Wedding Cakes are often the focal point of Wedding Receptions. They come in all shapes, sizes and flavors. Choosing the right taste and look can be tricky, and should not be taken lightly, but is also one of the best parts of planning a Wedding.
Flavors of cakes is limited only by the imagination and pallette of the Bride and Groom. Start first with cakes you love. It can be something traditional you loved as a child, or a cake you enjoyed together as a couple. Most bakeries will have at least 20-30 to choose from, some are known for a flavor they specialize in. The great thing about Wedding Cakes is there are layers, so you can choose more than one, hopefully flavors that complement one another. Arrange a tasting to see what best appeals to you.
The design of the cake can vary also. From the traditional to grand to off the charts, Wedding Cakes designs can be a fun aspect of the overall reception. The look and feel of the Wedding Reception and Wedding Ceremony are a great inspirations to design. Carrying on a theme, color or aspect of the Event can be be part of the design process. Do some research before meeting with your Baker. With Google, Pinterest, Facebook and Websites there are plenty of resources at your fingertips. Ofcourse meeting with your Baker will give you a chance to see what they have done in the past and are capable of making for your Weddding.
In the end have fun with picking out your cake and your Wedding Day as a whole. It’s part of sharing your love with your new spouse and the start of your life togehter!
Wild about Wedding Cakes!

Historic Kent Manor Inn in the Fall
If Kent Manor Inn was the clue in a word association game, “romance” would be the answer. I was there for an evening jazz concert on the lawn, but even at dusk, maybe especially at dusk, the wonderful water view, acres of beautifully landscaped grounds was unexpected perfection.
My first sight of Kent Manor Inn was at the end of a long, tree-lined lane. Just after sundown, with every window of the manor house lighted, it was hold-your-breath beautiful. Inside, the atmosphere was both elegant and inviting. Although I was only there for an evening, I was able to see the Atrium, one of the Inn’s lovely dining rooms. The windows faced the water and I imagined the experience of sunset and an exquisitely prepared meal in that space. There are three others, some with Italian marble fireplaces, to warm a fall or winter meal. My favorite discovery on the grounds was the glass-enclosed Garden House. It looks out over a lush green lawn and beyond to Thompson’s Creek. What a beautiful place for a water-side wedding and reception!
Kent Manor Inn is located in Stevensville, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The main house holds 24 rooms, each one radiating “the warmth, intimacy and attention to detail that’s expected of an historic country manor inn.” Marble fireplaces, sumptuous four-poster beds, window seats and porches add to the Inn’s romantic charm.
It doesn’t take a wildly romantic imagination (such as my own) to craft a four-part romantic play with Kent Manor Inn as the setting: the introductory first dinner date, perfect wedding, festive reception and grand finale wedding night!
