How to Choose Your Perfect Wedding Cake
When it comes time to choose your wedding cake, you want to make sure it is both beautiful and delicious. With these two elements, you will find some sweet success on your special day. The following are just a few tips you can keep with you as you navigate your journey to find the best wedding cake.
Remember to Start Early. Wedding cakes can take a long time depending on how big it needs to be and how much detail is involved. It is not something you ever want to leave until the last minute. You also have to remember that certain elements of the cake may be delicate and may not withstand heat as well as others, so keep that in mind if you have an outdoor summer wedding, for example.
Find the Right Baker. Getting references and listening to word of mouth reviews come in handy when finding the right baker for your wedding. It is always a good idea to meet with the baker and sample some of their cake options.
What is Your Style? You may find some highly specialized bakers that may not necessarily align with the ideas you have in your mind for your perfect wedding cake. Take notes of what you want so when you consult with bakers; you know exactly what questions you need to ask.
Cost Upgrades. Some bakers may charge more for what they consider premium flavors, so when meeting with potential bakers, inquire about their pricing for flavors and fillings to make sure everyone is on the same page. Also, don’t worry about choosing flavors that everyone else at the wedding will like. It is your big day, so choose the flavors you like. It is your cake, after all.
Find Your Inspiration. Finally, just find your inspiration. We are sure that you will get inspired by the many ideas we have outlined for you above. What is your wedding style? Sometimes figuring this out can help kickstart the process and makes it much easier for you to narrow down options and start designing the perfect wedding cake with your baker.
