The wedding cake style will relate to your choice for the type of wedding you are having and the overall tone you are taking, whether formal, informal, contemporary, traditional, indoor or outdoor. When you have set the style, you can make all of this information available to your cake designer and provide him or her with a photo or idea of the decor with colors and materials, themes and motifs.
Swimming Pool Cakes – Not with real water, we promise! Picture this: the top cake layer made to look like an endless swimming pool. This can be done by cutting the top square edge off of the cake (like a router would carve out the edge of a wooden table), to simulate an endless pool. Figurines of the bride and groom’s heads could be sticking out of the top of the pool, with shades and sunhats on, holding cocktails of course!
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.
As a cake decorator who sells their cakes or a home baker who prepares desserts for friends and family, it is important to know all of the facts about fillings, which ones need to be refrigerated and which can be left out at room temperature. Your reputation can depend on it, and you certainly do not want to make anyone sick. We know that butter cream frosting does not hold up well in the heat. Think about a fondant covered cake with a filling. Do you think it’s safe to be out in the heat? Maybe not. Chocolate ganache filling melts if left in the heat for a period of time. Did you know that? It’s deceiving. It sets firmly so you can use it as a filling in sculpted cakes and are able to shape it into truffles that are delicious to eat but when a ganache filled cake sits out in the heat, the ganache gets soft and starts to disintegrate which, if it is a stacked cake, could come tumbling down.
