Be Sure To Plan Ahead, Don’t leave your special wedding cake until the last minute. This is one of the most important things that you can remember. Whether you choose the baker down the road, a talented family member, or a pastry chef who specializes in these tasty masterpieces, if you plan well in advance you will be able to handle whatever obstacles might come your way. Some bakers require only a minimum notice, while many bakers are booked far in advance. It’s a shame to have that perfect cake of your dreams be ”cancelled” due to the fact you cannot allocate a baker’s time.
Just like there are wedding dress trends there are also wedding cake trends. When I got married, I knew that I wanted my cake to be on three different pedestals arranged askew, not in a row or on top of each other, I was bucking the 2005 wedding cake trend. Back then most of the cakes looked like round hats stacked on top of each other, complete with the bow. Color was just starting to get adventurous, back then. Also I knew after tasting several cakes randomly, that I wanted double chocolate/carob and my friend’s specialty butterscotch rum in the middle. I also, love fondant, so I knew that I wanted that as my frosting. Although I didn’t buck traditional altogether since my cakes were white with purple ribbon at the bottom of each layer with flowers to compliment my dress. Because of my allergy to milk, I knew that the top had to be a white cake and hopefully something that would keep for a year, or so I thought.
So you see how the ideas grow and how wedding cake themes are endless, personal and precious to each couple and their circle of friends and family. Traditional wedding cakes are the circular tiered type but these can be up-dated as a chic stack of diminishing squares. Another up-dating trend is embellishing tiered cakes with asymmetrical, cascading arrangements of vibrant, colorful fresh flowers. Cake Boss’ floral wedding cakes are leaders in this trend. Your baker needs to coordinate with your florist to mix and match the right blooms.
Reliability – An indication as to how reliable your Cake Maker is going to be can be gleaned from their reputation or testimonials and reviews that may be posted on Internet forums and review websites. However take any testimonials that a Cake Maker may offer you or display on their own website with a pinch of salt (they’re not likely to publisise any negative testimonials). Normally professionalism and reliability go hand-in-hand so try and assess how professional your cake maker is. Some Cake Makers take on so many bookings that a delay to one cake or an unexpected illness could jeopardise the delivery of your cake, however other cake makers deliberately take on fewer bookings in order to give themselves some flexibility.
