The best thing about being a cake designer is being able to know what will look the best, most brides and grooms will say they have no idea when it comes to the centrepeice of their reception.
Some decorators will let a bride choose whatever they think might look nice even if it won't. They should care about what it looks like, afterall it is their own work that is on display and good money that the couple has paid...
but some decorators are are not me. I WILL tell you. I like helping people choose the right combination, giving each cake the wow factor and I will tell you if your idea needs an overhaul.
