Baby shower cakes are signature symbols of any baby shower event. With various options available for baby shower cakes for girls and baby shower cakes for boys, it is highly unlikely not to find an appropriate custom baby shower cake for your event.
Independent bakers provide a variety of options when shopping for a baby shower cake. They mostly do custom designs and are an excellent choice for your source of cake instead of buying ready-made from shopping stores. Though a tad expensive, their services are personalized and create a unique experience for each of their clients.
You will need to pay a deposit
Before a cake baker starts working on your cake, you will need to pay a deposit and clear the balance when picking it up. The deposit varies from one to another bust is a percentage of the total amount. Hence carry your wallet with you when going to shop for a cake.
The fee charged depends on the design and size of cake
The cheapest cakes are the round-shaped. However, tier cakes are more expensive with the price increase for every additional tier. The more elaborate the design is, the more you should expect to pay. Rich-flavored cakes are also more expensive than single flavor cakes. With these in mind, expect to pay according to how complex your cake design is.
You will need to book in advance
Unlike a grocery or convenience store where you can walk in and pick a cake from the shelves, independent bakers work on order only. They rarely have ready-made baby shower cakes and even if they do, it would not be appropriate for your theme or gender of the child. Therefore, you need to place your order in advance, at least a few weeks before the event day.
You will need to provide details of the event
Details such as the theme of the day, the number of guests expected to attend, favorite colors and flavors are important to have before you set out to find a baker. You will also need to know the gender of the expected child. Such details help the baker narrow down their list of ideas for design and decorations to only those appropriate.
They have a portfolio to show but do welcome your ideas
If you have an idea of an awesome cake design, do not be afraid to share this with your bakers. They have their own portfolio of designs but if nothing impresses you, they are ready to do a custom design for you from scratch.
