As a child born of Christian parents, the very first ‘party’ your parents host for you will be a christening party. Before you can learn to walk, speak or understand what a party is, family and friends will have already celebrated in your honor; your baptism event. A baptism communion cake is symbolic of the event.
Parents make all the important decisions about the cake such as if to get a custom baptism cake or something plain and simple. Baptism cakes have been an important tradition; equally important to the baptism event itself. Unless you have a befitting replacement of the cake, your guests will be disappointed at the lack of a baptism cake.
Most parents prioritize the other aspects of the baptism day events leaving the cake as the last item on the do list. Booking the baptism date with your pastor, venue and the overall planning on the day’s activities take the first priority. This is where most parents fail and end up settling for a cake or another option simply because they ran out of time.
Here are three common mistakes that you should not make if you are looking forward to serving your guests the perfect baptism cake.
- Wait for last-minute – The last-minute rush can you leave you stressed, conned and disappointed with yourself. Bakers handle different events and do need ample time to be able to deliver on your order on time. If you walked into a cake shop today and wanted a cake by end of the day or the next few days, you will either need to pick one of the ready-made cakes ion display or compromise on several things. For instance, design, decoration and flavors. No baker with a steady number of orders can whip up a fruitcake in one or two days. If they do take in your urgent order, you will pay extra for the fast delivery.
- Go with the cheapest option – Cheap is expensive. A cheaper option will have limitations leading to a very basic cake. If you want an outstanding cake in flavor, design and creativity, you should expect to pay a decent amount for the services.
- Buying a cake without all the details of the event – Do not walk into a bakers shop with scanty details of what you want. You need to at least know the event, the date, the number of guests expected to attend and the overall theme for the event. These details help the baker to narrow down to select options appropriate for your event. Without these, you will be swimming blindly in a list of options and end up overwhelmed and indecisive.
Buying a baptism cake is like shopping for your car or home. You need to have enough time to go through all available options before making a final decision. For a custom cake, you should expect to pay a reasonable fee and should be wary of someone whose charges are too cheap.
