Personally I prefer the mud cake over a butter or sponge cake for a wedding. They are just so popular these days and the flavor choices are endless. These cakes keep fresh longer and they cut easily. At the wedding, small slices can be slipped into cake bags. If you are purchasing a wedding cake you can discuss your flavor choices with my friend Karen Hill of Wedding Cake Art Sydney and she will offer you samples to taste. http://weddingcakeart.com.au/ If you join one of Karen's cake decorating classes, she provides cake for you to decorate. Contact her for details.
