The Version of Today, In today’s world the elaborate wedding cake is no longer reserved for the rich and famous. Every couple can share in the tradition of having a wedding cake added to their big day. The wedding cake specialists of today’s world have taken their art to towering heights (pardon the pun). Long gone are those bland days when you were limited to a white cake with white frosting. Although a white cake will probably always be the most popular due to its traditional meaning, today’s couple is limited only by the limits of their imagination (and budget) when it comes to their wedding cake.
Non-Refrigerated Fillings, Any of the sleeves of fillings bought at your local cake decorating store should be fine at room temperature. So are the jellies, preservatives and ganache. Whenever using the fillings in the sleeves, remember the dam of frosting around the edge of the cake. You don’t want it oozing out once the cake settles. Trust me on this one. That is why it’s best to use the following technique for fillings. Make sure that you have a thick dam of frosting going around the edge of the cake. Add no higher than a 1/4” high layer of filling. For example, whenever I use lemon filling, I split the cake layer in half, add the dam of frosting, spread the lemon filling and then put the two layers together.
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.
Delivery – Most Cake Makers will offer a local delivery and setup service, but it is worth checking just how local and whether they charge. Alternatively if your budget is tight then ask whether they allow you to arrange for a friend to collect the cake.
