One of the highlights of wedding planning is choosing the flavors and design of your cake. In order to make the experience even more personal and fun, Palermo's Bakery in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, recently expanded their space to include a "cake gallery," a private room where couples can view samples of different designs, customize their cake one-on-one with a cake designer—and yes, taste as many flavors as they'd like! Couples can also get a behind-the-scenes peek into the decorating room to see how cakes are put together. Palermo's even allows couples to check on their cake the night before their wedding to make any last-minute adjustments or changes.

Wedding Wisdom: When choosing your cake flavors, of course it's important to choose flavors you and your groom agree on, but also consider what your guests will like. While it might seem fun to go completely out-of-the-box, you want your guests to enjoy your cake as well.
