The wedding cake is often proudly and strategically placed during the wedding reception. Often towering way up into the heavens, it can compete with the bride as the ”center of attention” on her big day. This delicious work of art establishes a focal point that the other aspects of the reception can revolve around. For those who prefer a flare for the dramatic, the wedding cake can be wheeled into the room at the end of the reception, providing a ”grand entrance” for everyone to see. To many people this grand entrance will perhaps trigger memories of the bride who walked down the aisle earlier in the day.
Get a friend or relative to make your cake – this has the added benefits of potentially cutting costs, however if the person you are asking has never done it before you may be putting undue pressure and stress on them. Logistics can also become an issue, especially if you have also invited them to attend the wedding (as depending upon the cake a lot of setting up may need to be performed on the day which may jeopardise their attendance at the service). Another consideration is that unless the person is particularly experienced or skillful you may be somewhat limited in the style of cake that they are able to create (remember that trends have changed a lot over the years – so what was seen as fashionable in your parents or grandparents day is often not seen as being stylish today. However if you are a relaxed bride that doesn’t worry too much about the specifics and budget is a more significant issue then this is definitely an option to be considered.
Competence – Is your Wedding Cake Maker skillful enough to make the cake that you want and with the professional finish that you dream of? The easiest way to determine this is to take a look at examples of their work, nowadays most Cake Makers have websites which are a great way of reviewing a prospective bakers work and you can often get a sense of how experienced and professional they are from how they present themselves.
The alternative is to try and get to know your Cake Baker in advance. Initiate a rapport with them and if they have a blog or participate in social networking or writing articles (such as this one) then read what they are writing and get to know what drives them and whether their goals and personalities align with yours. You need to feel that they take pride in their work and that they will treat your cake with the importance and attention that it deserves and that they want to make your dreams a reality and not treat it as just another cake that they need to make in order to pay their bills.
