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 Brides.com executive editor Amy Elliott, Lauren Salkeld, associate editor at food site Epicurious.com
and Allison Braley, director of public relations at Conde Nast Digital and bride-to-be who is marrying this March.
