Cakes are an unspoken must have in any wedding. Cake City can help you with the process of picking the right cake for your special day but there are certain things you should personally do when shopping around for a wedding cake.
Do a bit of research
Research is very important if you want the best cake during your special day. Look for wedding cake photos online and in magazines as these may help you decide if you are clueless. If you already have a custom style in mind, you also need to know a few basic terms such as buttercream and fondant. Buttercream has a very good taste but can’t molded while fondant can be molded and colored but doesn’t taste that good. Knowing such things can help you know what to go for depending on your wedding guests and theme.
Knowing exactly what you want can make it easier for the baker later as you will have initial ideas that only need slight iterations.
Identify a suitable baker
After you have done the initial research, you need to start looking for and booking your cake baker. It is important to start this early as it may be difficult to get the best baker with a short notice. Get the baker at least 3 months before your wedding day and make sure he/she is able to offer everything you want. You don’t have to nail down the specifics this early as there will be time for that. The key thing is to get the baker to commit to you and you are comfortable with what they offer.
Feel free to set up meetings with several bakers to find out everything from who will bake the cake, delivery and even how much it will cost to see if it is within your budget.
Have the cake personalized
After you get the baker you are comfortable with, start nailing down the specifics and one of them should revolve around personalization of the cake. Your guests will notice the cake the moment they step into the reception venue and you should make it something worth their attention. The cake should match the wedding reception décor and suit your personal style.
