One of the highlights of your wedding after walking down the aisle is the cake cutting. But wedding cakes are very delicate and require to be handled with care to prevent disasters. Additionally, you must ensure that the cake is well preserved. Sweet Inspirations share some tips on how to avoid wedding cake mishaps:
Hire a professional
Hiring a professional is the single most important way to avoid wedding cake mishaps. A wedding cake captain will ensure that your wedding cake is well preserved and that is where it is supposed to be on time and in great shape. At Sweet Inspirations, we also offer you the best advice on cake preservation.
Keep it at cool temperatures
Forcing a cake to endure high temperatures during summer and the humidity during the spring is likely to have a negative effect on your cake. Additionally, you do not want dents that will take away the whole outlook and beauty of your cake. The colors and decorations may melt away leaving you with a shell of your dream cake.
Avoid high traffic areas
If you want to avoid a falling cake or other wedding cake disasters, placing the cake in a low traffic area should be your highest priority. You do not want the wedding guests tripping all over your wedding cake simply because it is on their pathway at the reception. A good wedding venue manager will help you in ensuring that the cake is placed in a safe place. The wedding cake should also be placed away from the dance floors and should also be placed on a strong and firm table.
The outdoors captures the essence of nature. However, the outdoor is also home for the birds and other insects which might be unwelcome when it comes to partaking in the dessert. Tents, umbrellas, fences and other forms of shelters will go a long way in helping you preserve your irresistible cake.
