Wedding cakes for the marriage ceremonies are mostly made by the beautician who is contacted to work on the bride for the wedding ceremony. The beauticians when learning the bride make up they lean about the wedding cake making too. The wedding cakes are normally staged on structures with multi tiers. They mostly come with two tier or three tires. There are 7 tiers wedding cakes too available and are very expensive.

The base cakes are meant for cutting purpose at the wedding ceremony and that is too will be selected by the cake maker and will be shown to the newly married couple. Most of the upper tier cake portions are made to match and decorate the whole cake set.
The cake maker herself will transport the cake to the venue and will take it back once the ceremony is over. This is because of the valuable cake structure parts.
