Finding that special cake for your special day or your wedding sounds fun, right? Tasting all those yummy confectionery treats and yes, it can be done, but don’t over due it all in one day or you will have destroyed your taste-buds and gotten sick of cake even before your big day. Plus, if you do too many taste testings all in one day, all the cakes taste will run into each other and you won’t be able to tell which cake was your favorite. That is not unless you have taken extensive notes. Taste testing cakes should be done much like the tasting of good wine. You must rinse your palette between each flavor or you are not giving the new flavor its full due.
Price – Probably the biggest consideration is how expensive is the cake. Some Designer Wedding Cake Makers charge in excess of £1500 for a three tiered cake whereas other smaller and less well-known wedding cake makers can often create equally good cakes for a fraction of the price. Budget – Is your Wedding Cake Baker able to work with you in order to make your cake within budget. I’m not talking about the crude process of haggling but rather, if necessary, whether the cake maker can use their skill and experience to suggest small modifications or alternatives that can bring the cost down. Hopefully having considered these questions you will now how some further thoughts as to what to look for in a Wedding Cake Baker and possible questions to ask them.
How does a cake that big fit into the backseat of my Civic? Great question. It doesn’t. It fits into the back of your baker’s cargo van, and sometimes they charge you for this service. Make sure you ask if there are delivery fees associated with the cake. This can be hidden, so be sure to ask. Also ask how much decorating the baker will do when they drop the wedding cakes off. Will the dress it with flowers? Or leave it on the door step for someone else to ”deal” with?!
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.
