A wedding cake is not just any other accessory but a vital component that is symbolic to any wedding event. Considering the number of wedding cake suppliers out there you need to be absolutely sure that you get exactly what you pay for.
The selection process can also be quite confusing especially for first timers due to the varied flavors currently on the market. At Cake City we have simplified the whole process to help our clients settle for their dream wedding cake with no hassle. Here are some important tips that you need to take into account while in the process of selecting a wedding cake.
Give yourself enough time to pick a wedding cake
At least Three to six months is the ideal time frame to choose a wedding cake that compliments your style and wedding theme. Avoid the last minute rush, it never works out.
Figure out the kind of style that you are looking for
Take your time to browse through pictures either on the internet or on magazine to have an idea of what you like in terms of presentation. Whether it’s something extra tall or a colorful cake you should be able to settle for a certain theme that you think will perfectly fit your overall theme.
Most cakes with fluffy frosting texture are usually frosted in buttercream, whereas smooth cakes with sculptures accents are usually iced with fondant. Cake City staff take you through every available option and help you settle on exactly what will flatter your wedding guests.
Be unique with the design
In order for your wedding cake to stand out, it’s important to go out of your way to experiment with something unique and not the usual designs on the market. It’s good to borrow ideas from different designs and bring their different aspects together and create your own. It’s also important that your wedding cake marches your wedding theme in terms of colour schemes and other preferable aspects.
Schedule your cake tasting sessions
Once you have settled for a particular theme and budget of a cake, its important to schedule a couple of tasting sessions to get a general taste of how your wedding cake will taste. At Cake City we provide our clients with an opportunity to sample the available flavours and discuss the ideal cake that suits your taste. We work around your convenience when it comes to date and time.
Reduce the amount of input from relatives and friends
Choosing a wedding cake can be overwhelming but taking ideas from so many people makes it more complicated. Take a friend or two to accompany you to avoid too many people with varied tastes trying to impose their preferences on you. Remember that it’s your wedding cake and you and your partner should have the final say.
