good cake is the centerpiece of any marriage, and understanding that,
GT has a collection of over 400 models available to choose from.
This page has a sample of some of them in their most popular
varieties. They can be traditional, flavour based, frosted,
fondant covered, smaller ones or cupcakes. Most brides ask
the planner for a sponge variety, which is 90% of the types
done in the Dominican Republic. This type is based on wheat
flour, sugar, eggs and a bit of baking powder.
Frosted cakes are the most popular, although lately most
weddings will demand fondant, a newer type of icing, due to
its silky elegance and better looking sculpting lines.
Flavors are based on strawberry, chocolate, vanilla,
caramel, orange or almond. Stack ones ( multi tiered )
are decorated with all sorts of motifs, sometimes associated
with the bride and groom's life. Mounted on pillars with
chromed bases, some are delicious works of art that truly
add to the event decoration.
