Top 25 Wedding Cake Bakers in Seattle
There are few things I enjoy more than a beautiful – and delicious – wedding cake. While some couples have gone away with the traditional wedding cake and opted for alternative creative desserts like donuts and pies, there’s just nothing quite as timeless as a multi-tier wedding cake. As a Seattle wedding photographer, I personally love when couples personalize their wedding cake to their wedding day, whether that be with florals, unique piping of the icing, or even custom figures standing on the top-tier.
If you’re recently engaged – congratulations! – and are currently in search of the best cake baker for your wedding in Seattle, look no further.
