Sending a congratulatory cake is not as simple as walking into a bakery to buy a cupcake. You need to think about the message to write, the flavors to choose and the cake design to go for. These decisions are not based on your preference rather your recipient’s. In most cases, you will have to buy a custom congratulatory cake that incorporates the right message, design and flavor to the recipient.
With custom cakes, you will have several options to choose from. Do not let your choice be biased based on what you like. Instead, have the recipient’s feelings in mind when buying the cake. If it is personalized to their liking, the more they genuinely appreciate your gesture and would do the same for you.
Below are three golden rules to observe when buying a congratulatory cake.
You wouldn’t want to send a cake with the words, ‘congratulations on your new job’ yet the person is celebrating a promotion. Instead, ‘Congratulations on your new role’ is the ideal message to ice on the cake. A good cake with the wrong message spoils the intentions of the gift. It basically says you were sending the cake gift since its customary to do so but did not take time to actually find out what the person receiving the cake is celebrating., A wrong message just shows how impersonal the cake is and it will probably end up in the trash can depending on how wrong your message was.
Send a favorite flavor
The written rule about gifting is giving something that the person receiving the gift actually likes. Regardless of your reservations or preference, is someone prefers copper to gold, do get them that. The same applies to cake. Send a cake that’s a favorite flavor for the person receiving it. They will enjoy it more.
Pick the right size
Cakes come in different sizes and presentation. A cupcake still qualifies as cake but you need to ask yourself if one is ever enough. Nobody eats cakes alone. They will either share it with their family, friends or colleagues if the cake is dropped at their workplace. Hence, always send a generous size enough for the recipient to invite people around them to share. You also do not want to buy too big a cake. You probably aren’t the only person sending a congratulatory cake and the recipient may end up with too much cake than they can eat or share. This rarely happens though.
