One area of special consideration when selecting a wedding cake is whether you know of any wedding guests who may be allergic to any life threatening food allergies most commonly being peanut allergy. To be safe, many couples will choose a nut free cake. If you are aware of a wedding guest who indeed does have an allergy speak to your baker and request a nut free environment for the baking procedure of your wedding cake.
