Expert cake taste test


Alexandra Grablewski

Wedding cakes today run the gamut from traditional treats to over-the-top works of art. While we like admiring all varieties, sometimes we forget the reason why we all love cake—the taste! Here we've compiled a panel of experts to taste five different cake flavors provided by Nicole Friday, food writer and caterer for The Cupcake Craze. The panelists include executive editor Amy Elliott, Lauren Salkeld, associate editor at food site and Allison Braley, director of public relations at Conde Nast Digital and bride-to-be who is marrying this March.

Read what they have to say about pairing the flavors with dinner menus, how they match up to your party based on your wedding's season and their all-over crowd appeal.
