorated with fresh fruit and edible flowers. To add a touch of Mediterranean freshness to your wedding, consider the Lemon Wedding Cake just as Megan Markle and Prince Harry chose for their wedding: with a lemon curd filling and lemon slice decorations it becomes an elegant creation with delicate citrus notes, perfect for summer celebrations.

How to Choose the Wedding Cake

Reflect On the Style of the Wedding: The cake should be an extension of the wedding style, so consider the location, the theme, and its colors.

Consider the Tastes of Guests: Opt for flavors that can delight a wide range of palates, especially if you have international guests.
