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.
Prepare your cookie sheets – Line each one of your cookie sheets with parchment paper cut long enough so that it extends over the side of the pan so that you can fit the parchment down into the corners. If you are not sure how much parchment paper to use, roll it out onto the cookie sheet and then set another cookie sheet on top of it and push down. Cut the excess parchment paper off. Repeat until all of your cookie sheets are covered. Set them aside.
Refrigerated Fillings, If your event is held indoors whether it is a big hall or someone’s home, feel free to use a filling that has to be refrigerated. Cream cheese, custards, pastry cream, whipped cream, puddings, and any mousse type fillings that include fresh fruit are perfect for these venues. Cakes can remain refrigerated until right before serving. Let people know when they request these fillings that there needs to be space in the refrigerator to store the cake until serving. A lot of people fill the refrigerators with everything else and then have to scramble to find room for the cake. It cannot sit out for a long period of time or there will be a disaster. Speaking of disaster, please do not mix up a batch of the pudding mix as it is instructed on the box and use that as a filling for your cakes. Unless it’s made like a mousse, it will not hold up to the weight of the cake on top and will ooze out and make a mess.
Themed wedding cakes may not only reflect the reception but may be based on your honeymoon location. For instance, the wedding cake topper might include a Hawaiian motif as a palm tree on a sand bar, or a couple surfing or mountain climbing. In that manner, the typical bride-and-groom on top can be changed with a subtle bit of humor on an otherwise traditional tiered wedding cake by replacing the topper with Kermit and Miss Piggy, or any of your playful alter-egos.
