I am not going to answer these questions by recommending a particular Cake Maker, instead I propose to layout and discuss some of the factors that you should be considering when choosing your Wedding Cake Baker. Location – Ideally you would want your Cake Baker to either be based local to yourself (in order to make attending consultations easier) or else close to the reception venue (meaning that your cake will have less distance to travel on the day and less chance of being damaged or delayed, it will also cut down on any delivery charges). Familiarity – Are you the sort of person who would prefer to get to know your cake maker before you entrust them the responsibility of making your cake? If so then you have two options:
How many cake pieces do I need? All you need is this formula: # of Guests – 10 = Number of Pieces needed. Are wedding cakes coordinated with the reception flowers and other decorations? You bet they are. In fact, wedding cakes are often the centerpiece of the décor for many weddings. Your baker will be familiar with his/her role as it relates to dressing up the cake for the wedding. But you should always discuss specifically what the baker will do upon delivering the cake. Sometimes the florist decorates the cake, but many bakers are happy to use the flowers that are being used for your wedding. But that means the florist needs to set aside some flowers to be used as cake decorations, and that means the flowers need to be delivered before the cake is delivered. See how that all ties together? Keep in mind too that when using fresh flowers as cake decorations, be sure that none of them have been sprayed with pesticides or other inedible chemicals.
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?!
When it’s time to make a dessert for a crowd, normal sheet cakes will not fit the bill. It is time for you to step out of your comfort zone and make a massive cake. It’s not as hard as you think. There are two very important things that you should have in your kitchen to make your massive cake a success — three or four heavy duty rimmed baking sheets (depending on how tall you want to make your cake) and parchment paper.
