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.
Okay, by now, you know, I do research on trivial/little known traditions, so let me tell you why, supposedly we are to keep the top of the cake for a year and then eat it with your spouse on your one year anniversary. You know I had to know. One, because it seems so random. Two, our cake did not make it through the first six months (My husband had never heard of that tradition and thought that I’d forgotten that we had cake in the freezer. Ate, some of it and then called to remind me that we had cake. Do I hear a collective intake of shocked breath?) The tradition comes from the 19th century [There were a lot of things pertaining to cakes happening during that century. I wonder if Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom loved cake. Yum.] Anyway, during the 19th century, it was usual and expected that the bride and groom would invariably have a child 9 months or so after their marriage, so the top layer of the cake was saved to have at the Christening. This was before refrigeration, so where were they keeping it? For nine months and was it still any good? Boggles the mind doesn’t it? Maybe they were filled with liquor to keep or fermented or fermenting fruit?
