Sea Shell Cakes – You just can’t go wrong with sea shells on a beach wedding cake. So what shells? Beaded periwinkle, Florida cone, and maculated ear moon, are some of the most beautiful sea shells for decoration. Small pieces of coral, is also another great choice. The sea shells can be real (wash them well!), or can be made from a variety of icing, molding paste or chocolate. Sea shells can be used subtly or as the main design of the cake. A cluster of shells, as the seashell cake topper is a must for this cake design.
How do bakers set their price? One of the big cost drivers is the number of levels of your cake, or in cake parlance: ”Tiers.” The higher the number of tiers, the more baking there is to do. Not only that, wedding cakes become more fragile as you add tiers. This adds to the complexity when delivering and will increase your pricetag. Also, you should consider whether the cake tiers should be stacked right on top of each other, Big Mac-style. Or if you want small columns separating the layers of the cake.
Prepare your cake board – take three 13×19 cake boards and use packing tape to secure them together. Wrap the entire thing in fancy foil which is found at craft stores or online. This will insure that your cake board is strong enough to handle the weight of your massive cake. You can also use Masonite board.
Deposit – It is a reality that most professional Cake makers will need to take a non-refundable deposit at the time of booking in order to reserve them to make your cake, this is usually a token of goodwill as once booked the Cake Baker may have to turn-away business if approached for another wedding on the same day (which becomes increasingly common during the summer months and especially at weekends). While we are talking about deposits it is also common practice for the remainder of the bill to be settled upto four weeks in advance of the wedding. Availability – Be aware that good Cake Makers (like reliable tradespeople) can get booked up early, especially for particularly busy times of the year (such as weekends, the summer and especially weekends in the summer). So avoid disappointment and reserve your cake maker as soon as possible.
