What to consider with wedding cake makers

The choice of a wedding cake designer isn’t easy. In the end, making an exquisite cake that matches your couple’s style, budget and taste isn’t as easy as you think! This helpful guide can assist you in selecting the ideal wedding cake makers for your needs…

Make sure that they are in line with your style

Nowadays wedding cakes are available to fit the individual style of every couple. They can range from traditional tiers of royal icing, to intricate sugar flower designs, and even naked cakes with rustic designs to contemporary drip designs with modern flavors. If you are looking for bakery for your wedding ensure that you go through lots of photos in the portfolio of their business, and not only two or three, to make sure they’ve got the experience to create the type of cake that you want to match the style of your wedding. This is especially important when it comes to intricate sugar designs or custom-designed cakes!

Be aware of distance

It is generally recommended to look local for the wedding cake. The reason for this is that the cost of transportation (and possible issues) are likely to get more expensive the further you travel. Wedding fairs are an excellent venue to meet potential cake bakers. You can view some of their cakes as well as taste samples and talk to the baker directly with a relaxed atmosphere.

Review the availability and read reviews.

If you’re getting your choice of baker, it’s worth looking into two aspects that you can do: availability as well as their online reviews. There are many bakers who have testimonials posted on their website however, it’s best to check out an independent source of reviews to ensure that you’re getting all the facts.

If you’re satisfied with the baker’s feedback and recommendations, you’ll have to look up their calendar or contact them to inquire if they’re available for your specific date. We suggest choosing your baker at least six months ahead. If you’re planning to marry during peak season or the weekend, you might be able to start your search earlier than that. The top suppliers are booked quickly!

Dietary requirements

It’s important to make sure the cake maker you choose is able to meet any dietary needs. It could be vegan, gluten-free, nut-free or diabetic diets. We suggest that you make a separatecake clearly marked designed for guests who have special dietary needs, instead of making a separate layer or tier in the regular cake to prevent cross-contamination.

Consultations and tastings

If you’re planning to hire a wedding cake baker it is possible to meet them to discuss your ideas or for a tasting. As thrilling as it is it is, make sure you have the main details covered (the wedding date, venue along with the flowers and budget) prior to meeting your cake maker. These elements can affect your choice of style. Make a list of pictures of cakes you like, and the details of your floral arrangements and color scheme. This will allow your cake supplier to understand what you’re looking for.

You might also have the chance to sample cakes with the flavors you prefer. Some bakers charge for this, but typically the cost is deducted from the final price of your cake. When you’re able to taste the cakes at the time, or you’re handed small cakes to take home along with you. We suggest not to go in with a full stomach, so that you can be neutral!
