For Starters, The wedding cake has evolved over the years. Starting off as a simple symbol of fertility, it has transformed itself into an artistic tradition that can have many different artistic interpretations. For many ancient peoples wheat was a symbol of fertility and a bountiful harvest. The Ancient Romans used to throw grains of wheat at the bride and groom to ”wish fertility” to the new couple during their wedding. This custom eventually evolved into bringing little cakes made from wheat to the wedding banquet itself. People would then crumble this cake over the head of the bride to wish the happy couple ”many children”. The guests would then eat the fallen crumbs as a symbol of sharing in the couple’s good fortune.
What about the cake provided by the wedding reception site? What about ignoring it? That cake is being outsourced to a baker skilled in the creation of wedding cakes, then it’s being brought to your wedding and added to your bill with a nice profit markup for the reception hall. There is almost no instance when it makes sense to order this cake over one you can get direct from a baker. Be warned, however, that some reception facilities will CHARGE you for bringing in a different cake. They will refer to it as a ”plating” fee or some other such nonsense, but it can cost over $1 per person if your facility charges such a fee. Better to ask upfront to avoid any surprises to your budget.
Do some advance planning. Make sure that your clients or hosts are educated about the types of fillings that would be best suited for their events. Fillings can be made from scratch or bought. The fillings made from scratch are highly perishable and should remain refrigerated. New filling recipes should not be tried the night before an event. If you have to do something new, test the recipe out two weeks before. That way, if you need to make changes, you have time to do it or get help. Fillings that come in sleeves at your local cake store can be used right out of the sleeve as they are and the remainder can be refrigerated up to 6 months.
Tastings – The look of the cake is only half of the story the other half is how it tastes. Along with how beautiful a bride’s dress looked one of the other things most remembered or commented upon by wedding guests is how the cake tasted. So it is important that you are confident that the Cake Maker can deliver on taste as well as looks. One way of doing this is to ask for a taste testing (which is often combined with a Consultation) – be aware that some Cake Makers may make a small charge for such tastings. Flavours – An important consideration in the overall taste of a cake is its flavour. Some Cake Makers (for instance Masie Fantasie) offer a wide selection of flavours, however even if not explicitly offered, specific flavours can normally be requested.
