Three Local Bakeries for an International Wedding Cake

Many couples look to the wedding cake to showcase their individual style, and rightfully so. But did you realize local bakers could create new-to-you cakes that embrace your affinity for international flair?

Leave it to the French to conceive the croquembouche —a tower of airy profiterole pastries carefully piled high into a cone shape, decorated with caramel threads that add a contrasting crunch. These sweet sculptures are rare here in the states, but Colerain Township’s Artrageous Desserts crafts them to order.

For an authentic south-of-the-border-style wedding cake, look no further than Fairfield-based Panaderia La Mexicana’s tres leches cake. Fittingly translated to “three milks,” this cake has evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk whipped into the batter, giving it a creamy, lighter-than-air texture, similar to angel food cake.

Pay homage to Cincinnati’s German-American roots with a double-butter coffee cake from hometown creamery and bakery Graeter’s. The legendary rich, buttery cake is crisp on the edges and soft in the center. It’s topped off with a healthy coating of savory almond paste and is finished with a light dusting of confectioners sugar.
