The sweet spot at nearly every wedding, the cake has to taste as good as it looks. First, all eyes (and many cameras) are on the bride and groom as they cut that first slice, and later, everybody digs into the much-anticipated dessert. What’s more, tradition dictates that newlyweds celebrate their anniversary by tasting the top tier, which has spent the last year in the freezer — why not make sure it’s something you’ll look forward to eating?

Whether you’re dreaming of a classic white-tiered vanilla cake, or a ganache-topped, berry-filled confection is more your style, local bakers boast a wide variety of expertise and talent when it comes to desserts and edible favors. Milwaukee-area couples can even find bakeries that cater to special dietary needs, such as gluten-free and vegan. Feast your eyes on these vendors!

By the end of high school, Ellie Martin Cliffe was completely enamored of journalism, so she chose the most logical college major possible: anthropology. Disappointed by the minimal emphasis on writing and editing, she changed tracks and earned a comm degree from Carroll College. Ellie has since tackled many facets of the field including books, magazines and the Web at places like The Knot and Reader's Digest. She now works full time in book publishing, and is thrilled to get her wedding fix with When she isn’t wielding her (red) pen, Ellie can be found in the garden, at any concert that showcases a fiddle, playing pub trivia or in the kitchen. She and her husband live in Riverwest with their hedgehog, Guinness, and grapefruit tree, Sprout.
