As your wedding progresses perfectly with each session, it soon gets to the reception and entertainment session. This is where all the fun is and the highlight is the cake cutting session. As usual, couples literally save the best for last. There usually is a beautiful wedding cake, delicious and inviting just as the ceremony is coming to an end.
However, not all wedding cakes are inviting, especially with custom wedding cakes. There is what the couple envisioned and expected versus the reality on display at that critical moment.
How To properly order a wedding cake?
- Define your theme – It is good to have all these cool ideas for your wedding but it makes it difficult to successfully implement all these in one wedding cake. If you agree on one theme, one idea, it is easy to explain this to your baker who will then envision nit and create it in your wedding cake.
- Find the right baker – You’d rather cut other wedding expenses but afford a great baker for your cake. Custom wedding cakes are the hardest to craft and it takes artistry and experience to create something beautiful and delicious at the same time.
- Shop your wedding cake in good time – The best time to start deciding on your wedding cake is several months before the actual wedding. You will have enough time to try different bakers, samples and even have a mock-up of your wedding cake done before the D-day. Last minute shopping will land you in desperate need and you will either compromise on quality or design just to have something masquerading as a wedding cake.
- Take professional advice – You are the client and what you say goes, but it could be the worst choice or decision depending on several factors. Listen to your baker; let him/her tell you why his option is better than yours or why some of your ideas won’t work. Remember, the first step to an epic cake is baking it before all the decoration is done. One of your decorative choices may be conflicting with the flavors or ingredients of the cake. As such the overall outcome would not work.
