Since you will be having a cake at your wedding, you will at some point during your wedding planning have to choose someone to make it for you. Cake city suggests a set of questions you should ask to ensure you get the best deal possible.
How long does it take to make the cake?
The first thing you will need to know is how long it takes to bake and decorate the wedding cake. The shorter it takes, the better it is for you. You do not want a wedding cake maker who takes more than two weeks to bake it.
Are there styles to choose from or are all cakes custom made?
You will need to know is if the baker can provide you with the exact cake you want or if they just have specific styles for you to choose from. Depending on how experienced they are, they may be able to provide you with the exact style you want. If you are to choose one, make sure they are able to bake you a custom cake that has everything you want.
What ingredients are used?
Having settled on the style you want, you will then have to look at the ingredients as these are what will determine the final taste. Butter cream is one of the most common ingredients you can get from many bakers. While still on ingredients, keep in mind that the finer they are, the more the cake will cost.
What Delivery options are offered?
When the cake is baked, it will have to be transported to the reception venue. You will need someone to do this for you and the best person should be the cake maker. There are wedding cake bakers who include the delivery costs with the cost of the cake while others don’t. Others including Cake City factor the cost of delivery into the cake to spare you the additional costs.
Can you work with other vendors?
Since you will also be working with other vendors to help make your wedding a success, you will need to make sure the baker is willing to work with them. The cake maker should be willing to come to the reception venue and set it up for you. If you want fresh flowers on the cake, he/she should work closely with the florist to ensure this happens.
